Being an au pair is an amazing life-changing experience.
Like anything of lasting value, the au pair program also requires a small upfront investment. Don't worry! It's just a nominal fee associated with applying for and placing you in the GreatAuPair USA program.
Before you get nervous about cost, we'll let you in on a little secret: you can offset the expense by earning over US $10,000 during your year in the US. That's right! The au pair program is one of the few types of J-1 programs where you can live with an American family and earn money. You will receive a weekly stipend from your host family that can total over US $10,000 a year.
Before you can start earning money, you need to spend some money. We've all been 18 to 26 before, and we understand where you are in life. As such we keep our program fees as low as possible.
