Self Defense Class

Last night our Au Pairs were able to go to the Fairfax County Criminal Justice Training Academy for a self defense class with a great Officer.

The program was based on realistic, common sense, safety precautions/practices, and strategies we can implement to stay safe and avoid confrontations. The officer highlighted day to day activities, and some simple precautions we can take to minimize being identified as a potential target.

We also discussed strategies and possible options (both verbal and physical) to reduce the possibility of injury in the event of a physical confrontation.

Everyone had a great time and learned many new tricks to stay safe!

Annual Holiday Party

This week we all met for our Annual Au Pair Holiday Party.  Every au pair was asked to bring a favorite holiday dish that is served in her country.

We all had a great time and got to try many different treats from all around the world.

Approximately 300 Au Pairs from all around the DC area and their 20 Community Counselors gathered at the National Zoo early Sunday to participate in our DC Regional Scavenger Hunt at the National Zoo!

It was an incredible day! Sun was shining, temperatures were great, the zoo was decorated for Halloween…

A wonderful day for Au Pairs and Counselors alike!
