Au Pair Abroad

Au Pair Programme

An Au Pair is a young girl or boy aged between 18 and 26 who has a working relationship with a welcoming host family. This relationship should benefit both parties – the Au Pair and the host family. The au pair from abroad helps the host family with childcare and light cleaning and in exchange the host family provides a home and sustenance for the Au Pair. An Au Pair doesn’t just work for a host family; they become a real part of the family, building a valuable relationship that often lasts long after the program has ended.

Big advantage:

Host families provide au pairs with a safe home, a private room, meals, and a stipend, as well as share their culture, lifestyle and tradition. Outside of the family, au pairs have opportunities to take classes, make new friends and travel in their spare time.

Our aim:

  • We want to provide young people with the opportunity to live abroad, get to know a different culture so as to gain more exposure and grow their personality and knowledge.

Our offer:

  • Placement of au pairs especially from Zimbabwe to host families abroad.
  • We actively look after our au pairs during the whole au pair period
  • When problems and misunderstandings occur, we help to find the optimal solution

We place our au pairs in Germany and Austria.
