The Go Au Pair family.

Go Au Pair agency constantly supports the agency’s Au Pairs through their experience. There are many experts in Go Au Pair team or Go Au Pair family who provide the personalized assistance and mentor our Au Pairs.

A special support from Au Pair Sis Janine helps Au Pairs from Go Au Pair feel that they are not alone in the USA. Janine, the Local Area Representative from the New Jersey, became a big Sister to many Au Pairs from Go Au Pair.

Even before their arriving, Au Pair Sis reaches many Au Pairs and helps them connect with a big Go Au Pair family on Facebook. Au Pair Sis posts on Au Pair Sis Facebook interesting information, fun stuff and activities for the Au Pairs all the time. Au Pair Sis

Go Au Pair team helps the Au Pairs learn about the Au Pair program, prepare to the journey and find the answers to their questions. The Au Pairs can do that by watching Au Pair Sis’s videos about Au Pair experience and cultural différence, reading very informative Au Pair Sis blog on the Go Au Pair website. Au Pair Success Coordinator provides regular support to all Au Pairs during the program year.

There is also a consistent local support from a Local Area Representative (LAR) and other Au Pairs from the area. The local support includes help from a cluster Au Pairs that is also a closed group on facebook, the Au Pairs Buddy program and the cultural exchange activities. LAR helps connect new Au Pairs with other Au Pairs in the area, keeps consistent communication with Au Pairs and helps them to get the best experience.Bucks County Au Pair meeting

Au Pairs Buddy Day celebration

Au Pairs Buddy Day celebration can be a new cluster tradition. Au Pair friends

We have many traditions in our cluster that are passing from former Au Pairs to newcomers, and create a sense of unity and belonging to the cluster.

There are many great traditions already. One of them is welcoming a new Au Pairs on facebook, which is very important to a new Au Pair. We greeting a new Au Pair when she is still in her country and make her feel as a part of the cluster even before she comes to the USA.

Other ritual is interviewing a new Au Pair and posting about her on this blog.  That is a first meeting with a new Au Pair online and help her make more friends. Every Au Pair has a chance to answer a few questions.  This is Cosima’s project, and she calls it “Au Pair Mission.” Au Pair internatioanl

Another tradition is a buddy support. We started Au Pairs buddy program for new Au Pairs who joined the Philadelphia and  NJ Go Au Pair cluster a few months ago. We had a great experience since that. Many Au Pairs become great buddies and helped new Au Pairs a lot.

Here is the list of our lucky Au Pairs and their buddies

new Au Pair Jenny from Germany and her buddy Carmen from S. Africa

new Au Pair Natalia from Colombia and her buddy Karla from El Salvador.
new Au Pair Nita from S. Africa and her buddy Cosima  from Germany

Traditions are an important way to create  a positive cluster culture. I think  that celebrating a Buddy Day will be a great new tradition and create pleasant memories.

Au Pair Ophelia

Everyone said three things about herself,  two of which were true and one that was not. We enjoyed this game a lot.

Au Pairs presents

After the meal, we went to the Au Pair Jacqueline host family’s house where we had desserts and played the White Elephant Gift Exchange Game.Au pair party

Every Au Pair brought a dessert, then we shared all of them together. It seemed like everyone got the gifts they liked, so we didn’t exchange the gifts too much. Then we had two more games, they both quite interesting.
