Au Pair USA
As an au pair, your main responsibility is to take care of the children of your host family. Your job scope includes, but is not limited to, preparing meals for the kids, sending them to school or activities they participate in, playing with them, teaching and guiding them in their schoolwork if necessary, or driving them to play dates. Au pairs are required to do light house chores but only those that revolve around the children like doing their laundry, making their beds, cleaning up the table after they eat, and cooking for them if necessary.
You may be asked to work the maximum of 45 hours per week but no more than 10 hours per day for 5.5 days. You will get one-and-a-half day off per week and a full weekend off (Friday evening to Monday morning) once a month. You are entitled to 2 weeks paid vacation and an optional 30-day travel period at the end of your program.
The Au Pair USA program is a great opportunity to experience American culture and lifestyle, as you will stay with an American family in most cases. There are many chances to meet not just Americans but friends from all over the world. Each year, many Europeans, Asians and other internationals participate in this program.
There are also many opportunities to visit famous landmarks across various American states. The benefits you can gain from this program are boundless.
