What do Local Coordinators do?
Interview Host Families
As an LC, you will inspect au pair accommodations and help screen American host families before they host an au pair in their home. You will interview the family to review program rules and expectations prior to arrival.
Prep for success
LCs provide individualized support to set each placement up for success. You will provide families guidance on their household guide and educate participants on program philosophies, regulations, and best practices.
You will also confirm the safe arrival of the au pair via video call within 48 hours of arrival followed by providing an orientation in the home within the first 2 weeks. Help the au pair get acclimated in the community and answer common questions.
As an LC, you will plan and host fun, engaging meetings for au pairs in your community each month. You will become a tourist in your own community, providing opportunities for au pairs to volunteer, learn and explore their local area.
LCs help monitor the health, safety, and welfare of au pairs in the program. They provide ongoing support to families and au pairs through monthly check-ins and provide additional guidance as needed. In some cases, conflict resolution support may be needed under the guidance of a regional manager.
Spread the word
LCs may choose to earn compensation through word-of-mouth referrals. This can be telling your friends about the LC role or educating families in your community about the program
