Making & Celebrating Women's History

Making & Celebrating Women's History

March is Women's History Month and this month and every month, AuPairCare is inspired by the strong, resilient, and diverse group of women who are part of the AuPairCare community. One of those women is Minnesota State Senator and AuPairCare host mom Julia Coleman, who hosted an event for host families and greater Minneapolis-St. Paul au pair group in March to celebrate her swearing-in as a State Senator.

At this event, the group had the opportunity to tour the historic Capitol building with a Minnesota State Historical Society guide. It was an eye-opening experience for host families and au pairs as they learned about the three branches of American government, experienced democracy in action while visiting the three chambers, and witnessed public testimony in the rotunda. It was many host families’ first visit to the state Capitol since childhood, and they were happy to participate in a civics lesson with their own children.

For the au pairs, it was a chance to learn more about the country they live in and to gain a better understanding of American government. Au pair Laura from Colombia was so inspired by the experience that she vowed to visit the capitol building in Bogota when she returned home.

Senator Coleman noted that her au pair, Yennifer from Colombia, made it possible for her to represent her constituency and be the mother she wants to be to her three young sons. This is just one example of how women in the AuPairCare community enrich each other's lives by helping one another and lifting each other up.

From host moms to au pairs to Area Directors, AuPairCare celebrates the women whose courage has allowed them to create global connections, cross-cultural and language boundaries, and broaden their horizons through community involvement and civic action.
