2011 Sojourner Douglas Weekend courses.

One of the choices available to our au pairs to complete their education component while in the US is the option to take weekend courses at accredited and APIA approved colleges. I have had lots of au pairs take the Sojourner Douglass weekend courses and they have been very pleased.  They have told me that the instructors and staff are helpful and professional, the courses are interesting and the facilities are nice.  Below you will find information on their upcoming course offerings.
