Visit places you might not have had the chance to travel to during your first year. Stay with your family or match with a new one and discover a whole new experience. So many au pairs have such a wonderful experience during their first year that very often they decide to stay on for longer in the US. In order to extend, you must have successfully completed 12 months with your host family and you must meet all the program guidelines, which includes all education components.
You have the option to extend for a further 6, 9 or 12 months. You can stay with your current host family or be considered for a placement with a new family elsewhere if you wish to experience living in a different part of America. When you extend, you will continue the educational component of the program. Those on the Au Pair or Au Pair Extraordinaire program will receive a study allowance of up to US$250 for a 6-month extension and up to US$500 for a longer extension with their host family.
Extend your stay and your American adventure! Those on the EduCare in America program will receive a study allowance of up to US$500 for a 6-month extension and up to US$1000 for a longer extension with their host family.
Do you wake up wishing you were back in the USA living the American dream? If you have already taken part in a US au pair program then you can return for a second Au pair in America experience! In order to apply again, you must have already successfully completed 12+ months on a US Au pair program and you must have lived outside of the USA for at least 2 years.
You can either return to your previous host family if they are still on our program or you can select a new family in a whole new location. As a returning applicant, you can select any of our program options if you meet the program requirements.
Just imagine, you could be seeing the bright lights of New York City or the sandy white beaches of Miami again! Always wanted to stroll through Central Park, go camping in the Grand Canyon or see the Niagara Falls? This is your opportunity to do all of that and more!
You now know all the places that you did not get the chance to visit the first time around, so now is your chance to tick off all those items on your US bucket list. What are you waiting for? Become an Au pair in America - again!
