Hi my name is Paula, I'm from Colombia, and right now I live in Park City, Utah; Which is one of the most beautiful cities that you can be, I love the view, the mountains and the ski's resorts ... It has been an amazing cultural experience... I've been here for about a month and a half. Since I got here my host family has been warm and friendly always taking care of what I can need.... On the other hand, I've met people from different parts of the world letting me to know other cultures and their customs; besides that, I've been in beautiful places that always offers a great view and now I'm taking skiing lessons which I found a very cool activity to do.... Right now I'm looking forward to gain experiences, friends, knowledge and all the great things that au pair program has to offer :D
My name is Marizeth Uys, I am an au pair from South Africa. I have been in the States for 7 months and I am having the time of my life!! I live in Salt Lake City, right next to the Capitol building. My family is great and they are really going above and beyond to give me the best experience I can get. I take care of three boys 6, 4, 10months and I cannot wait to see them everyday, I love spending time with them and being a part of they're lives! They take me to see places, I get to travel and they support me in choices and decisions I have to make!
I am so happy that I did this through Go Au Pair, they are definitely the best agency that you can choose!! they are always there to support you when you need them, they answer all the questions you have (which is a lot of questions) and they are willing to help you out if you need help! Our LAR is supportive, caring and she definitely does a lot for the group!
I have had so many opportunities to see parts of the States, to meet new people, make friends and be a part of a great family!
What I am thankful for the most is that I can say I HAVE TWO FAMILIES, NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE CAN SAY THAT!
Hi, everyone! My name is Svitlana, I’m 22 and I’m an au-pair. I came from Ukraine and now live in Woods Cross city, Utah. I have been living here only for two month, but I have many things I want to tell about this program and my experience! Au-pair program it’s a really great-great chance for young people to see another country, people, to study language, to learn new culture and traditions, to try new food (most of time very yummy), to make friends from all over the world and get such a good experience being with children and grow up by yourself.
it was scary and exciting the same time, which family you will join to. I am with Sahm family now and I’ve had feeling that it’s my family after our first video chat. This family is really awesome!! I’m taking care of two boys (twins) – 1,5 years and a girl – 4,5 years! These children are so cute!!! They make me happy and smiling all the time! They are already part of my life and I love them! My host parents are very nice, friendly, understanding people, always close to help! I haven’t had a homesick with this family yet, and, guess, I won’t! I don’t feel that I’m alone here! I’m very thankful that have this family in my live! I think we will have a great year together!!!
I’m happy that I choose this program and Go Au-pair agency. It is easy to do with this agency! They are always with me, from the beginning, support me all the time, give tips and important information. And if I don’t know something, they are available to help. And I want to say thanks to our LAR, for helping and for doing our au-pair activities! It’s the best way to make friends and spend your leisure time.
I wanna say to everyone, who is thinking about this program, just do it!
Hi, my name is Sonia and I am an aupair from Spain. Since I took the decision to become to an aupair in the United States (I was really scared about everything), Go Aupair helped me in all and they were available for all my doubts. I am taking care of two children, a boy (8) and a girl (5). I am 22 years old and I am living in Salt Lake City, UT. I recommend to everybody this experience because it's really amazing to meet people from all over the world, exchange cultures, go to the university, living in a host American family... About my family I have to say I LOVE them and I won't never forget them, they are so nice with me and I am feeling like one more member of the family. I love my friends and I love do things together but I love shopping and the US is the best for this!
I love the place where I live, my neighborhood is really close to the canyon and it's wonderful the mountain, the colors in fall, the snow in winter (I came from Valencia, near to the beach in Spain but I got used to so easy!)...
So, I think that this experience is an amazing opportunity to go abroad and live your life. I can't imagine when my hostchildren will be in my age now and it's really beautiful feeling like you have other family in other country.

