Hi! I need ideas. My dd17 wants to be an elementary ed major in college. She would love a part-time job now. What would be a good job for her. Obviously babysitting would be great but we moved here not long ago and we just don't have the contacts of people with young kids. She has done VBS and will do it again. But money-paying jobs...any ideas?

I have only lived in places where child care workers (daycare, church nursery, day camps etc.) have to be 18 to count in required ratios, so it may be hard for her to find that kind of job at 17. She would probably have to volunteer rather than get a paid job working with kids.

Can she swim? Lifeguarding is a really good one. But, it is a little late for this summer because they are hiring right now or already have and she would still need to get her certification. 

 

Chuck E Cheese? An indoor playground place where you have to pay to play? Do they still even have those?

I was also assuming that a day care center would not hire a 17 year old.

No, she can not swim. I mean she can but not really do the strokes that a lifeguard would need.

 

Chuck E Cheese! That's an idea. There is one not far from here. I'll see if she'll consider that. It probably won't be anything great on a resume, but she might prefer it to serving coffee at Dunkin Donuts.
