Travel the World with Au Pair International!

Have you always wanted to wander the streets of Paris? Or trek through the Outback? Perhaps you would like to explore the rich culture of Spain. At Au Pair International, we offer an exciting au air program for U.S. and Canadian applicants to live abroad as an au pair with a host family in their chosen country.

Au pair comes from the French meaning on par or equal. As an au pair, you will live with a host family abroad and provide live-in childcare. Aside from your duties around the house, you will have the opportunity to takes classes, make new friends, and travel around a new and exciting country.

  • Varying program lengths (some countries offer short-term programs that are 90 days or less).
