As an Au Pair you will experience the real USA by living with a family of your choice whilst caring for their children. You will take part in the day-to-day routine of your host family, whilst experiencing life in the USA and participating in family activities. Au Pairs become fully-fledged family members, sharing a cultural exchange experience that leads to lasting memories and an unforgettable journey.

Why Au Pair in America?

If you are looking for a year abroad in the USA, experiencing the true American way of life and learning more about yourself, this is a fantastic way to travel overseas in a secure environment. Life as an au pair in America gives you so much more than a passing glimpse into the USA. It’s a unique opportunity to absorb the American culture through the rewarding experience of caring for American children. To take part you must have childcare experience and a passion for working with children. You will be able to study a course of your choice at an American community college as part of your experience. So if you have previously worked as an au pair, teacher, teaching assistant, nursery assistant, childminder or looked after children in other ways – this is your chance to spend at least a year in the USA!
