The Au Pair program is a cultural exchange for young people, craving to see the world and get to know different cultures. Thus, it is expected that the Au Pair is a young person who hasn’t started a family yet and has neither children nor a spouse.
The applicants should also be of a different nationality than the Italian one and know the Italian language to an extent that allows them to communicate with the Host Family and local people.
