Au Pairing around the World
Au pair jobs overseas are the perfect programmes for those who love working with children while travelling. Au pair means “on par” or “equal”. You live with an overseas host family and become part of their daily routine and family life and in return you care for your host family’s children. Participating in one of the au pair programmes that YDP offers, means that you are part of one of the biggest cultural exchange programmes in the world. You get to travel and experience life in another country while enjoying one of our au pair jobs overseas. YDP only works with internationally accredited au pair agencies and members of IAPA (International Au Pair Association) with whom YDP has been a proud member for the past 12 years (and the only South African au pair agency). Au Pairing is one of the most popular overseas jobs and will help you create memories that will last a lifetime.
Au Pair in the USA
Everyone has a dream to travel the world and see places that they’ve only been able to read about. Au pair jobs in the USA offer you the chance to fulfil your dream to travel while enabling you to become part of a new family and experience a new culture for a year. American families also view this experience as a way for them to ‘travel’ without having to go anywhere. Being an au pair is not only about working abroad while working for a family but being involved in a one year work exchange programme – an exchange of cultures, languages and friendship.
Au Pair in the Netherlands
Netherlands, the country known for its beautiful tulips and the colour orange. With Dutch being the primary language, Afrikaans speaking au pairs have found living and working in the Netherlands an easy step. Au pairing in the Netherlands is your gateway to the rest of Europe, with Paris only being a two hour train journey from Amsterdam. The Dutch are friendly and caring and have loved having South Africans as au pairs in their homes. This particular working holiday is one of the most popular au pair jobs overseas for South Africans.
