We bring experience, enthusiasm and expertise to ensure a high-quality program year after year. In fact, many of our worldwide staff, community counsellors, orientation trainers and host families have been with us since the program began.
Striving to create the best cultural exchange experience for our au pairs and our host families. Over 4000 Au pairs from more than 60 countries travel to America every year with our program.
Au Pair in America is a division of the American Institute of Foreign Study (AIFS). Applicants and their families are welcome to drop in to meet the friendly team at our Sydney CBD centre which serves as the head office of AIFS in Australia. As well as meet with our local interviewers across Australia.
All of our host families are carefully and rigorously screened as required by Federal Regulations. All host families are subject to background checks and personal interviews conducted in the family home to ensure a safe environment for our au pairs.
“My time as an Au pair was one of the best experiences in my life. and I now have two beautiful second families , plus friends from all over the world. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for APIA."
