Au Pair meeting in the Masonic Temple

February cluster meeting for Au Pairs from Go Au Pair in the Philadelphia, Bucks County and NJ area is a tour to the Masonic Temple in Philadelphia. We are going to have an interesting tour as a group on Saturday, February 11, 2017 at 1.30 pm.  It will be also a great opportunity to meet all new Au Pairs who joined the cluster recently -Au Pair from Peru  Majo , Au Pair from Ecuador Alejandra, Au Pairs from China Catherine, Alina and Candy,  Au Pairs from Colombia Anita and Dani and Au Pair from Brazil Nadia100_2080This special tour is very educational and a great cultural experience. The Masonic Temple is a one of a kind architectural wonder in the heart of modern Philadelphia. I like that Au Pairs will have an opportunity to explore this place from the inside because when you step inside this building, you will find yourself in another time and place. This is not only the National Landmark , but also “a secret place” full of history and mystery.Au Pairs at the Masonic Temple

We will explore many room/halls with different styles and different architecture.  According to Wikipedia, “The Masonic Temple serves as the headquarters of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania, Free and Accepted Masons. The Temple receives thousands of visitors every year to view the ornate structure, which includes seven lodge rooms, where today a number of Philadelphia lodges and the Grand Lodge conduct their meetings.”philadelphia_masonic_temple

The Temple is one of the more magnificent buildings in Philadelphia. I took the Masonic Temple tour many times with the Au Pairs and they really liked the tour.

If you never been in the Masonic Temple,  you need to experience it yourself. Come join the Au Pairs from around the world and visit this National Landmark and “a secret place” with us.

Being an Au Pair buddy is a special honor.

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.Go Au Pair Team

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
