Happy International Au Pair Day

Happy International Au Pair Day

Finally the day we have been waiting for so long has come and the au pair community around the world is celebrating the first International Au Pair Day in history. Many agencies have organised celebrations, parties, picnics for au pairs.

24 November 2019 marks the 50th Anniversary of the release of the “European Agreement on au pair placements” by the Council of Europe in 1969.

For the first time an official set of rules and regulations was defined and established in many European countries. This European agreement serves as the basis for European and other programmes worldwide to define the au pair´s and host family’s duties and rights. 

By celebrating this day we hope to…

  • raise the profile and visibility of au pairs, and legal au pair programs, around the world.
  • recognise and thank au pairs for what they do for host families and their children and for the part they play in fostering global understanding.
  • unite the au pair community and establish 24 November as a recognised day of annual au pair celebrations.

International Au Pair Day is an initiative of IAPA The International Au Pair Association and was presented at IAPA´s Annual General Meeting in Luxembourg in March 2019.
