Making New Friends During Your Program
Moving to a new country where you do not comfortably speak the language or know anyone can be incredibly intimidating. Below are some places au pairs can meet new people to make friends!
Facebook – Au Pair Groups
There are a bunch of Facebook groups out there devoted to Au Pairs or International students. All you have to do is search ‘Au Pair’, join the group, and then you can read other people’s posts and create your own posts!
Ask Your Host Family
Ask your host parents if they have friends who also have an au pair or if they know anyone your age that you can connect with.
Volunteering is a great way to get the most out of your experience in the U.S.A. while making new friends and helping others. It’s a great opportunity to connect with others in your community who have the same interests.
