Aupairation is an au pair agency recently established by three friends and coworkers.
Interaction among people from various countries is really intriguing to us.
Spreading the international Au pair programs all over the South Balkans is such a case.
Au pair (french) means couple, on equal terms.
An au pair is a person between the age of 18 and 28 years old, living abroad with a family so he/she can learn that country΄s language, the way of life and its culture. Au pairs are treated as family members and become intergrated into the hosting family. They also receive some pocket money every week. In exchange, they help the family with childcare and light housework. An au pair is definitely not a housewife or a professional nanny.
The main goal of the program is to learn or improve a foreign language and to experience the cultural exchange by living with a family in a country abroad.
The Au Pair programs is a quite old and well known institution in Europe as well as in the United States of America.
