The Au Pair program is a cultural  exchange program. Go Au Pair does everything to help their Au Pairs get a rich cultural exchange experience.  There is a local support from Local Area Representatives who hold cultural meetings and special programs for Au Pairs from Go Au Pair “Bed and Breakfast” or “Au Pair Sis” programs.

The Au Pair program helps Au pairs learn about American culture. For young people considering to visit the US, Au Pair is an exciting and rewarding cultural exchange experience. They make international friends and their host family often becomes their second family abroad.Au Pair friends

The Au Pairs attend Au Pairs meetings  and meet other Au Pairs. Go Au Pair recruits Au Pairs from many countries, Au pairs  learn from a huge cultural diversity around them. Right now there are Brazilian Au PairsChinese Au PairsColombian Au PairsSalvadorian Au PairsEcuadorian Au PairsPanamanian Au PairsSouth African Au PairsMexican Au Pairs, Cameroonian Au PairAu Pairs Bucks County, NJ, Philly

They explore the country and  learn American culture firsthand.  Au Paiirs goaupair

American culture is a mix of  traditions from around the world since it is a country of immigrants.go-au-pair-at-the-picnic

The United States is a great place for cultural exchange because there are a lot of opportunities to learn about other ways of life.

Halloween Cluster Meeting

First of all, I’d like to thank Polina for hosting a wonderful Halloween party for the au pairs where we had great food, fun games and also got the chance to make new friends.

IMG_3235

During our party, Polina organized some Halloween games which was a lot of fun. We played the Candy Corn Relay Race, Apple Peeling,  Apple Seed Testing and we got a glimpse  into our future with some candles, here were the results:

Violet: You’ll be blessed spiritually and overcome something difficult in your future.

Green: You’ll have balance and harmony in your future, and you’ll also become sexy ;)

Pink: You’ll have passion, love and nurturing in your future.

The winner of the costume competition was Cosima, our real red riding hood! Congrats Cosima! :)

IMG_3309

After the competition we changed and headed out to the Active Acres Farm where we first went through the Haunted House, which was done extremely good – if you’re lucky enough, you’ll get to see to your name on a grave in the graveyard behind the house ;)

After doing the Haunted House, we did the Sleepy Hollow Hayride. Personally it was a bit disappointing (and freezing) but we still had a lot of fun! One thing to definitely look forward to is The Headless Horseman.

Everyone that participated, thank you! I’m looking forward to our next cluster meeting, which will be on the second of November for the Autism Walk in Philadelphia :)

Stay tuned!

Anelia’s hobbies include traveling and exploring new things, she also likes kayaking, swimming, horseback riding, tubing and other outdoor activities.

Luisa, another Colombian au pair

Luisa (23) is our new au pair from Columbia that will be replacing Sandra in Ambler, PA. Claudia from El Salvador will be Luisa’s buddy.

10717953_780811745290564_95820471_n

Luisa wanted to be an au pair because she loves children and wanted to know more about American lifestyles and cultures.

Her hobbies include being outdoors, listening to music, watching movies, sports and visiting new places.

10728620_780811741957231_363684450_n

I would describe myself as happy, sincere and respectful. My wish would be to be young forever.

Luisa would like to visit Disney Land, Grand Canyon, California and the Niagara Falls.

Welcome Luisa :)

Lorena, a new Colombian au pair

Lorena (26) is also one of our new Colombian au pairs and she will be living in Chalfont, Philadelphia.

Lorena (2)

Lorena decided to become an au pair because she loves to work and spend time with kids while teaching and sharing beautiful moments with them. She also wants to improve her English and learn about the American culture.
Lorena (4)
Lorena’s hobbies include watching movies, walking and playing board games. She would describe herself as responsible, patient and someone with a positive attitude.
Thus far the favorite part about being an au pair for Lorena has been the part of living with a new family, while learning more about the American ways of living and also that she has the chance to learn more about herself. Lorena’s most valuable lesson here in America owuld be that communication is always key – and I’m sure every au pair would agree with you :)
Lorena

Welcome Lorena! We are all looking forward to getting to know you better and spending more time with you.
