Become a CHI Au Pair Partner

CHI has run cultural exchange programs since 1980! We are a nonprofit organization fully devoted to the cause of international understanding, diversity awareness and goodwill through exchange opportunities, such as the Au Pair program. CHI Au Pair is one of the 15 government designated sponsors of the Au Pair J-1 visa program. Our team firmly believes CHI Au Pair provides a wonderful experience, allowing young people from around the world to be seen as a family member, rather than a participant of an exchange program.

We would love to learn more about your organization and to provide you with additional information about our organization, our department and our team. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you wish to discuss a potential partnership.

Why Trust CHI

For over 36 years, CHI has been developing exchange programs. Why? CHI wants businesses, hosting families and young Americans to share their values, their love and their freedom with foreigners. CHI also wants foreigners to share their culture, values, skills and life experiences with Americans. We believe this to be the best way to promote trust and understanding among nations and to build a more prosperous, peaceful world.
