How To Become An Au Pair

Travel abroad and live like a local for 2 to 12 months. And get paid!

An Au Pair takes care of the children in a carefully screened host family and also tutors them in English during scheduled hours. These scheduled hours are agreed upon between the au pair and host family in advance. Au Pairs help the children with their homework and assist in keeping children’s rooms and play areas clean. They prepare snacks and meals for the children and drop them off or pick them up from school or activities.

With The Cultural Exchange Project, your host family is screened carefully. In addition, you have the ultimate safety net … local coordinators you can call on anytime. All of this is to ensure you have a safe, comfortable environment and that your host family is a suitable host. Receive a clear set of guidelines and expectations that are set with your host family. Through monthly meetups, make new friends with other au pairs during your time abroad. Don't take your chances on a host family that has not undergone any screening. The Cultural Exchange Project provides a supportive network of agencies and other au pairs nearby.

You'll have so much fun living in your new community. Also, you have a unique opportunity to learn or improve another language!

It won’t take long for the locals to start recognizing you and for you to consider your host community your new, temporary home.  It’s real and authentic. Wake up each day and feel a connection.
