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

As a Cultural Care au pair, you take on many different roles. You embark on a gap year that can change your life, traveling to the USA, living with an American host family and caring for 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 minimum 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
