Volunteering for the International Spring Festival

For the past 25 years, the  International Spring Festival  helped the community celebrate the heritage. The festival  is made possible because of the generous donations from many sponsors and the work of over 200 volunteers.

Au Pair meetings.

The Au Pair meetings are designed for cultural exchange.  They give the Au Pairs an opportunity to meet new Au Pairs from around the word and form friendships. The cluster meetings also create a sense of unity and belonging to the group of Au pairs that have a lot of common. The cluster meeting give Au Pair a chance to talk to a Local Area Representative if there are any issues or questions and prevent many issues.

We had a great Au Pair meeting and the second annual buddy appreciation party on 02.28.2016 at Brunswick Zone XL Feasterville, Bucks County, PA. Please read a post by our new Au Pair from Ukraine Tanya.

The Au Pair meetings promote cultural awareness and help gain a new experience. I invited to our last meeting the school teacher Claudia Young.

Claudia  started MAKE A DIFFERENCE CHILDREN’S FOUNDATION four years in one of Bucks County schools. Make a Difference is involved in many projects to help children in both our local and global communities.  MAKE A DIFFERENCE mission is to bring relief to children living in poverty.

The Foundation is making a difference in the lives of children living in some of Nigeria’s poorest areas. Claudia shared the stories of a few kids she met during her two trips to Nigeria. Many Au Pairs were touched by those stories. They met Claudia after the Au Pair meeting and discussed ways they can participate in MAKE A DIFFERENCE projects.  It was great to see how everyone was involved and wanted to help.

Perhaps, Au Pairs can volunteer at The International Spring Festival with other Go Au Pair clusters and joined many other projects to help the foundation to MAKE A DIFFERENCE to children living in poverty!
