My name is Vanessa Pleshar-Bolger and I am very excited to be joining InterExchange Au Pair USA as a Local Coordinator. I have lived in the Chicago area all of my life and currently reside in Oak Park with my husband and two children. I have traveled to South Africa, several countries in Europe, and lived in Japan for a year teaching English to children and adults.
InterExchange Au Pair USA has caring, experienced and responsive Local Coordinators available to answer your questions, provide matching assistance, and provide guidance and support to both you and your au pair.
All InterExchange au pairs are pre-screened and interviewed before arriving to the U.S. Once they arrive they go through a comprehensive training program where they learn CPR, First Aid and child development. InterExchange Au Pair USA sponsors each au pair’s J-1 Visa which allows the au pair to legally work in the U.S. for 12 months. The au pair program can also be extended for up to 12 additional months. Once you join our program, I will guide you throughout the process of selecting and welcoming your au pair!
We're here to provide support and answer any questions you may have about the program. Applying is easy with our online application, but please don’t hesitate to send us an email if you have questions about hosting an au pair.
