Jobs for Teens and Other Ways
to Make Money
From Deborah Fowles
Having Your Own Business Is an Option
If you're a teen and you'd like a little spending money or want
to save money for college, and your allowance just isn't cutting
it, a part-time job may be the answer. Many teen jobs aren't
advertised, so don't hesitate to call or visit local businesses
and ask if there are any openings.
Businesses that often employ teenagers include:
Child care centers
Fast food places
Newspapers (delivery routes)
Parks and pools (lifeguarding)
Golf courses (caddying)
You can also make money without working for someone else. Start your own part-time business. Here are a few ideas:
Tutor a fellow classmate in one of your best subjects
Mow lawns in summer, shovel walks and driveways in winter
Pet sit for neighbors on vacation or walk dogs
Assist with gardening or lawn care (mowing, weeding)
Type school papers for other students
Use your computer expertise to help other students or adults
Be a mother's helper or nanny for a busy mom
Plant a garden and sell your produce to neighbors
Sell baked goods to neighbors or at a local farmers market
Start your own DJ business
Be a mother's helper or part-time nanny
Make baked goods and sell them at a local farmers' market.
Type up a flyer about your services and distribute copies to houses in your neighborhood or surrounding area.
