Au Pair Course

Sojourner-Douglass College, Division of Professional and Continuing Studies is pleased to offer a weekend course dedicated to the education, training and socialization of Au Pairs in America. The weekend will include coursework in American culture, history, government, family life and personal growth while providing an opportunity to develop new friendships. During an assignment in America, an Au Pair is required to complete the equivalent of six credit hours of course work. To ensure that each participant earns the required credit hours, we offered four continuing education units for each weekend session. In addition each student will be required to do a paper or a project prior to the beginning of the training weekend. The weekend course work plus the paper or project is required to ensure that all credit hour requirements are met.

The Au Pair weekend is offered 6 times a year by Sojourner-Douglass College. The Au Pair is responsible for transportation to and from the course. It is a great way for Au Pairs to receive required credit hours and meet new people. Registration is ongoing. Early registration is encouraged for first selection and added value.

Each weekend session is different, session may include but are not limited to:

Nutrition, American History, American Justice, Psychology, American Culture, History of American Music, Smithsonian System, Entrepreneurship in America, Hospitality Industry, Harlem History, American Family, Educational games, children and poisons, Storytelling through crafts and TOEFL.
