Au Pair Program

An Immersive Learning Program in New York City for Au Pairs

Mini-Courses in Diverse and Relevant Topics, Workshops in Language and Skills Development, and Exciting Cultural Experiences in New York City Led by a Team of Dedicated St. Francis College Faculty from Various Disciplines

The SFC Au Pair Program fully meets the requirements of the U.S. State Department in offering the equivalent of six academic credits (80 hours) in two scheduled sessions. It will bring au pairs from all over the U.S. to exciting New York City for an engaging weekend. Au pairs will participate in 24 hours of in-person instruction and activities and 16 hours of online preparation before their arrival for each in-person session. Each session counts for 40 hours. The sessions are not necessarily sequential, and au pairs can enroll in either or both.

Classes will be held on SFC’s new state-of-the-art campus in Downtown Brooklyn, and au pairs will stay in the College’s beautiful residence hall, located in historic Brooklyn Heights, by the Promenade overlooking the skyline of Manhattan.
