"Feather Berkower fundamentally changed the way we think about hiring staff. What we learned from her gave us the tools to screen staff better and with more confidence. When a parent asks how we hire, the first things we tell them about are the lessons we learned from Feather. The families that send their children to camp find her work valuable, too, and appreciate it when we sponsor her workshops."
- Tommy Feldman, Founder & Director Altogether Outdoor Summer Camps
“The Parenting Safe Children in-service provided the staff an opportunity to learn and incorporate valuable principles and strategies aimed at keeping children safe within our early childhood learning environment. The information Feather delivered was enlightening and sparked a great deal of productive discussion amongst staff members and parents. Shortly after the workshop, a team of staff and parents collaborated to develop a center-wide safe children policy that is now the standard at our center.”

"Feather Berkower is an amazing presenter who sincerely informs and explores the sensitive subject of sexual abuse of children. She shares valuable information and different approaches for parents and adults who work with children. I believe this will significantly lower the incidents of abuse. Toward that end, I intend to have Feather educate our summer camp staff."
