At Au Pair in America, we pride ourselves on providing exceptional support to our host families and au pairs. In fact, that outstanding support is just one of the many reasons that Verywell Family named Au Pair in America the Best Overall Au Pair Agency for two years running.
A cornerstone of our support? Each month, our Community Counselors across the United States host a gathering for au pairs in their area.
These events are a chance for au pairs to explore their communities, make friends, and tap into the resources of their Community Counselor.
A recent event outside Bethesda, Maryland showed the power of cultural exchange and the magic of making lifelong friendships. On a brisk October evening, Au Pair in America Community Counselors Victoria Paton and Imelda Farrell hosted dozens of au pairs for “Campfire and S’mores” night at a local nature center.
The au pairs were chatting and enjoying their marshmallow treats, and then, says Victoria, “Imelda suggested they sing – brilliant idea – and the night became amazing!”
Countries represented included Germany, Austria, Poland, Colombia, South Africa, Israel, Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Czech Republic, France, and Mexico. Au Pair in America welcomes au pairs from over 50 different countries each year.
