UCLA Au Pair in America Advantage Course

A 19 week online course with UCLA offered only by Au Pair in America!

Au Pair in America is the only au pair organization that allows you the opportunity to study with UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles) through The UCLA Au Pair in America Advantage Course.  We have exclusively partnered with UCLA to create a 19-week American Studies online course for 6 credits. The course has been specially approved by the US Department of State to fulfil the au pair educational requirement. Unlike a typical online course, the blended online format of the course allows our au pairs to study American Studies and have face-to-face contact with their local communities.

As a requirement of the course, au pairs are required to do a Global Awareness presentation, volunteer at a local organization, and participate in historical and cultural activities.

To find out more about this unique and exclusive course, please visit UCLA Extension.  What a great experience, and what a great addition to your resume!
