Become a Local Coordinator

Local Coordinators are the first layer of support for au pairs and families during their participation in the au pair program. Make a difference fostering global connections and raising cultural awareness in your community.

Our Local Coordinator Network is a diverse, collaborative group of individuals from various professional backgrounds across the United States.

What do Local Coordinators do?

Interview Host Families

As an LC, you will inspect au pair accommodations and help screen American host families before they host an au pair in their home. You will interview the family to review program rules and expectations prior to arrival. 

Prep for success

LCs provide individualized support to set each placement up for success. You will provide families guidance on their household guide and educate participants on program philosophies, regulations, and best practices.

Facilitate orientation

You will also confirm the safe arrival of the au pair via video call within 48 hours of arrival followed by providing an orientation in the home within the first 2 weeks. Help the au pair get acclimated in the community and answer common questions.

Host meetings

As an LC, you will plan and host fun, engaging meetings for au pairs in your community each month. You will become a tourist in your own community, providing opportunities for au pairs to volunteer, learn and explore their local area.

Provide support

LCs help monitor the health, safety, and welfare of au pairs in the program. They provide ongoing support to families and au pairs through monthly check-ins and provide additional guidance as needed. In some cases, conflict resolution support may be needed under the guidance of a regional manager.

Spread the word

LCs may choose to earn compensation through word-of-mouth referrals. This can be telling your friends about the LC role or educating families in your community about the program
