Are your teens working this summer?

Posted by   + Show Post

Both of my nephews will be working at my friends family business this summer before football practice starts in early August. 

Do your teens have a summer job lined up or will they be working in another capacity?

My DD almost 16 will be working as a lifeguard and swim instructor all summer.

My oldest is 13 and I don't have any thing lined up for him yet.

We're moving to a different state this summer, so a job wouldn't be possible. His job will be packing up his stuff!

DS is too young here (plus summer is only 6 weeks) 

Though in the 10 days he is in Germany he does help out at his uncles pharmacy

My Aunt is 15 years old. While be 16 years old July 3rd. My mom has been pushing her to get a summer job. I don't think she will have time. She os going into her junior year of highschool next year. She has a 4.0 grade point average and is on the honor society. She is in all honors and prep classes for college. She made jv dance team this year. She got excepted onto the school newspaper. She is also taking extra classes online this summer hecause she wants to graduate early with honors. I saw here dance schedule and pratice starts june 4th and is 3 times a week for the whole summer and then towards the end of summer they have their week long cheer camp. I think mom needs to lay off on making her get a job.

My DD is only 12 so no paying job, but she will be working in the form of community service at the local Wildlife refuge, in town, and at the elderly neighbors down the road. She also will be working at a local fisheree held in July with the 4-h Ambassadors and prepairing for the county fair. 

My 17yo step-DD volunteers at an Autistic Day Camp.

My ds is 15 and begging to work. However, its very hard for him to find a job in our city because the majority of businesses want someone 16 or older. I have encouraged him to inquire at rec centers or libraries. I even told him to create flyers offering to help the elderly in the neighborhood. Any other suggestions?

My 14 and 12 yr olds will be helping their dad out on the farm. Probably just 2 or 3 hours a per day.
