Become an Au Pair

An au pair is a young adult, between the ages of 18 and 26, who travels to the United States on a J-1 Visitor Exchange Visa to provide childcare in exchange for the experience to live with and become part of an American family. Au pairs provide their host families with childcare, up to 45 hours a week, and help with child related household duties, transporting children to school and activities, and more.

Agent Au Pair, a U.S. Department of State Designated Au Pair Program, promotes educational and cultural exchange between nations through our inter-cultural au pair program. Our program provides American families with live-in childcare and allows our au pairs to experience American education, life, and culture in an affordable international education program. Agent Au Pair has created a unique value proposition for au pairs which is based upon providing them with greater long-term career and educational value than any other organization in the field. Read this brochure to learn why Agent Au Pair is The World’s Most Innovative Au Pair Program.

Taking care of young children requires maturity, hard work and patience.  Your childcare duties will be challenging, but will also be rewarding, as you will help your host children to develop and grow.  The benefits of being an au pair include:

  • Experience American life and culture
  • Receive a weekly financial stipend (based on your program)
  • A private bedroom with a pre-screened host family
  • Study in the USA at an accredited institution
  • Gain valuable international travel and global experience
  • Improve your English language skills
  • Become more independent and self-confident
  • Make new friends from around the world
  • Exclusive Agent Au Pair Benefits

In order to become an au pair, you must meet the U.S. Department of State Requirements to be qualified for the au pair program. The rules and regulations are the same for all Au Pair Programs in the United States.
