Imagine yourself situated in the heart of Europe, in the midst of a rich culture in the leading economy of the continent. You’ll be living with a host family in Germany, caring for their children and discovering daily life while developing professional skills for today’s globalised world. After an unforgettable experience, participants return home with a suitcase full of new skill sets, memories and friendships that may last a lifetime.
The Au Pair program is designed as a win-win for both you and your host family. It is neither just a cheap holiday for you nor cheap childcare for the family. You will become a family member, enjoying all the rights and privileges of family life - you’ll also share the obligations and chores that go with it.
But, in your free time, you’ll have the opportunity to meet friends, do sports and go out.
Plus, you’ll earn Euros and be provided with support for German language classes.
You’ll work for up to 30 hours per week doing childcare and light housework (or maybe up to 40 hours per week for additional pay). You may be required to babysit for a couple of evenings per week. But you’ll also have a free day each week, two days of paid vacation per month, free room and board and your airfares covered when you fulfil your 12 month commitment!
