What is a Demi Pair?

A Demi pair program was created to give everyone the opportunity to assist an Australian family for 20 hours of unpaid work per week in exchange for free room and meals.

This is a great opportunity for you to improve your English, to experience Australian life within an Australian family, to save money on accommodation and board while studying, and gain further experience working with children.
