InterExchange Au Pair USA is the first U.S. Department of State (www.State.gov) designated Au Pair
agency to offer the Summer Au Pair program. InterExchange has been sponsoring the 12-month program
since 1986. The InterExchange Au Pair USA program recruits Au Pairs from over 40 countries and places
them with Host Families in over 90 communities in 22 states. Roughly 1,000 families per year take part
in the Au Pair USA full year program.
