Many new Au Pairs will join the Philadelphia, Bucks County and NJ cluster in January and February 2017, so the cluster Au Pairs are looking forward to being a buddy and sharing their experience with them.
The Au Pair Buddy program started in March 2014 and since that time each new Au Pair from the Philadelphia, Bucks County and NJ cluster had an Au Pair Buddy- a supportive friend.
I asked Au Pair from Germany Cosima why she wanted to be a buddy and she said “Because I know that it’s important to have a helping hand in the beginning. Everything is new to you and you feel kind of lost at some point. And then it’s great to have a person who’s there for you. I’m happy to be that person! And on top it’s an awesome way to gain new friends!”
Au Pairs have tons of things in common and a lot of experiences that they can share. The buddy shows the area around, introduce the new Au Pair to her friends and have fun together. The buddy can listen the stories and concerns, understand the feelings and worries and give a piece of advice
Thank you to the new buddies
