Be a champion!

Many Au Pairs ask about how to have a successful Au Pair year in America?

You will be a winner in many ways! family rulesI want to share this story about Echo and life. “A son and his father were walking on the mountains.

Then the father explains: “People call this ECHO, but really this is LIFE.Go Au Pair volunteering at FRUA-10 Be a champion and win a successful Au Pair year!
