Work At Home Jobs For Teens

Teens and Students

In a tough economy, these work at home jobs for teens will prove to be educational and lucrative. Work at home is also a great way for parents to guide their teens to an excellent work ethic. Teens and students learn financial responsibility and expand their knowledge for business, economics and mathematic classes.

You will need to get your parent's permission to work in their home, and you will also want them around to help guide you when things go wrong. When children are in your home and under your care, you will want to know what their special needs are. Know if your client has allergies, if they need special medications, and all their contact information (parents home and cell phone numbers and address of their home).

Getting paid is always awesome! Be prepared and ask for a small deposit up front before you give the lessons for the week. You want to make sure you get paid, and you want to make sure they receive a quality lesson that is worth their hard earned money. Determine payment amount and payments dates before you start working, don't be shy!

Good at a subject in school?


Tutoring is a way to make money, but it can also be a great addition to your college entrance application. It is also rewarding to feel like you helped another person build their self esteem by passing classes. Tutoring also boosts your own self esteem by making you feel smart and helpful to others.

What we came up with were a lot of web sites who are telling teens they can work online and they are proving it with checks they receive from paid survey companies and Paypal.

Be aware! They "may" be getting these checks, we do not know, but they are not earning the money by doing only surveys online. What they are doing is getting teens to visit their web sites and to click on the advertisements to sign up for surveys. The survey company then gives this person money for referring others to their site. This is a very valid way to make money, however, it is also very hard and tedious work, and it is misleading to allow a teen to think they can just answer surveys for big money. Surveys do not pay much at all, it is referring others to the site and having them sign up, this is what makes the money.

The very best way for a teen to make money (outside of retail and fast food) is to start a home business using their skills that they have worked on for so many years, be it little league (making them a great coach candidate for small children) or an instrument, they can mentor and teach others while making money.
