Hello 2020! Here’s to another year full of joy, laughter, and unforgettable memories with unforgettable friends!

We are ready for you- a new Au Pair meetings schedule for Au Pairs with Go Au Pair in the Philadelphia and Bucks County cluster set and it helps make even more memories in 2020.

The Au Pair meetings give the Au Pairs an opportunity to meet new Au Pairs from around the word and form friendships. The cluster meetings also create a sense of unity and belonging to the group of Au Pairs.

The cluster meeting give Au Pair a chance to talk to a Local Area Representative if there are any concerns or questions and prevent many issues.

Go Au Pair requires all Au Pairs to attend at least 4 meetings for each 12-month program year. We will have two meetings every quarter of 2020, eight meetings during the year. Be sure to mark your calendar ahead.

On February 15, 2020, we will join AFRICAN CULTURES CELEBRATION at Penn Museum, 3260 South St, Philadelphia, PA 19104. Au Pairs welcome to attend a class on  filing 2019 tax return and the Library tour,  Parkway Central Library in March 2020.

The Department of State requires that host families attend at least one activity each year. Every April Host families join a Family Day Conference at The Lansdale International Spring Festival, North Penn High School, Lansdale, PA 19446. Host family welcome to join us at any of our Au Pair activities.

The Au Pair meetings promote cultural awareness and help gain a new experience and make new friends. I hope you will enjoy our upcoming meetings!