My name is Polina, and I am a Local Area Representative (LAR) for Go Au Pair in Philadelphia, Montgomery and Bucks County, & part of NJ. I have been working as a LAR for the past 5 years, and I would like to share my experience.
I am originally from Ukraine, and my personal experience of adjusting to the life in the United States together with experience of working as a counselor for many years has given me great insight into my work as a LAR. I feel firsthand the importance for new Au Pairs feeling my support, welcoming other Au Pairs and making friends on facebook even before they left their home. We have a supporting circle of friends in the cluster and some traditions in helping new Au Pairs.
As a LAR, I always ask myself what else I can do to bring a rich cultural exchange experience to this circle – volunteering with my Au Pairs at the Philadelphia Marathon or celebrating Chinese New Year (there are 6 Au Pairs from China in my cluster). Spending time with young unique individuals and learning about their culture and traditions is always a pleasure.
In my recent trip to Go Au Pair office in Utah, I met a dedicated team that works very hard to prevent any issues. I enjoy my job as a Local Area Representative with Go Au Pair because I believe that Go Au Pair has the best customer service, they are always willing to help and solve any issues on the spot. One call away, you can speak with a real person who is looking forward to helping you.
The Go Au Pair agency’s philosophy is keeping their Au Pairs happy. Happy Au Pairs mean happy children and happy families. That is why in 2013 the agency started a unique program called “Au Pair Sis” that supports Au Pairs. Last month, Go Au Pair also sent a special Christmas present with a greeting card to each Au Pair from the agency!
As a LAR for Go Au Pair I feel that working with the Go Au Pair agency’s team, my host families and Au Pairs is very rewarding experience. I think that it has been a great experience for the host families from my area as well. Recently, six families from twenty host families nominated their Au Pairs for IAPA’s Au Pair of the Year Award for their excellent work as an Au Pair! Happy Au Pairs make happy Go Au Pairs’ families for sure!
My name is Denise, I'm from Germany and I turned 19 during my year in the US. I was an au pair in Indianapolis (IN) in 2013 and I took care of two girls, who are two and five years old.
My decision to be an au pair was the best decision I made in my life so far. I learned so many things about myself and about other people. I became more independent, mature and improved my English skills a lot. I recommend a year abroad to everyone!
I gained a new family by being an au pair. My host family is amazing and I loved them from day one. My host parents are like my aunt and uncle to me now and my girls are like my little sisters or cousins. I love them with all my heart and I know that they will be a part of my life forever. I decided to extend my year as an au pair, but with a new host family. You may wonder why I didn't stay with my current host family, when I love them so much. They really wanted me to stay with them, but I've seen everything in Indiana already and I wanted to experience something new in my second year. Me and my host family decided that looking for a new family would be the best for me. Like that I can use my time as an au pair to the fullest and live somewhere new. It was a really hard decision and for the longest time I regret, not extending with my current family but then I finally matched with a second host family and they seem just as great. I will move to Santa Barbara, CA in about a week and spend my second year on the west coast.
I met a lot of amazing people during my first year and something like that is priceless! I love to speak English and it is awesome to be able to say that you are fluent in English.
Of course being an au pair can also be very exhausting. If you think, you'll be spending a year of vacation in America, you are wrong. You are working and kids can be a challenge. It's not like babysitting, you are basically being a mom/dad! Even though you're only working 45 hours a week and not 24/7 you are around your kids and your family all the time, since you are living with them. I didn't mind hanging out with my family even though I wasn't working, at all. I had dinner with them nearly every night and I spent a lot of time especially with my host mom. I went on vacation with them and we would go visit family all the time. But if I had planned something with friends, they always respected that. My host parents didn't treat me like an employee, but like a part of their family.
Go AuPair is a great agency! I never had any trouble. My LAR was super nice and always there for me. If I had any questions or needed something I could immediately reach out to someone. It's not a giant agency which means there are not as many families and au pairs as with other agencies, but in my opinion that makes it easier to match with a family.
I hope my review gives you an idea of how it is to be an au pair. My experiences influenced my life forever and I don't want to miss any of them.
Good luck to every future au pair, don't be afraid, you won't regret it!
Finding myself divorced with 2 elementary school-aged children and having a demanding career in Lexington, Kentucky presented a significant child-care challenge! Initially, I hired a full-time college student at the local university to help with the children thinking that would be sufficient. Unfortunately, I was wrong! My child care requirements were virtually ignored. If my 6 year old son wanted 3 Popsicles, that's what he got. So I began exploring other child-care options. Several friends of mine on the West Coast had recommended finding an Au Pair, so I began a search. Being in Lexington, I soon discovered that there were very few agencies that represented our city, but Go Au Pair was one.
The matching process was so simple. I filled out an on-line profile with my requirements and added some photos and I was matching with potential au pairs within an hour!
I highly recommend the au pair program. Our Au Pair is just another member of our family! She has been such a positive influence on the children and is extremely responsible. She teaches them things about her home country, while also taking the very best care of them when I can't be there. She gets them up in the morning and sees them off to school, helps with homework, takes them to dental or doctor appointments, shuttles them to their extra-curricular activities and helps with their night-time routines if I am working late. She goes everywhere we go - church, vacation, to the lake on the weekends in the summer, whatever we are doing, she's just an extension of our family.
Go Au Pair is a very reputable agency. They are always available if we have any questions about anything at all - just very helpful in every way. I have enjoyed working with them and highly recommend them if you are looking for an au pair agency.
We have been very blessed with the addition of an au pair to our family! I never have to worry about the welfare of my children when I am working, which is a huge relief to me! We are very thankful to have her!
My name is Jessica

Its just what you as a person makes of your time here , we have an amazing Lar who will help you with anything and will go out her way to have the right answers and help you found the things you need for any circumstance..

Hi, my name is Judy, I 'm from China, 21 years old. I'm taking care of a 18-month boy. He is very smart and cute, I like him even though he is naughty sometimes. Being an aupair in America, will be a good and precious experience for me, because I learn much more different life style and improve my English. My host family is very nice, I'm kind of quite sometimes, they try to share almost everything that is funny and important in daily life, they treat me sincerely. I know it's hard to be a real family together, but we are like friends, we helped each other. So in the following 5 months, we will cherish the time together, I will miss them! that's for sure!!
My name is Bree Ramirez, I'm from Mexico and I'm an Au pair, living with a host family at US. I'm here since August and I'm very happy... it has been a pretty good experience so far. The family is awesome and they all treat me as a part of their family. My host mom talk a little of spanish and I'm helping to the kids to learn my language. I think that was the most important thing for me while we -my host family and I- were making the match: I needed to practice my english and they needed someone to practice their spanish, so we had a win-win situation... also the guys are just lovely! They are making me feel very glad from decide to come here to work with them.
Here I like to visit different places and know more about the state where I'm living now, which is Kentucky, also I like to meet new friends: girls from another countries whom are also Au pair as me, and people at the school.
this is a really good chance to learn about the american culture and also improve your skills with their language..
