Only a limited number of applications are accepted each year. You are only permitted to come to the United States once in this program, and it is the only legal means of becoming a summer au pair in the United States. To be sure of a place, you need to get your application completed as early as possible.

What will this cost me? 

At the moment:
1. You can be a summer aupair only once.
2. A standard aupair cannot go back as a summer aupair.
3. A summer  aupair cannot go back as a standard  aupair.
(It is possible that the above 1 - 3 will change in the future.)
4. A summer aupair cannot change status to a standard  aupair once the visa has been issued. 
5. If you do not get a family match and no visa documents have been issued you can change status to a normal aupair.    

You can apply at any time of the year but the final date for completed applications to reach our office is the 28th February for placement the following May. The earlier you put in your application the better your chance of getting a place.
