Kachemak Bay Family Planning Clinic and the REC Room are committed to creating long-lasting community connections through education and outreach.
We offer programs that support the health of individuals, families, and communities through partnerships with the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District schools and other community organizations. KBFPC and REC Room staff also engage directly in community coalitions and outreach activities with different public groups and educational events.
The KBFPC-REC Peer Education team offers comprehensive, evidence-informed, peer-taught sexual health and wellness lessons for middle and high school students. Local teens are trained and employed part-time to teach with adult staff. For more information on how to get involved or learn about our Peer Educators, please visit our REC Room website.
Education Resources & Programs
Kachemak Bay Family Planning Clinic and the REC Room offer an age-appropriate range of trauma-informed and resiliency-oriented healthy lifestyle education opportunities for teens or adults, including:
Sexual Health & Wellness Education
A comprehensive, medically accurate, evidence-informed lesson package presented by trained staff and Peer Educators in local schools. Focus areas include Reproductive Health, Communication & Consent, Healthy Relationships, STI Prevention, and Understanding Sexuality & Identity.
Safe Zone workshops help adults or youth build more awareness of the LGBTQIA+ community by exploring sexuality and gender identity and how unconscious bias can impact our perceptions of students, coworkers, or community members. A great starting place and an opportunity for trauma-informed and inclusive staff training or professional development.
Resiliency & Substance Misuse Prevention
Developing an understanding of basic substances and stigma, and helping teens identify resilience tools through practicing body regulation, gratitude, and communication strategies. Strong focus in resource referrals and understanding who to go to for help in the community.
REC Room Adult/Parent Nights
Adult guardian events hosted at the REC Room, open to the community as a chance to build relationships between adults and our educators before teens are in class, learn about our lessons and ask any questions, prepare for student questions at home, and participate in growing the community of safe and trusted adults for local youth. Contact the REC Room for information about upcoming events.
KBFPC staff also engage directly in community coalitions and in-person and virtual outreach activities with different public groups and educational events. The agency facilitates public forums and presentations on issues of sexual and reproductive health, such as parent/teen communication, adolescent development, violence awareness and prevention, healthy sexuality and development, STI prevention, and breast and cervical health.
We look forward to connecting with community members and clients at some of these events around town:
