Hi Tatiana:

Finding a job at 15 can be a challenge but it doesn't have to be. Kudos to you for at least wanting to work at your age! Below are a few tips for your consideration to help get you off the ground.

• BABYSIT in your church nursery or children ministry area - - this could eventually lead to you becoming a Sunday School teacher, which looks good on your college application (definitely makes you stand out above the pack)
• HOUSE SIT / WALK DOGS - - make sure you house sit for someone you know and trust. My daughter does this from time to time when friends go on vacation and need a trusted friend or someone they know to watch their pet(s)
• HELP FAMILY MEMBERS WITH CHORES - - I've paid my 12 year old niece to help me with small tasks such as dusting bookshelves, blinds, sweeping stairs etc. I've even solicited her to help me take down Christmas decorations for a small fee
• WASH CARS - - wash and clean cars on weekend. Charge a little more for SUVs and Trucks
• LAWN CARE - - rack leaves, shovel snow, etc.
• YOUTH CAMP COUNSELOR - - summer or seasonal
• TUTOR - - in a subject that you are good at. Or, a language you want to help someone learn

Make sure to be polite, friendly, punctual and do your job; it'll lead to you possibly getting repeated business. These are just a few ways that you can earn money. Hope this helps. Best of luck to you on getting that first job!

Anthony’s Answer

Hey Tatiana,

It is tough as some places of employment will not consider a minor, unfortunately. However, sometimes, volunteering can lead to a paid position.

Check out www.volunteermatch.org to find an organization that you are interested in.

Also, try typing in jobs for 15 year old in the search box and see what comes up.

Hope that helps
