What is an Au Pair?

Being an au pair is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore the USA and gain independence.

An au pair lives with an American host family for a year and cares for their children. In exchange, they receive free room and board, a weekly stipend, and opportunities to travel and study in the USA.

Why be an au pair?

  • Cultural exchange: the au pair program is the chance to discover an exciting new culture and for au pairs to share their own.

  • Personal growth: during their year in America, au pairs get to develop the confidence and independence they need to succeed.

  • Travel opportunities: being an au pair also means exploring the USA and creating memories to last a lifetime.

  • Educational development: not only do au pairs naturally improve their English during their stay in the USA, they also get the opportunity to study at an American college.
