The Au Pair program opens the world.

Could you imagine leaving your country in your early 20 for the first time and flying to a different continent without any support, without knowing that there are people who will assist you?

The Au Pair program opens the world. Many young people are grateful for an opportunity to be an Au Pair  and explore the world. There are many interesting place to explore even around their area when Au Pairs attend Go Au Pair cluster meetings.IMG_9025

2013 year was a great year for the Au Pair Ophelia He from China. She has accomplished a lot thanks to the Au Pair program, her host family in Philadelphia and Go Au Pair agency.

On July 8, 2013  Ophelia arrived to New York! This was the first flight in her life and a long one-a whopping 20 hours.New York workshop

After the New York Workshop, where she met Au Pair Sis and a lot Au Pairs from around the world, Ophelia started her wonderful Au Pair life in Philadelphia.Au Paiirs goaupair

Since her arrival, Ophelia has had so many good memories together with her friends and her host family, many of which have been memorialized  in Ophelia diary.

The Au Pair program opens the world for Ophelia. She has already explored many interesting places in Philadelphia and outside  during her vacation time. Ophelia volunteered at the Philadelphia Marathon, traveled to Atlantic City, spent Thanksgiving in Houston, visited a new host family in Las Vegas, celebrated her first Christmas in Alaska and Chinese New Year in Philadelphia,  and even hiked in Hawaii.

Ophelia has many plans for the future and is grateful for the Au Pair program granting her the opportunity to explore the world.  I think that it has been a great experience for Ophelia’s host family as well.  The family nominated Ophelia Host Family for the IAPA Au Pair of the Year Award in 2014. Read a press release Au Pairs in Excellence Nomination- Au Pairs stand out.

    What family couldn’t benefit from the cultural diversity and learning that comes with the Au Pair Program? Au Pairs are special young people who embody a braveness not all of us can say we have acted upon! What a great role model for anyone’s child! American girls can learn a lot by traveling overseas and experiencing au pair life too! Here’s a blog wrote: http://goaupairprovidence.wordpress.com/2014/06/04/open-your-world/
