Wow, here at AuPairCare we're blown away by the amazing summer adventures from au pairs across the United States! We launched the first Summer Adventures Video Contest in the summer of 2021 with the goal of showcasing inspirational summertime travel and exchange experiences of our participants. In addition to living with American host families, au pairs immerse themselves in a rich exchange experience – meeting new people, travelling the country, and partaking in new cultural traditions. Au pairs really demonstrated how travelling across the U.S. goes hand-in-hand with the cultural exchange aspect that's at the heart of our au pair program! Au pairs shared glimpses into their life-changing unique experiences in America from visiting a Buddhist temple in Hawaii to walking through history in Boston, showing that travelling across America is not only fun but possible during challenging times! And now, onto our winners!
Congratulations to Maria from Brazil for being one of our winners for the Summer Adventures Video Contest! This wonderful video showcases that being an au pair provides so many opportunities to have fun and new experiences.
"This video is a compilation of my au pair moments: happy moments, hard moments, homesick moments, but all of those remind me one thing: never give up on your dreams!" Check out Maria's video on Facebook below!
Congratulations to au pair Ingrid from Colombia for being one of our winners for the Summer Adventures Video Contest! Her awesome video shows all the fun that comes with being an au pair!
"Life as an au pair: activities, laughs, friends, travel ... why not show it all? In the first part I show the day-to-day of my au pair life; activities such as painting, cooking, walking, cycling, and going to the park. On the other hand, some places where I have traveled - Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Miami, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Niagara Falls, Washington DC, & Boston. I've been to 15 states and want more!"
Thank you to all that participated in this year’s summer contest! Stay tuned as your video may be featured throughout the year!
