In case you still need proof that working as an au pair is becoming more popular, here you go. The International Au Pair and Host family day is coming up this weekend. The event is in its second year and is hosted by AuPairCare, one of the first au pair agencies to be approved by the U.S. Department of State and in operation since 1989.
The Int’l Au Pair and Host Family Day is a free event that takes place in roughly one hundred towns and cities around the United States. It is designed as a fun, community event for both host families and their au pairs and serves as an introduction to those new to au pairing. I love anything that promotes cultural exchange and convenient, afforable childcare for parents, so any event that shows the fun and benefit of being (or hosting) an au pair gets my thumbs up.
Has anyone here taken part in an International Au Pair and Host Family event? If so, please tell us about it!
