Au Pairs educational trips.

One of the great benefits of the Au Pair Program is that Au pairs can travel a lot during their free time, weekends, paid vacation with friends and together with a  host family.

Au Pairs can also travel and earn EDUCATIONAL CREDITS .  This special Au Pair educational trip will combine classroom learning with a tour to the destination studied. The Au Pairs can take classes at Peirce College in Philadelphia during the weekend and then, trips to a favorite destination with Cultural Hi-Ways.

Many former Au Pairs enjoyed the trips with Cultural Hi-Ways and earned the credits. Ophelia, Au Pair from China, wrote about the trip/ classes with Cultural Hi-Ways. Kiah, Au Pair from Australia, wrote about the trip to Washington, DC.

Kiah,  Au Pair from Australia, took this trip recently and shared with others,”Our first stop was the Air Force Memorial. We spent 20 minutes there before being dropped at the National Mall and being given 3 hours of free time. I chose to see the Washington Monument as well as the Holocaust Museum, both free attractions. This trip was absolutely once in a lifetime and I could not recommend it enough!” Read more about the trip to Washington, DC from Kiah post.GoAuPair_Kiah5

Au Pair’s Monument Presentation

Ophelia’s Diary.

I am taking DC Educational Trip class, and the final project for the third class was designing your own Monument.

There were 17 Au Pairs in my class at Peirce College in Philadelphia. Including me, there were 4 Au Pairs from Go Au Pair agency. All of these Au Pairs got together and showed the monuments they designed.Au pair Go  Au pair in class

Some Au Pairs designed monuments to a memory the history of their countries. Some Au Pairs used the monuments to remember their family.Au pair Go  Au Pair in class

My monument was a Valentine’s Day gift for my boyfriend. I spent a whole week on it. And he really likes it a lot.
