Do you love children? Would you like to spend a year in the U.S.? Consider becoming an au pair. You will live and work as a trusted member of an American family and get a real taste of life in the U.S.
Get ready for a fun, challenging, and life-changing year as an au pair in the United States. From the time you arrive at your orientation in New York City, to the moment you say goodbye to your host family, you’ll be fully immersed in American life and culture. You’ll enjoy a close relationship with your host family and the children in your care while making friends with fellow au pairs and Americans. Plus, you’ll be able to take advantage of once-in-a lifetime educational and travel opportunities.
“Being an au pair has changed me on so many levels that sometimes I can hardly recognize myself. You grow in one year more than you had in a lifetime. Your family will always have a piece of you in them and you'll always have a piece of them with you.” - Priscilla from Brazil
“This is one of the greatest experiences I have had in my life. I learned important things: I learned to live together with other people and with myself. I learned to be independent. Thanks Au Pair USA for giving me this opportunity! And if someone is thinking about the program: Go ahead!! And enjoy the year because it goes really, really fast and every day you have new things to learn!" -- Celia from Spain

This is my second month working as an aupair in the USA with InterExchange and I can already say that I made the right decision. InterExchange were very efficient in getting my placement and everything organised and I am very satisfied with all the experience so far.
I would recommend working as an au pair in the USA with InterExchange to anyone.
I went to America as an au pair twice and both times with InterExchange. It’s an amazing experience and I really felt like i was in good hands. They help you with your documents as well as a great au pair training program in NYC.
I have been working as au pair for over a year and it has been such an unforgetable experience. I have made close friends and been on so many adventures. By applying to be an au pair in the US with InterExchange you will get to travel in America and get a job you will love.
Being a live in au pair has enabled me to experience true American culture whilst being part of a new family.

I have been working as an AuPair in the United States for two years and it has been such an amazing experience. I have been lucky to have the opportunity to travel and see more of American which is such an amazing country. My host family have also been fantastic with me. I couldn't recommend this company/program highly enough. Just apply, you won't regret your decision!!
I have spent a year of growth and self discovery au pairing in the United States with InterExchange. I was placed in the suburbs of NY with an amazing family. Being an au pair is not an easy job but spending your weekends exploring and your free moments planning vacations, it's definitely worth it. A year abroad has brought me so much personal growth and independence and I would recommend it to almost anyone. Interexchange is the best agency by far. They really do care about your well-being and offer the right kind of support before and during your time abroad.
