Why Cultural Care Au Pair?
Between our large selection of host families across the USA and the extensive training, preparation and support we provide, it’s no wonder so many au pairs choose Cultural Care. As a participant of our programme, you’re entitled to special compensation and benefits. Discover the benefits of being a Cultural Care au pair, such as studying at a local university, paid time off, travel opportunities and more!
Global Support: Cultural Care will provide comprehensive, global support through every phase of your training, preparation, application completion and visa process.
Room and Board: Your host family will provide room and meals as well as a weekly stipend of $195.75 – this is simply pocket money for you!
Time Off: You are entitled to 2 weeks of paid, off-duty holiday – your J-1 visa also allows you a 30-day grace period at the end of your year, during which you can travel the USA.
Travel arrangements: Airfare and travel arrangements to and from your host family are covered – and you’ll start the programme with a five-day training course just outside of New York City.
Educational opportunities: As an au pair, you will take classes of your choice at a local university or college – your host family will contribute up to $500 per year towards your studies
