Dear SOLO, 

thank you for your question. 

When applying to the USA you always need to use an agency. We recommend using the agencies on the state designated sponsor list: https://j1visa.state.gov/sponsors/sponsor-by-country/?program=all

You should choose your country and the au pair program. After that you can see those agencies that have representatives in your country. 

I already tried this with your home country Madagascar and couldn't get any results. I then checked the list to see which agencies are helping out au pair candidates from other African countries and chose Expert Au Pair. There are others as well, so you can check yourself and choose the ones you want to contact. You can see the whole list for the state designated agencies from here. Please choose the au pair for the program first, so you will get only the au pair agencies on your list. 

I would check the agency websites first, and if I think they seem okay, then call or email them to get more details. 

I hope this helps you further!
