The Alliance Exchange Voice - Giving Voice to the Power of Exchange
Cultural exchange is at the core of the au pair program, and each winter provides opportunities to show au pairs from warm-weather countries what fun this season can be. AuPairCare’s Westport, CT cluster took advantage of the snow and cold and went ice skating for their monthly event. AuPairCare au pairs from Colombia, Brazil, South Africa, Germany and Switzerland gathered to skate. It was the first time skating for many of the au pairs. Skill levels varied from hugging the rail to quick learners to zipping around the rink, but everyone agreed that they had a great time!
