Summer Jobs Programs for Youth 2010 - 2016
Hubber carlie h has asked about summer jobs for 13-year-olds and we can provide some information here.
As part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, Career Central in Pasco County may have jobs for youth as young as 14 and as old as 24. Thirteen-year-olds and their parents can use the contact information below to learn whether any exceptions can be made for 13-year-olds. Most jobs are already filled by mid-June, but sometimes youth quit and need to be replaced from someone on a waiting list. If you cannot be placed onto the waiting list, sign up early for 2010 and each additional summer until you are 24 years old in some cases.
Many teens and pre-teens want to find a job for the summer to earn spending money, to save for a special purchase or for college, to use for clothes and supplies for the new school year coming up, or to help out their families. Others want to work to have a feeling of independence and to start building a resume early. They may have instruction during the school year in work readiness classes to help them prepare for the world of work.
Most summer jobs require youth to be at least 14 years old in order to work legallly. The exceptions may be:
- Family owned businesses (owned by the youth's own family), and
- Summer job programs sponsored by the local Workforce Development Board. These summer programs were operated by then nation's Private Industry Councils and a few of them are still open for business, helping youth and adults find jobs. Still, the lower age limit maybe 14.

Be Safe Looking for a Job and On the Job
At the age of 13, some youth can make money in the following ways:
- Newspaper route weekly or daily
- Delivering weekly ads door-to-door
- Lawn mowing and yard work
- Running Errands
- Babysitting - The YMCA/YWCA often offer training and certification classed for youth babysitters.
- Dog walking and pet sitting
- Recycling - glass or plastic bottles and cans.
Have your parents help you find out what type of work is legal for you to do in your city and consider placing a Want Ad in your local newspaper, advertising your services - dog walking or babysitting, perhaps. Pass out flyers in your neighborhood, if it is safe and legal to do so and your parents agree. Your parents will need to help you screen the calls and email replies if you list your email address. Do not go to meet anyone you don't know alone, only with your parents.
Some youth start their own businesses when they come up with a good idea about a service that is needed in the community and not met by anyone else. That is another option.
Best of success to you!
