Your program fee of
$795 $395 (if you apply by May 30) will provide you with a host family placement, orientation, and ongoing support. Your host family will provide you with a private room, meals, a living stipend, and program completion bonus!
You'll be paid a weekly stipend. These range between NZD $180 and $295 in exchange for 30-45 hours of child care plus one night of babysitting per week.
Weekly time off (two days per week), vacation time, and a completion bonus are also provided.
The program also provides a bank account (opened on your behalf), as well as a SIM card with a local phone number.
Going with an agency provides you with the peace and mind of a vetted family, constant support before and after, and an arrival orientation to get you on your feet.
Weekly stipends range between NZD $180 and $295 and you will receive a completion bonus equal to NZD $10 multiplied by the number of weeks of your program (e.g. NZD $500 for a 50-week program), all without the major living expenses of rent or food!
