So many of our au pairs have such a fantastic experience during their first year that they choose to stay on in the US as an au pair for longer. If you’re an au pair on one of our programs already, then you can extend your stay upon successful completion of your first 12 months.
You may continue your stay with your current host family or be considered for placement with another host family for an additional 6, 9 or 12 month term. Before being offered the opportunity to extend, you must meet all the program guidelines, including the educational requirements.
Why Extend your stay?
- Have the opportunity to continue your studies - You will be expected to continue the educational component of the program. For au pairs and Extraordinaire au pairs, your host family will pay up to US$250 for a 6 month extension and US$500 for a longer extension.
- Further improve your English
- Enjoy another year in the US - You can either stay on with your current host family or explore a different part of America by matching with a different family. Extending your stay gives you the opportunity to visit the places you may not have had time to visit during your first year.
