Lowell will personally meet with and interview prospective Host Families ensuring they meet the regulations set by the Department of State and will help them understand the benefits of hosting an Au Pair. Along with helping Host Families, Lowell will also host activities for Au Pairs in the area, allowing the young international adults a chance to get to know the Providence area, meet other local Au Pairs and share learning experiences.
"Our Local Representatives play a vital role in a Host Family and Au Pair's experience with the Au Pair program," said Tanna Wilson, managing director of goAUPAIR. "We maintain an open line of communication to our corporate office for any Host Family and Au Pair, but our Local Area Representatives add a local element of support and service that is directly related to why goAUPAIR is consistently praised for its great customer service."
The Au Pair Program was established in 1989 by the Department of State to help increase cultural exchange and international relations. An Au Pair is a young adult who comes to the United States to live with a family while providing 45 hours of child care each week in exchange for room and board and a small stipend. goAUPAIR is an Au Pair agency designated by the U.S. Department of State that places qualified and screened Au Pairs with Host Families within across the United States.
