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.

Cultural exchange activities for Au Pairs in Bucks County, PA

I invite you to learn more about  Go Au Pair Program and the Philadelphia and NJ area Go Au Pair’s cluster!  We had a very successful 2013 year and many happy families and Au Pairs. “We were also fortunate to have the kind support of our Local Area Representative, who is great with organizing the Au Pairs in her cluster“, commented a host father from Bucks County, PA

The Philadelphia and NJ cluster has doubled, and also six families from this cluster nominated their Au Pairs for the “Au Pair of the Year Award 2013″.aupair excellence

There are many unique programs that support Go Au Pair’s Au Pairs- Au Pair Sis,  Au Pairs Buddy program, etc. The agency believes that happy Au Pairs are the driving force behind happy kids and families.Au Pair Sis

As a Local Area Representative for Go Au Pair in the Philadelphia and NJ area, I feel that it is very important to offer to the Au Pairs rich cultural exchange activities.  “I really like Japanese festival at Fairmount park. So far, I attended all the Au Pair activities and I like all of them!”, commented Au Pair Ophelia.

Au Pairs at Go Au Pair Chinese new year  party

We started 2014 with learning about Chinese Culture and celebrating Chinese New Year. In March, Au Pairs  from the Philadelphia and NJ area volunteered at the Philadelphia Flower Show Au Pairs  Philadelphia Karla and Joana

Volunteering is part of American culture, and many Au Pairs have never volunteered before. In addition to a spirit of volunteerism and helping a community, volunteering with Au Pairs friends provided Au Pairs with an opportunity of learning cultures of other countries and have fun with friends. We even motivated Go Au Pair in Providence  to volunteer –Go Au Pair Providence Wants to Volunteer!
