The best USA work abroad experience you'll find ğŸ‡ºğŸ‡¸

America is a huge place to explore – New York, Broadway, Boston, New Orleans, Disneyland, the Grand Canyon, Yosemite National Park, Hollywood and sunny California, Colorado and Texas are just a few of the famous sites you could be checking out.

You'll be able to watch baseball, basketball and gridiron football, enjoy great food and shopping plus make heaps of new friends from all over the world (everyone loves an Aussie accent).

Host families are carefully selected, with lovely homes from luxury apartments in Manhattan to large Texas ranch estates. Our au pair host families come from all over the USA, but mostly in the big cities and towns, East and West coasts where you can join networks of other au pairs to easily make new friends in New York, California, Seattle, Boston, Dallas, Florida, Colorado Springs

We offer you the opportunity to have a quality American au pair job fully organised in writing before you leave home and will guide you through the entire process - application, family interviews, visa, and flights - so you have full peace of mind before you leave Australia.
