Options for Fulfilling Au Pair Education Requirement, spring semester 2021

The Spring semester is only a few weeks away and more students than ever before are turning to blended and online programs to meet their educational needs. During the Au Pair year Au Pairs should complete six semester hours or the equivalent 72 hours (12 credits or 144 hours for Educare program.) The Department of State temporarily accepts the classes from approved Colleges online. Please contact Go Au Pair at educoord@goaupair.com for written approval of this exception.

Many Au Pairs from Go Au Pair Philadelphia cluster complete the Au Pair program education requirement by taking classes online. Coursera offers more than 3,800 courses from Yale, Google, Duke, AWS, and more, some classes are free! Also many Au Pairs take classes with EDX.

This year the Spring semester courses are mostly remote & online, and some designated hands-on classes will take place on campus with safety protocols. Check them.

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.”

 Au Pairs volunteers

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….!! “
