COURSES FILL UP QUICKLY, SO REGISTER EARLY!
Tampa Bay is a large natural harbor and estuary connected to the Gulf of Mexico on the west central coast of Florida, boasting warm, tropical climates all year long. This makes Tampa the perfect location for APW's Explore our Aquatic Environment course. Come see why students have been enjoying Au Pair Weekend's Tampa classes since 2014, where you will learn about Tampa's diverse ecological environment. A year abroad in the USA is never complete without a trip to Florida!
