WHO CAN APPLY
Expand your mind through childcare, study and travel with Au Pair in America
To be a great Au Pair you must be motivated, open-minded and of course love spending time with children! The term ‘au pair’ means ‘on par’ or equal, which is exactly what you will be – an equal member of your host family. Au pairs are international visitors who, on a J-1 Visitor Exchange visa, live with an American host family of their choice for a minimum of 12 months whilst caring for their children.
If you meet all of our program requirements, you can register on our website and start your online application today! If you do not quite meet all of these program requirements, then contact your local Au Pair in America interviewer to discuss what you need to do in order to apply.
