Learning to Live Your American Dream

The American Dreams Au Pair Weekend program has been offered at National Louis University (NLU) since 2008 and we have hosted thousands of students on our Chicago and Tampa campuses.  At this time, National Louis University will no longer be hosting the American Dreams classes.  However, the same high-quality classes will continue to be offered in both cities through other accredited schools (see all details and links below). We want to thank the entire Au Pair Community who have supported this program for so long. We have enjoyed serving students from over seventy different countries over the years!

In Chicago, Au Pair classes will be offered beginning in January 2016 through Roosevelt University, just three blocks south of the NLU campus on Michigan Avenue. 

In Tampa, Au Pair classes will be offered beginning in December 2015 through Hillsborough Community College at their downtown campus on Davis Island.

To see all dates and details and register now for both of these cities as well as find information about other Au Pair Weekend program locations, please see the new one-stop website where you can find everything the American Dreams program is offering: www.aupairclasses.org
