We'll be in touch to tell you more about the programme and how to get started on your au pair journey. 

When you choose an au pair agency like Cultural Care, you embark on a year that can change your life. You travel to the USA and live with an American host family while you take care of their children. You are more than just a babysitter—you are like a big sister or a big brother. And you are much more than just a tourist—you experience the USA like a local and have many opportunities to travel around the country.

When you become an au pair, you belong to two homes, and no longer just one. You gain a second family and make friends from around the world!

Perks of the program:

  • Receive free room and board, and earn a weekly stipend of $195.75
  • Explore your neighborhood and travel in your free time
  • Take a full month to travel at the end of your year and a 2-week paid vacation
  • Get up to $500 towards an accredited course in the US
  • Start with a week at the au pair training school near New York City

To become an au pair, you must be able to answer “yes” to the following questions:

  • Age

    Are you between the ages of 18 and 26 years old?

  • Experience

    Do you love children and have at least 200 hours of experience caring for them?

  • Education

    Have you completed (or are you about to complete) secondary school or equivalent?
