Au Pair cultural exchange program.

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

All Au Pairs attend American schools and meet students around the worlds and polish their English.Au pair Go  Au pair in class

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.

Some Au Pairs asked why they should volunteer when there are so many things Au Pairs can do for fun in their free time. I asked Brenda, who volunteered in the USA for her first time, to answer the questions.Au Pairs face painting

1. Tell me a little bit about yourself and some of your interests and hobbies? I’m Brenda Gonzalez and I am Au Pair from Mexico,  I consider myself a fighter because I don’t like just leave the things without try to do it first, or just quit.

I always try to do my best, I love to help people whenever it will be possible for me, I always try to see the positive side to the situations. I love to practice swimming, paint, and spend time with my family and friends. When I was in Mexico I was studying international trade but I interrupted to come here as an Au Pair.

2. Why did you join Go Au Pair team and volunteer at Rice’s market on 09.20.2014 ? – I joined in the team because it was for help and support the children with Autism, so it was good enough reason for me.

3. What did you like about the event. – I liked all the people who were interested in can help us with this sweet cause, I also liked all the new friends that I met there, I think we made an excellent teamwork.

4. Have you volunteered before? Where? How long? What did you do? – No, I never had been a volunteer before.

5. What attracts you to working for Autism Speaks? My Local Area Representative told us about the event and I decided to participate in it and make happy some people.

6. What are a few of your special skills that make you a good volunteer?- I had never done it before, so I just gave my best in the chore that I was in charge and always give people a big smile.

7. What do you think makes a person a good volunteer?- I think only depends on the desire you have to help people!faicepainting with au pair Andrea

Thank you, Brenda, for joining Go Au Pair team and volunteering with us. You are very good in face painting and made a lot of kids happy.Au Pair from Mexico face painting
