Hosting an Au Pair is a rewarding and enriching cultural experience for the entire family. You and your children will have the opportunity to embrace another culture right in your own home. Your family’s view of the world will expand through sharing language, culture and customs.
Why CHI Au Pair
CHI’s Au Pairs undergo a thorough screening process, including personal interviews, previous childcare experience evaluation, psychometric testing, criminal background checks and confirmed character reference checks.
CHI’s Au Pairs love children and are excited to share their cultural heritage with their host family and to become a part of the daily family life.
Why Trust CHI
CHI believes in the power of cultural exchange. It’s the best way to promote trust and understanding among nations and to build a more peaceful, prosperous world.
CHI wants Americans and exchange visitors to come together and share culture, values, skills and life experiences.
We have been opening doors to the world through quality exchange programs since 1980 because shared experiences bring people together and bringing people together changes the world.
