This week, join Au Pair in America as we celebrate International Education Week (IEW) along with the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Department of Education and thousands of teachers, students, host families, au pairs, schools and individuals across the United States and the world.
The educational benefits of au pair exchange improve the lives of all participants, especially the children in the care of international au pairs. Au pairs provide child care with a cultural focus that helps American children learn about languages, places and cultures from countries all around the world – while the au pairs themselves learn about the American way of life.
Throughout the year, but especially this week, we encourage our program participants to share stories about what they have learned, why international education is important and how it makes a difference in their lives. Please take a moment to share your highlights on Facebook and Twitter. Use the hashtags #IEW2016 and #aupairinamerica to join the celebration.
For thirty years, Au Pair in America has been at the forefront of au pair exchange, providing opportunities for young adults from around the world to study in the U.S., experience life in an American family and share a mutually rewarding and culturally enriching experience.
