The Au Pair program: Learn and Earn.

 The Au Pair program is a rewarding cultural exchange program for young people looking to get the chance to earn money and learn new experience in a family setting. The Au Pair program is known abroad as the “Learn and Earn”program.

Au Pairs come to the US from around the world. Go Au Pair recruits Au Pairs from over 60 different countries.

Many young people consider taking a gap year and becoming  Au Pairs in America. They can learn a new country, culture, improve language skills and earn money. They  also have the benefit of living with a Host Families, so they are not completely alone.

In many countries, speaking good English is expected for many jobs. Learning a language in a full-time language course plus the cost of full board accommodation is very expensive.

The Au Pair program is very affordable as the program usually covers language classes and living expenses. The time in language classes is combined with daily conversations at home and  communications with their new friends in English.

The Au Pair program is  incredibly rewarding.  Au Pairs earn money and also gain a new family and friends,  language skills and priceless life experience.

    Most of their time au pairs are spending caring for children , not taking courses or conversing in English with their new friends. It is hard work that requires experience, genuine love for children, and a certain kind of personality in order to make an au pair successful and to make this experience work for her and her host family. It is not a cheap opportunity to make some bucks and learn English – it is also very hard work, and many of the girls who came here inspired by such rosy dreams and don’t have the right attitude or love for children, also complain that it is hard and underpaid work.
    As a host mother, I think there is not a deficit of au pair candidates. The most challenging part is to find the right au pair candidate.

      Hi Anna,
      Thank you for your comment. It is very good point, Au Pairs work is not easy one, Au Pairs usually have three or more kids to take care. It is an opportunity to come here without paying big money but with the right attitude – working hard. Nothing is free in this world. Work hard. Earn money. Learn English, culture and country.

      Today a new family called me and said that they want to match with an Au Pair right away, after the first interview. When I suggested to speak with the candidate again, the father said that the Au Pair won the interview after she answered the question why does she want to come to the USA. She said she is coming to work hard and earn money and she likes working with kids. She convinced the family.
