The Au Pair programme
The Cultural Care Au Pair programme in America is a cultural exchange experience through childcare. For a full year, with the opportunity to extend for up to two years, you will have the opportunity to work with children, study and travel as an au pair in the USA. You will become part of a carefully selected American family and help care for their children, all while experiencing real life in the USA. The programme is regulated by the U.S. Department of State which offers the only legal way for au pairs to travel to the USA. Au pairs enter the USA on J-1 visas. If you are curious about living overseas, Cultural Care Au Pair might be just what you're looking for.
To be a Cultural Care au pair, you must be between 18 and 26 years old and have experience taking care of children. You will need to have completed secondary school, with a valid driver’s license and no criminal background. If you love kids, this could be your chance to expand your horizons and have the adventure of a lifetime.
Cultural exchange is at the root of the au pair programme. By becoming a valued member of your host family and sharing in their daily lives you will have a unique chance to learn about American life. Your host family will depend on you for responsible childcare, and you’ll rely on each other to make it a truly intercultural experience.
Not only will you make new friends and gain valuable international work experience, there are fantastic benefits that being an au pair with Cultural Care offers. You will have the opportunity to take classes at an American college and learn about American culture and lifestyle. You will grow in independence and maturity. You will be making a difference to the lives of your host children. You will also have the chance to travel in the USA. All of this while earning a salary, including two weeks paid holiday.
