Summer and Year-
Round Jobs For Teenagers
By starting part-time employment early, teens build crucial skills — including time and money management — that set them up for success in the real, adult, post-school world. Through our Youth Empowerment Program, teens and young adults can learn about responsibility and the importance of showing up on time and the expectations associated with being a valued worker all year. They add experience to their resume and get to know the real world. Youth from 14 to 20 years old are eligible for our youth career and job readiness programs.

Financial Education and Money Management
Sooner or later, youth need to learn that parents aren't ATM machines. Through working, teenagers find out how to appreciate money. They also learn how to budget their new income, enabling them to save for big purchases. There is no better way to learn about money than by learning that you need to earn it to get what you want or need.
According to the T. Rowe Price Parents Kids and Money Survey, parents who talk with their children once a week about money are more likely to have teenagers who say they are smart about money. When teenagers get jobs, they not only get workplace experience, they learn how to plan, budget and spend or save their earnings to help themselves and their families become more self-sufficient.
Youth Partnerships and Teamwork
Businesses that employ teens generally have a staff of many, and that staff needs to work together. On the job, teens learn about the importance of being a team player-- a valuable skill throughout life. As adults, our teens will know how to work well with others, because they learned the value of timeliness, collaboration, workplace ethics, and responsibility.

Prepare for Future
In 1973, only 28 percent of workers had an education beyond high school; in 2010 that figure was 59 percent. By 2020, according to the Georgetown Center on Education and the Workforce, 65 percent of all jobs will require post secondary education and training beyond high school. Job skills matter. In 2014, unemployment among young adults was 17.8 percent for those with a high school diploma, and 22 percent for those who had not completed high school. Teenagers who start job readiness training early tend to be more successful in life. Prepare for your future now!
