“Belonging” is defined by Oxford as “an affinity for a place or situation.”  As cultural ambassadors, au pairs have an important role to play as temporary community members during their time in the US.   They give back in so many ways and area a part of the community in many ways.  So what does belonging look like?


Lynnette and her team of APIA au pairs in Arizona at their annual community service project “Feed My Starving Children”.

Celebrating Earth Day in Virginia is Dominique with her team of volunteers at Potomac Overlook to remove invasive plants. They learned about birds of prey that have been rescued in Virginia and discovered what snakes live in the area!

Several of the Southern Maryland au pairs and their leader, Cynthia, working on their Community Service project, Sending Smiles! They made 63 cards for chronic and seriously ill children.  They also had a lesson on Planting Seeds with Children and learned about planting sunflowers. Every au pair went home with a packet of sunflower seeds to plant with their host kids.
Together we really are stronger.  #inclusivity=love
