The Communication Workshop is one of the highlights of the week. This teacher instructed workshop allows the au pairs to discuss communication with both host families and their host children. Running through many scenarios, the goal is to give au pairs the confidence they need when addressing sensitive situations such as curfew or receiving payment as well as tools to keep communication open between their host family and themselves. It is consistently rated as one of the most valued lessons of the week, as these discussions can be very difficult to initiate. The conversation skills they learn can not only be applied to situations as an au pair, but can certainly be counted as life skills that may be used in many sensitive situations.
