The Au Pair Exchange Program was established in 1986. Although Au Pair is an employee, she/he has to be treated like a member of the family.
The Au Pair Program is a Department of State cultural exchange visitor program. Only designated sponsors, like Go Au Pair, can administer the Au Pair Program to legally bring Au Pairs into the U.S. and ensure all rule and regulations are enforced.
Host family has to be committed to cultural exchange and be willing to welcome an au pair as a family member. Read THE AU PAIR EXCHANGE PROGRAM BROCHURE for more information.
Go Au Pair recruits Au Pairs from over 60 different countries. With more than 25 years of experience, Go Au Pair is one of the oldest and most experienced Au Pair programs. Au Pairs are screened, personally interviewed and meet regulatory requirements to qualify for the J1 visa Au Pair program. These regulations include background checks, minimum High School education, minimum hours of childcare experience, verified childcare references and more. All Au Pairs are required to have a minimum number of years of childcare experience. The Au Pair becomes a valued addition to the family- equal, trustworthy and loving family member.
