First, I helped a very kind couple, we talked a lot. I also shared my Au Pair stories with them.

Then I helped several ladies.When I heard they called out, “ Ophelia, come here! I need your help! “ I felt so warm inside. Needed by others is the best feeling forever. I would like to try my best help others. I also made friends with two ladies. They were so kind to me. Please watch the movie.

At the end of volunteering, I decided to make a hat for myself. These two ladies helped my with my hat.

Helping the community with my Au Pairs friends.

Ophelia’s Diary.

My Au Pairs friends and I love to volunteer and help the community. In China, I didn’t have many opportunities to volunteer. As an Au Pair in America, I enjoy the opportunities to help others. My friend Adriana and I are volunteering in Chinese Gospel Church and helping to teach beginner’s English every Sunday. I also love to volunteer with my Au Pairs friends as a team,  it is even more fun.

On March 1, 2014, 11 Au Pairs from Go Au Pair volunteered for the Philadelphia Flower Show. The Au Pairs from the Philadelphia, Bucks County and NJ area had so much fun together! I can’t wait to share all of them with you.

In the afternoon, all the Au Pairs got into the Convention Center, this is a huge and beautiful place. We had an Au Pair meeting first. We welcomed three new Au Pairs and each Au Pair shared their own experience.Au Pairs Go Au Pair volunteering

Go Au Pair team is going to volunteer again.

 All Au Pairs should try volunteering- it is an amazing experience!

Volunteering is very common in the US. Many Au Pairs told me that they have never volunteered in their countries.

Volunteering together with other Au Pairs and Americans is a rich cultural exchange experience.  Au Pairs get a chance to receive  new experiences and immerse in American culture.
