Happy Au PairsHappy Host Families!IMG_20131214_154102

Every year Go Au Pair in Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery County and close NJ has many activities where Au Pairs get to know each other better, meet the Local Area Representative( me), have fun and make friends. Go Au Pair requires all Au Pairs to attend at least 4 meetings for each 12 month program year. The Holiday Party is “the mandatory activity”, a special Au Pair celebration with a gift exchange, games and fun that I want every Au Pair from the cluster to experience and remember.Au Paiirs goaupair

I also organize two family activities each year.  The Department of State requires that host families attend at least one activity each year.  Host family welcome to join us at any of our Au Pair activities except the Holiday party in December.

In 2014, we will explore many new places. Please, mark your calendar.
