I had a great time in Nashville by attending Au Pair USA Conference. For three days, we discussed J-1 program issues, au pair updates, and building a great network.
There were International Cooperators like us from all over the world, and there were local coordinators who are assisting host families and au pairs everyday. It was an excellent opportunity to meet with local coordinators across the U.S., hearing about how my Japanese au pairs are doing.
Within InterExchange Au Pair USA, Japan ranked the 5th place for arrivals in 2017. Compare to all Au Pair arrivals, Japan is not even ranked in top 10. So, it shows that if you need a Japanese au pair, working with InterExchange will increase a chance to meet with an excellent au pair for you.
Au Pair Japanese Connection will do our very best to promote the U.S. Au Pair program to Japanese young people and increase the number of arrivals even more for the year 2018.
