Being an au pair involves a relationship between you and a host family. You'll help them with childcare and become a member of the family. Host families provide a private room, meals, a stipend (AUD $800-1360/month), and an end-of-program bonus. You must be a U.S. citizen between 18-30 in order to be eligible for this program.
After your initial 6-month placement you'll be able to travel independently or extend for another 6-months (with the same family or a new one) if you prefer. There is no cost for extending your program.
