Au Pair in America



Applications are accepted all year round, as placements are not season specific.


An Au Pair is an assistant from a foreign country working for, and living as part of, a host family. As an Au Pair, you 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 often leads to lasting memories and an unforgettable journey.

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 and sheltered environment.
