Who We Are

Our mission is to facilitate healthy relationships, health education, and healthy choices for youth in Homer.

About Us

Established in 2010 to serve the youth of the community, the REC Room is an outreach program offered through the Kachemak Bay Family Planning Clinic. We support the Clinic’s mission to provide education in a supportive and empowering environment.

The REC is here to help meet the needs of our community’s youth. We offer high-quality, vital information and support to help young people make positive choices and have healthy relationships. Evidence-based Positive Youth Development practices are infused into all aspects of the REC Room culture.

Land Acknowledgement

Structured activities at KBFPC’s youth programs begin with an acknowledgment that we live and work in the unceded territories of the Alutiiq, Sugpiaq, and Dena’ina people, to show respect for indigenous Alaska Native peoples and recognize their continuing relationship to the land. This public gesture is a formal way to express gratitude and appreciation for elders past, present, and future, and raise awareness about histories that are often suppressed or erased.

Tyler Moskios-Schlieman • Education Coordinator
(he/they)

Tyler joined the REC Room in the fall of 2019 and has enjoyed bringing vital information to the youth of Homer since then by coordinating educational opportunities with schools and local organizations with the help of the Peer Ed Team. His own continuing education has included several trainings through the National Center for Sex Education, various violence prevention trainings, Youth Mental Health First Aid, and other AASECT-certified (American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, & Therapists) professional development trainings. Tyler was born in Yakima, Washington, got his BA from the University of Washington, and has spent time living in Seattle, Brooklyn, and now Homer, where they hope to continue to live for a long time and create more resiliency and connection within the community. In their free time, Tyler co-hosts a weekly radio show with Sierra Moskios-Schlieman, paints, gardens, loves to travel when possible, and runs his coffee business at the Farmer’s Market during the summer.
