Support in your home country
Our dedicated partner agencies that we work with will support you throughout the entire application and guide you through the matching process. You will attend a personal interview with one of our local interviewers who will also assist you in obtaining your J-1 Exchange visitor visa and Visa Sponsorship. Many of our interviewers have been au pairs, and have lots of first-hand experience and advice that they will share with you. We work closely with all of our interviewers and international partners to ensure your application and interview process runs as smoothly as possible. Someone is there to help you every step of the way!
Support in the USA
Our support structure in the USA is there for you at all times as an Au Pair in America. Our head office staff in Stamford Connecticut, and our dedicated local community counselors are there to ensure your year in the USA is the best time of your life.
Wherever you are placed in the USA you will be part of a cluster of other au pairs living nearby. There will be a local Au Pair in America representative located in the community known as a community counselor. The community counselor is there to provide support in your cluster for you and your host family, acting as a mentor to you during your entire year as an au pair. Your community counselor interviews host families to make sure they are suitable for the program, welcomes you to the local area when you arrive, holds monthly meetings and arranges social activities and events for all the au pairs in your cluster, advises you on choosing college courses and maintains regular contact with you as a caring mentor.
Au Pair in America is available for any of your questions or concerns throughout your au pair experience. In addition to your community counselor you can always reach out to staff at the Au Pair in America office.
We provide 24-hour emergency assistance for urgent situations.
