Host Mom 4thTimeLucky?! shared a really interesting and comprehensive recommendation for assessing Fair Pay for Au Pairs in unregulated countries (aka countries without fully-regulated Au Pair programs).
The document was originally written and shared by Anja Kapelski. Anja runs Au Pair-Assist, an Australian Au Pair placement agency.
As 4thTimeLucky?! writes:
The document tries to convey a realistic picture of aupairing and expectations. It’s something that all agencies should hand out and discuss with their aupairs before matching – to revive the aupair spirit – on both sides!
It’s hard to share the 5 page document itself in the post, so I’ve added it here as a downloadable (pdf) file. It’s really well done, and well worth reading!
If you download it, please share it only with direct attribution to Anja and Au Pair-Assist.
What do you think?
Thanks so much to 4thTimeLucky?! and Au Pair-Assist!
