The R.E.C. Room is planning some super entertaining and educational programs over spring break and we want youth ages 12-18 to get involved.

 On Tuesday, March 11, from 3-6 p.m. at the R.E.C. Room, we’re hosting a Langar FORK Club Cooking class taught by local yoga teachers and cooks, Anna Raupp and Kayla Spaan. Langar is a traditional concept which includes cooking, serving and eating vegetarian meals together. We will be learning to cook an inexpensive, healthy and tasty meal together — all while having a whole lot of fun. Sign up for FORK Club is required. Contact the R.E.C. Room. These popular cooking classes for youth would not be possible without support from the Homer Foundation’s Youth Advisory Committee. 

We’re stoked to announce that Homer will again be hosting another spoken word/slam poetry session with Brave New Alaskan Voices from March 12-15. BNAV is a program targeted for youth ages 13-19 years old to publicly perform their own written works. The writing workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, March 12, from 3-5:30 p.m. A performance workshop will happen on Thursday, March 13, from 3-5:30 p.m. The final workshop is Friday, March 14, will cover music production in collaboration with Youth On Record AK. This workshop is also from 3-5:30 p.m. A tentative performance is also in the works, so stay tuned. All youth have to do for the writing workshops is just show up to the R.E.C. Room at that time. Bringing this youth slam poetry group back down from Anchorage to empower Homer youth would not be possible without sponsorship by Bunnell Street Arts Center’s Cosmic Agents with support from Homer Foundation’s Willow Fund. 

The FORK Club cooking class and BNAV workshops are all free for youth ages 12-18. Get involved, get inspired, get pumped.  235-6736 or recroom@kbfpc.org
