Upon submission of your application and payment of your program deposit of $250, a Stir Program Coordinator will be in contact to get you started on your adventure. Then an Au Pair registration and a profile for host family matching will be completed by you. Upon receipt of your Au Pair registration, a Stir Program Coordinator will review and confirm you qualify for the program based on the additional information you provide.  The balance of the program fee will then be due, and paid before you can view host family online profiles.
