The Au Pair year- learning and giving

Talking about the Philadelphia NJ cluster of Go Au Pair tradition, I would like to introduce another our cluster tradition volunteering. Volunteering is a favorite meeting for many Au Pairs. Volunteering, learning and giving became our cluster tradition.Go Au Pair team volunteered in Philadelphia

Au Pair Ophelia said, “One of the best memory for my first Au Pair year is volunteering! Even though I just been here less than one year, I already volunteered four times.”

There are many ways to volunteer.  We had very many different experiences that helped the Au Pairs learn new skills and give back to the community. We volunteered  and helped the adoptive families at the Philadelphia Marathon  and helped the American Cancer Society. We also volunteered at the Flower Show, and Welcome Day Arts Festival in Newtown PA. Every event was unique and special.IMG_20131117_132533

Au Pair Monica said, “This was my first time as a volunteer, and I can say, without a doubt, that I would love to do it again because being a volunteer you can feel the real power of the good energy coming to you. See you guys in the next adventure….!! “

Adriana said about her child care experience: “Every day I prepare the food for kids, feed them and give kids classes.  I help them take a bath, do homework, read a story, sing a song and pray with them.  We have a lot of activities: play outside, do some crafts, and decorate our house before the holidays.  I teach kids Chinese song, Chinese poem and Mandarin. I have a lot of fun with my host kids.”
