Thanks for your interest in the American Au Pair Program!
If you would love an adventure and are great with children, American Au Pair is right for you.  Agent Au Pair has supported young people who wish to become an au pair in the USA for more than fifteen years. 
Agent Au Pair is a US Department of State designated J-1 Visa Program and the official American partner of AuPair.com.  We have now launched the American Au Pair Program to enable young people from the US to become an Au Pair and experience a different part of the US.  

Requirements to be an American Au Pair include:
➤ Be between the ages of 18 to 26
➤ Be legally qualified to work in the United States
➤ Agree to provide their host family with childcare for a minimum of 3 Months
➤ Adhere to the American Au Pair Program Au Pair Agreement

➤ Complete the Enrichment for All Students: From Foundational Methods to Practical Strategies with Renzulli Learning Course
To care for children under the age of two, au pair candidates must have at least 200 hours of previous childcare experience with children under the age of two.
Taking care of young children requires maturity, hard work and patience.   Your child care 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: 
➤ Receive at least $10 per hour
➤ Gain valuable career experience
➤ Become more independent and self-confident
➤ Make new friends from around the United States and from around the world
➤ A private bedroom with a pre-screened host family
➤ Receive 24x7x365 support from the American Au Pair Program
Au pairs must agree to be placed with their host family for 3, 6, 9, or 12 months. Au pairs can shorten or extend the placement with their host family if both parties mutually agree to extend the partnership.
