Pros

Get to work in the US.
Get to meet lots of new people.
Get to take care of beautiful and nice children that will love you as a family member.
Get to know American culture.

Cons

Sometimes you miss your family and friends back in home, but other than that, I don't see any more cons.

    The experience overall teaches you how to learn living far from home and to be responsible for another human life

    Pros

    - This experience opened my mind to other cultures, not just the american
    - Teached me how to live with a different family with different rules and different habits.
    - Increased my sense of responsibility since another human being was dependant on my work.
    - Offered me the opportunity to assist to schools that normally would have being very costly to attend
    - Gave me the chance to travel to many places and cities
    - I have met very interesting people, made friends and learn from others situations

    Cons

    - It is very easy to get misunderstandings with your host family when you don´t have a good communication.
    - It is practically a matter of "good luck" whether you get a nice family since you never know how things can turn out after a while with the family you chose to live with

    Advice to Management

    a way to avoid misunderstandings between the au pair and the family is to have a closer relation between the person responsible of the area with the au pairs to serve as conciliator between this two parties before misunderstandings arise.

    Pros

    By far the best experience of my life!

    - Opportunity to expand cultural knowledge
    - Getting to know people from all over the world
    - Many travel opportunities (with or without the host-family)
    - Get to know who you really are!

    Cons

    It is very exciting to be part of the program but the pay isn't the best. Au pairs are very under-paid and they are always struggling, but considering the young age, I think this also teaches us how to make smart financial decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! The orientation is a great way to welcome girls from all over the world.
