Cultural Exchange Program and Two Years of Education in the U.S.A

        The cultural exchange program with an education in the U.S.A. is a collaboration between Thai International Education (TIE) the representative, and Au Pair Care Organization in witch its headquarter is based in San Francisco, California, the United States. The organization selects those who have passion and interest in taking care of children as well as staying with American family as a Child caretaker. In this case, he or she will earn a salary and an opportunity to learn American culture as compensations.

        The program is not designed for job seeker but a project that is under the control of American government to legally permit an  exchange of cultures via Au Pair. In doing so, since there is a quota that limits the number of Education ( TIE ) will be in charge of selecting applicants with interests, based on quality and personality.

        Au Pair is a French word derived from Latin which means a domestic assistant from a foreign country. In this case, one will join an Au Pair program to give a workforce as a child caretaker with an exchange of salary and a place to stay. Nonetheless, it is often that an Au Pair is seen as a member of family, and that results in a good living condition and friendly environment. However, applicants who have been accepted for Au Pair will have to embrace numbers of requirements such as an ability to adapt to American cultures, passion and patience for their role, and a willingness to abide by the rules as an Au Pair child taker.
