Expand your world! Experience American culture first hand by living with an American family and helping to care for their children.

Living with a host family allows you the unique opportunity to intimately experience the day-to-day life of a typical American family. Au pairs receive a weekly stipend for childcare services, as well as an educational allowance to attend university classes.

You will have many opportunities to meet new friends and explore the surroundings of your new American home. You will become independent and grow as an individual as you experience what it is like to live abroad.

Living and working in another country allows you to gain valuable knowledge, skills, and experience, all of which will help you in the future and look great on your resume. Whether you want to move forward with childcare or go into a completely different field, your time in America and proven excellent English skills will take you far.

Being an au pair has other unique advantages as well. You’re not a visitor, you’re a family member. As an au pair, you share your own culture directly with your American family and make a real, lasting, positive difference in a child’s life!

CHI Au Pair USA is an exchange visitor visa sponsoring organization. You can feel confident that you are being sponsored in a legal, respected program.
