Summer jobs for younger teens include helping their families and people in their neighborhood with babysitting, pet care, or yard work to earn some extra cash. Older teens can apply at restaurants, grocery stores, shops, offices, plant nurseries, farms, movie theatres, amusement parks, local pools, and libraries to find jobs that are more interesting and challenging and can earn them a higher wage.

Teens typically don’t have a lot of free time during the school year but could fill some of their Summer holidays working and earning some money.

Not only does this give them opportunities to buy the things they would like to have, but it also helps them find out what kind of work they’re good at and that they enjoy.

It also teaches them new skills that they might need in future jobs.

The younger the child you’re looking after, the more responsibility your teen will have. If the kids are a bit older, once they’re in bed, the teenager can generally watch TV or read or study, as long as they’re awake while the parents are out.

Although babysitting isn’t a full-time job, there is the benefit that you can earn some extra cash whilst not having to work a full job schedule. Plus you can actually do this all year round, and not just in Summer.
Pet Care

Another job that is very well suited to teens is pet care. Your teen could offer to walk neighbors dogs and even wash them or spend time playing with them, while the owners are working or out.
Deliver Newspapers

Many teens remember their newspaper route. Even though many people are now reading their news online,
