Au Pairs Buddy Day celebration

Au Pairs Buddy Day celebration can be a new cluster tradition. Au Pair friends

We have many traditions in our cluster that are passing from former Au Pairs to newcomers, and create a sense of unity and belonging to the cluster.

There are many great traditions already. One of them is welcoming a new Au Pairs on facebook, which is very important to a new Au Pair. We greeting a new Au Pair when she is still in her country and make her feel as a part of the cluster even before she comes to the USA.

Other ritual is interviewing a new Au Pair and posting about her on this blog.  That is a first meeting with a new Au Pair online and help her make more friends. Every Au Pair has a chance to answer a few questions.  This is Cosima’s project, and she calls it “Au Pair Mission.” Au Pair internatioanl

Another tradition is a buddy support. We started Au Pairs buddy program for new Au Pairs who joined the Philadelphia and  NJ Go Au Pair cluster a few months ago. We had a great experience since that. Many Au Pairs become great buddies and helped new Au Pairs a lot.

Traditions are an important way to create  a positive cluster culture. I think  that celebrating a Buddy Day will be a great new tradition and create pleasant memories.
