How to Make Money as a Teen Online Without a Job
Make Money With a Part-Time Job
Yes, finding a part-time job is the most obvious way to make money as a teenager. But there is a reason: once you are hired, you will be paid for your working hours. This is a very low risk and you will get a guaranteed rate per hour.
Working for others is not always fun, but you will learn a lot in the process. You will make connections for reference-not to mention friends! -And gain valuable on-the-job experience, which will help you in your future life. Hey, we all have to start somewhere!
To find a part-time job, ask friends and family for contact, check the job list on the website, or just request a job application. Remember that young teenagers cannot get many part-time jobs.
1. Work In a Restaurant
Whether it is a fast food restaurant or a sit-in restaurant, almost all food service agencies are asking for help. You can serve as a cashier or host at the front desk, serve as a waiter to provide food to guests, or clean up later as a waiter or dishwasher.
Allowances include tips and discounted or free meals for certain positions, depending on where you work. Keep in mind that working hours can be strange, but child labor laws mean that if you are under 18, you don’t have to work too late.
2. Get Directions to the Newspaper
Believe it or not, some people are still reading the newspaper! This time-tested position still applies to early risers who want to make money.
You will most likely need to get up early to navigate nearby and deliver newspapers, and using a vehicle will definitely make your work easier.
Local newspapers near me require a driver’s license, but smaller newspapers may not have the same restrictions. It’s worth seeing!
3. Serve Food or Pizza
Another delivery job is food, especially pizza. Delivery requirements vary from company to company, but you definitely need a license and a reliable vehicle.
Think about when people order food-mainly evenings and weekends, right? Chances are, if you are a teenager, there will be free time in your schedule. Together with hourly rates and tips, this can be a good money-making project.
4. Retail Industry Jobs
I heard that everyone should be in retail at some stage in their lives. Retail offers a lot of flexibility in terms of schedule and time, which is very useful for teenagers who need to go to school within a week.
Many large retailers, such as Target or Walmart, require employees to be at least 16 years old, and these retailers have many different jobs.
You can become a cashier and deal directly with customers, or you can work and clean up on the shelves at the back of the store.
You can enjoy discounts on employee goods and participate in seasonal work to earn a little extra cash during holidays or summer.
5. Work In a Grocery Store
Grocery stores also usually start hiring teenagers from the age of 16. They seem to be asking for help all the time. Like a retailer, you can deal directly with customers as a cashier or grocery packer, or keep more content by disposing of trolleys, restocking, or cleaning up.
6. Work in a Movie Theater
For teenagers who want to make money, a very popular job is working in a movie theater. First of all, many teenagers are already working there, so you will work with your peers and can make some friends.
Depending on your location, you can also enjoy air conditioning on hot summer days and even watch free movies. The work of the cinema includes conductors, conductors, concession booth workers, gatekeepers, etc.
7. Become a Referee/Umpire
You probably participated in a sport when you were a kid, right? Or are you still playing? Well, you may have some extensive knowledge of the rules of this sport.
Sports associations, parks, and recreation programs need referees, referees, and match officials.
If the association is desperate enough, this work can even be done when you are young. For example, my 9-year-old son was judged by 14-year-old juveniles in some of his baseball games. (They also did a great job!)
This is also a good amount of money for teenagers-usually a flat rate for each game, which can be added up quickly.
8. Working as a Golf Boy
Serving as a golf boy is a great choice for young tees, because you can usually start at 14 or even younger. Get ready to spend the day outside with someone else’s golf clubs.
This is a great way to exercise interpersonal skills and build connections.
Golf boys charge by the hour and may also receive tips and other allowances, such as free tee time.
9. Take Surveys
To be honest… Filling out a questionnaire is not the most exciting way to make money. You might think these sites are a scam. But in fact, there are many legal investigative companies out there.
One of my favorites is Survey Junkie, because their withdrawal requirements are very low, only $5.
They also have a Trustpilot score of 4.5/5, so others like to use them.
You won’t make a lot of cash, but it is easy to do and can be done while you are sitting idle. In addition, many of these sites accept young group members (over 13 years of age).
If you want to go this route, there is one more tip: sign up for a separate email address, just for surveys. This way your normal email inbox will not be blocked by mail, and you will be able to see all available surveys in one place.
10. Search with Swagbucks
One company I didn’t mention in the previous point is Swagbucks-yes, you can use Swagbucks to investigate, but you can also do many other things with Swagbucks.
You will earn “Swagbucks” by playing games, watching videos, searching the Internet, and even doing online shopping through Swagbucks!
You won’t make a lot of money, but it is a nice extra income. In addition, you only need to be 13 years old to sign up for a Swagbucks account.
