The Au Pair program in almost each country has specific age requirements for participants. In most of the countries this age limit is between 17 and 30 years. If you have not attained full age by the time you want to go abroad your parents have to sign the Au Pair contract for you.

If you do not meet age requirements
Au Pair Agencies accept only applicants who fulfil all the conditions and fit in the requested age range. If you are searching for a Host Family
through an online matching agency and you do not need a visa to travel to the host country, it is up to you and the family whether to accept the cooperation. In this case you won't be considered as an Au Pair program participant, but make sure that your agreement is legal in the host country.
