How to register

  1. Join our platform for connecting Au Pairs and Catholic families.  
  2. Research and get at least 2 sponsorships : the network of Au Pair and families gathered by FIDEOJOY is based on trust and shared faith. It is the sponsorship of members already present on the network or the website's administrators who will allow you to access the network. Any behaviour contrary to the spirit of the network will lead to the exclusion of the involved member. 
  3. Complete your profile : the more complete it is, the more you will increase your chances of finding the solution that suits you!
  4. Access the search engine that will allow you to find the family that corresponds to your expectations.  
  5. Send a connection request to the family of your choice and wait for its agreement (or respond to a request that has been made to you).  
  6. Get the family's contact details by settling the FIDEOJOY commission : your payment - low compared to prices implemented by other language organizations - allows the platform and its founders to carry on their mission.

Practical information

The process of matching host families and au pairs can take up to a few weeks. FIDEOJOY recommends starting your search for a host family 2 to 3 months before the expected departure date, allowing more time if travelling to a country that requires a VISA (e.g. The United States of America). 

This will ensure a successful experience.

Furthermore, you are going to leave for several weeks or months : make sure that you share the same vision of your mission with the family or families you have selected so that your experience will be as successful as possible.


FIDEOJOY connects Catholic families, Au pairs and students in a warm catholic environment, offering exchanges, language stays and Au Pair expériences. On this platform, you can now create your profile and search for sponsors. In a second step, we will give you access to the search so that you can find the family to realize an Au Pair experience!

Being part of an certified agency will also allow you to obtain a J1 visa. First of all, you will have an interview with the agency, then they will require specific documents:

Once these documents have been delivered to the agency and your visa has been confirmed, you will be given a 5-day orientation course on arrival in the USA before you start with the host family.

We are not approved for visa formalities, a visit to an agency will be required.

2. Become an Au Pair in UK

The scope of mobility, in particular for young people, has been reduced since 1 January. Thus, stays to carry out work placements or "au pair" are not authorised under the current regulations. Any such stay is likely to be subject to a refusal of entry to the UK. 

We recommend that you check the UK entry requirements for your country. Please ask your local British embassy or visit the British Foreign Office website.

3. Being an Au Pair in Europe does not require any special formalities.

We wish you the best luck on you research!
