Many dream of travelling to the United States as an Au Pair. We will show you how to make that dream come true! To be a legal Au Pair in the USA you need to apply to the Aupairfect which is the partner of many US Government designated Au Pair agencies. Only approved agencies can provide you with a J-1 Cultural Exchange Visitor Visa.
The United States is a country that many people dream about. The American culture has a big influence in the world today and most of us have already watched teen TV shows or Hollywood movies, listened to American music, dreamed of seeing the skyscrapers of New York, and so on. I also have often heard that Americans are friendly and positive so let’s discover that by yourself. Moreover, if you enjoy learning foreign languages, what could be a better way to improve your English than to live in an English-speaking country for a while?
The Au Pair program is an international cultural exchange that gives the possibility to young people to spend some time abroad, learn more about a different culture, improve their skills in a foreign language in exchange for help with duties related to childcare. The term “au pair” from French means “on equal terms”, signifying that Au Pair and Host Family treat each other as equals. While the Au Pair can live abroad in an economical way, the Host Family gets the benefit of flexible, affordable live-in child care.
An Au Pair is a young person (female or male) between 18 and 26 years old who stays with a local Host Family, learns their language and culture in exchange for help with childcare responsibilities. An Au Pair gets accommodation, regular meals and pocket money for personal expenses. Read about the pros and cons of Au Pair experience to find out if it is the right program for you.
