Workshop Coordinator


A key component in S4K’s mission is providing instructional workshops for transracial adoptive and foster families who need assistance caring for children’s textured hair. These workshops are held in-person and led by a qualified S4K stylist. We rely on local salon and business partners to provide a location for us to run our workshops. We also need our local Workshop Coordinators to spread the word about upcoming workshops and encourage families to register and attend. 
If you have a location that can host a workshop or if you have connections to an organization or group of potential workshop participants, please complete our contact form. Our Care Ambassador Coordinator will reach out to you with next steps.

S4K provides textured hair care training to qualified stylists and salons to maximize our ability to reach biracial families, group foster homes, and the transracial foster and adoptive communities.
