The positive impact of Au Pairs volunteering for causes in the US.

On Sunday, 11.17.2013, twenty Au Pairs from Go Au Pair are going to volunteer at the Philadelphia Marathon and help the American Cancer Society. It is our first time of participating in such a Marathon. I didn’t expect that almost all Au Pairs in the area would like to join the team, but they did. There will be a huge cultural diversity Brazilian Au PairsChinese Au PairsColombian Au PairsSalvadorian Au Pairs,  Ecuadorian Au Pairs, German  Au Pairs, Panamanian Au PairsSouth African Au PairsMexican Au Pairs, French Au Pairs, Spain Au Pairs, and Cameroonian Au Pairs.Go Au Pair 11

I feel passionate about the positive impact of volunteering at the marathon. Volunteering  will bring a lot of benefits to the community and make a difference.

In addition, it will be useful to the young adults from around the world who choose to volunteer in the US.  It can be a first-hand experience for the Au Pairs and also, a life changing event. The Au Pairs will return back home, share with others and spread their experience all over the globe.

Volunteer AuPair Philadelphia

Volunteering for a cause is not common in some countries, and Au Pairs may feel like ambassadors. Many Au Pairs are very enthusiastic and motivated to change the word for the better. To start changing the world, we may need only to directly impact the lives of a few people. Smal steps… but here is a start – volunteering at the Philadelphia Marathon! See you there!
