Sunday October 21 the New York and Connecticut Au Pair in America Community Counselors hosted a NYC Scavenger Hunt for 250 au pairs!
Everyone met on the steps of the main NYC Library for the send off. They spent about 3 hours searching for the items on the list, snapping pictures of themselves in places all over the City. Each team had 6 au pairs.
When they returned to the library, the Counselors were ready with candy bars for each of them, raffle tickets for those wearing their APIA T-Shirts, and scoring teams to tally their lists.
The top 3 teams won cash prizes donated by the Counselors. Everyone had fun and learned a lot about NYC. We hope they return often to NYC to learn more about this great City.
Community Counselors meeting while Au Pairs do the Scavenger Hunt
Young women from countries all around the world come to the USA as au pairs with Au Pair in America every year. They live with a host family, take care of children up to 45 hours a week, learn our culture and share theirs with us.
