Work At Home Jobs For Teens

Finding Customers


Jobs for teens can be difficult to find if you don't want to work in a fast food or retail environment. Running a home business can be the perfect way to avoid the greasy after-taste and make some good cash. Not only will you use the skills you have been working on through middle school and high school, but you will also enrich the people you choose to work with.

After determining your strongest skill, you will need to find clients that would like to do business with you. There are a lot of people looking for your talent, but they won't be searching for you, it will be your job to search for them.

First, make sure you have your parent's permission for any endeavor that will take place in your home. Also, take these safety tips to heart, because they are very important.




Many churches have bulletin boards where you may place a business card or flier. Have a meeting with your pastor and ask if he can put the word out for you. Talk to the church leaders. Sit in with the classes at church that interest you or are similar to your new home business. Talk to the people attending the class.



School Employees

Talk with your school counselor, the vocational education teacher, and any teacher/coach that has a relation to your home business. If you are planning on coaching children on basketball, talk to the coach at your previous middle school. It is always best to talk to teachers one or two grades below your current grade, so you can get clients that are younger than you that really can benefit most from your expertise.



School Newspaper

Put an advertisement in your high school and previous middle school's newspaper. Have your parents help you with the wording, so you can be sure to run a safe advertisement.



Local Clubs and Organizations

If you are a chess master and want to tutor younger kids in chess, go to your high school and previous middle school and talk to the head of the chess club. If you are part of a bowling team, and left a previous bowling team, but still know some of the kids or parents in that team, talk to them about using your services.




If you and your parents are active in the neighborhood, have a small neighborhood barbeque or back yard party. Talk to them about your new business and see if you can find interest from any of the guests.




Your local college has summer activities where you may find a job that suits you. Talk to the college counselor about positions you may qualify for.


Home Based Positions




Your Special Talent

You have a talent. Although some may know their talent early in life, some take a little longer to find it. But, believe me, you have one. Use your time wisely and choose small jobs at first while you are still in high school. Give different kinds of jobs a chance. Use your hobby or your best subject in school to guide you and after a few tries, you will find a job that you really excel in.

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.
