Meet Your Global Neighbor!
A community-based Global Awareness program has been bringing the world to young children through interactive
presentations in schools for 3 years. Au Pair in America au pairs have been teaching children about their country and
culture while having a valuable volunteer experience in the community.
Awarenss is reaching out and meeting children in other venues. In Connecticut, two German au pairs are participating
on a weekly basis in The Little Linguist program at the local library. The au pairs share language, songs and
stories about their country to the pre-schoolers who delight in learning how to count to 10 in German!
the au pairs visited a Brownie group with a presentation focused on the Christmas season in Germany. They enjoyed teaching
the children how to decorate gingerbread hosues prepared in advance by the au pairs. Their presentation incorporated
song, food and traditions and the children also enjoyed looking at a display of German photos. A host mother attending
the presentation said "I hope these children realize how fortunate they are to experience this".
