As an Elite Member of The World Youth Student and Educational (WYSE) Travel Confederation since last year, AuPairWorld took the chance to further broaden its international network. “The annual conference is a great way to get to know people from the industry from all over the world,” says Ann-Kristin Cohrs, Managing Director of AuPairWorld.

“We are are aiming to expand and diversify our professional network in the youth and educational travel sector so as to be able to make au pairing an even more attractive option for young people. In addition, the basic idea of au pairing as a form of cultural exchange should be promoted and developed in cooperation with WYSE as a strong partner with global reach."

AuPairWorld has thus welcomed the establishment of the new position Sector Manager Cultural Exchange at WYSE. In this new position, Polina Jones introduced herself to the au pair industry at a round table discussion during the conference in Montreal. "The session was very informative," commented Cohrs. "We're looking forward to further cooperation."
