In the summer there is usually seasonal work at horse stables cleaning stalls.
My son was able to lifeguard at that age, after passing the training class. If he is good at something, he could also teach or tutor younger kids - things like tennis, swimming, soccer, etc. Good luck.
Yard work for neighbors??
at 14.5, most places wont hire him cause hes too young, but he COULD volunteer at local animal shelters, boys and girls club or places like that, and get expierence, so when he is 16, he can get a job easier
He can start his own lawn mowing business. Once he gets his regulars they will want him every 2 weeks and he can make pretty good money. It will be a weekend thing. The kids where I live charge for a small front yard $10.00 backyard $20 and if the front yard is big $20. It will be a every 2 week job that he will have and its money coming in for him.
Look up the laws in your state. I know there are some states that allow them to work certain hours. I worked at a Chic-Fil-A when I was 15. Some states will go as young as 14 1/2, but it is usually only in food service jobs or jobs at gas stations doing limited things. Call a local fast food restaurant and ask them. If you've already addressed this, sorry, I didn't read the replies.
There's always yardwork...raking leaves, mowing lawns, etc. or perhaps at an animal shelter or grocery store as a sacker?? (I'm not sure what the minimum age is for that). I bet some people would be willing to pay to get someone else do their "dirty jobs"... There's also pet sitting while people are on vacation, or other things to do with pets. (dog walking, etc.)
