There are now several excellent curricula that meet the California Healthy Youth Act standards. We work with the following:
Our Whole Lives, Sexuality Education (OWL)
Based on national Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education set by the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS), and have been taught to great acclaim all over the country since the year 2000. Although OWL is jointly published by the Unitarian Universalist Association and the United Church of Christ it is important to know that this curricula is entirely secular, and contains no religious dogma, making it entirely appropriate for use in any school or community setting.
Effective puberty and sexuality education programming requires unbiased, medically accurate programs that can be tailored to meet the unique needs of each student, classroom, and community. Health Connected's five original curricula are just that. Puberty Talk, Teen Talk Middle School, Teen Talk High School, Teen Talk High School Refresher, and Teen Talk Adapted for All Abilities have been designed in accordance with best practices in the field and are among the few curricula nationwide in compliance with the California Healthy Youth Act.
Positive Prevention Plus
A comprehensive evidence-based sexual health and teen pregnancy prevention curriculum for grades 7-12 and out-of- school youth, written in compliance with the updated California Education Code including "The California Healthy Youth Act” (AB 329) and “Sexual Harassment and Violence Instruction“ (SB 695) and the National Health Education Standards.
