Benefits of Being an Au Pair in America

Becoming an au pair in America is unlike any other experience you’ll have. It combines your love for kids with cultural exchange, travel, learning and friendship. As an AuPairCare au pair, you'll earn a minimum stipend with room and board provided, and you'll have the opportunity to travel across the United States and make new friends from around the globe.

Using what you learn on program will help further your career by improving your English skills and spending time studying at an American University or College.

With AuPairCare, you’ll enjoy many benefits during your time on program:

  • Flight to and from the United States
  • Travel and accident insurance package for 12 months
  • Au Pair Academy childcare training and introduction to America
  • A private bedroom in your family's home
  • J-1 Visa Sponsorship
  • 30 days to travel the country at the end of your program
  • 1 1/2 free days per week, plus 10 days of paid vacation during your program year
  • Up to $500 USD in education money to attend college classes (you must complete 6 credits or equivalent)
  • Earn a weekly stipend during your year
  • 24 hour emergency line and continuous support from your local AuPairCare Area Director
  • Opportunity to extend your program for another 6, 9 or 12 months

Ready for Adventure in
The United States

Your American experience starts with your virtual Academy training, where you will learn about life in the United States, and virtual events where you’ll meet other au pairs. Once your program begins, you'll spend your free time exploring your new surroundings with new friends! AuPairCare hosts monthly events online and in-person to help you meet new friends and experience each other's culture.

Many au pairs also go on vacations with their host families and friends throughout the year. Once your program is completed, you'll have the opportunity to travel in the U.S. for up to 30 days!
