InterExchange Goal

In a world of instantaneous connection, people sometimes forget the importance of face-to-face, day-to-day interaction. At InterExchange, we believe that by allowing people to live and work side-by-side with people in another country, we can increase global understanding.

Everyone who participates in our program—whether a student, a young professional, an employer, or a family—comes away with a greater connection to the global community, and a better understanding of the world’s rich cultural diversity.

Cultural Care Au Pair ImageAbout Cultural Care Au Pair

"Cultural Care Au Pair’s childcare and cultural exchange program offers families affordable childcare customized to their needs with a unique international perspective. Your au pair lives with you as a member of your family while providing up to 45 hours of childcare each week. Our dedicated Cultural Care offices in over 20 countries take care of screening and training each au pair — helping her obtain her visa, providing her insurance, and transporting her to your family’s home. You simply need to start the matching process to find the au pair best suited for your family.

What is it like to host an au pair?

Because Cultural Care Au Pair is as much a cultural exchange program as it is a childcare program, we refer to each Cultural Care family as a host family. As a host family, you will welcome an au pair into your home as an extended family member and include her in activities and meals. In exchange your family benefits from a caring and dedicated caregiver who can offer your family so much more than other forms of childcare

You and your children benefit

Host parents choose au pair childcare because it's affordable and flexible — and because their children benefit from live-in, one-to-one care." ... more

Go Au Pair logoImage Go Au Pair
Image Go Au PairThe Au Pair program was launched in 1989 by the U.S. Department of State. It consists of bringing foreign nationals between the ages of 18-26 to live with a family in the United States, take university credits and overall improve their English skills, while offering child care and performing light housekeeping.

Because the Au Pair program is carefully regulated by the U.S. Department of State, Au Pair and Host Family candidates must work with a designated sponsor of the Au Pair Program. These sponsors are responsible for background screening and training, travel, visas and managing Au Pair and Host Families interactions. Go Au Pair was one of the original six Au Pair sponsor agencies designated by the U.S. Department of State.

At our headquarters office, our Placement Coordinators meticulously review the preferences and qualifications of each Au Pair to begin sending Host Families information about numerous Au Pair candidates who best fit the Host Families’ needs. They also manage the Au Pair application process and once a match has been confirmed, your Placement Coordinator will begin working on the Au Pair’s arrival process.

Go Au Pair has been providing quality, child care for over 27 years. Beginning as a nanny company in 1984, Go Au Pair soon expanded to include Au Pairs and was one of the original Au Pair Program sponsors designated by the department of State in 1989. Go Au Pair has representatives in over 50 countries on 6 different continents and in over 65 American cities with headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah.

As an Au Pair agency, Go Au Pair provides families affordable child care solutions through various Au Pair programs. Au Pair child care is a cultural exchange program with a child care component. Parents can give their children the opportunity to learn from another culture and language, while receiving personalized care." ... more

"Au Pair Foundation’s mission is to provide all of our program participants with a quality cross-cultural experience that will enhance their understanding and acceptance of other cultures and foster life-long friendship in addition to providing quality child care to American families and educational opportunities to international au pairs.

Through the Au Pair Foundation Program, we hope to give American families the opportunity to learn more about world cultures by placing intelligent people from other countries who display positive attitudes and a willingness to be ambassadors for their home countries. Au pairs will be able to teach their host families about life in their countries and share the qualities of themselves and their culture throughout the program year. We feel that the host families, au pairs and the communities surrounding these families benefit from this exchange as the au pair integrates into daily American life.

Through this program, we also hope that the au pair will return to their home country and share with family, friends and countrymen a positive and realistic impression of life in America, the American people, and our uniquely blended and ever changing culture. ... more
