Au Pair Cultural Activities
Au Pairs are required to attend a number of Cultural Activities with their Local Area Representative and nearby Au Pairs to make sure they experience the local community and culture during their stay. Below are some of the activities Amanda’s cluster has been up to recently!
The Greek festival introduced the Au Pair to Greek food and cultural entertainment. There was dancing, arts, crafts, and food trucks. Everyone had a fantastic time! The Au Pairs enjoyed the dancing the most!
Chocolate World was a hit! Everyone loved the free chocolate, but the Au Pairs enjoyed learning that Hershey’s Chocolate uses Coco beans from their native country, interesting if you ask me!
Time at an arcade like Dave and Busters is always fun! The Au Pairs really enjoy seeing the kids play the games and watching their faces light up when they win prizes.
