What our au pairs say

  • Chelsea, UK


    Being an au pair truly has been the best experience of my life! I’m more patient, more confident and I know what I want, and I always go out there and get it, no matter what. I achieved so many of my goals whilst in America and gained so much more along the way in the form of friendships, adventures and the most wonderful second family I could have ever asked for.

  • Abbie, UK


    I’m so grateful for this programme, for everything it’s given to me: a second home, a second family, lifelong friendships and me. It’s given me, myself, my true self, someone who is outgoing, independent and courageous. Never in a million years did I expect to do something like this, to be someone bold enough, brave enough to leave my home and everything I ever knew, but I did.

  • Rachel, UK


    In just a year, my time in America has taught me so much. Being immersed in another culture has influenced the way I see the world and changed many of my views. Simultaneously, it has brought me some amazing friendships, endless memories and so much happiness. I am so grateful for my second family, and being able to share so many of their milestones. This crazy adventure has shaped me and I will be going home with clearer ideas of who I am and what I want in life.
