15 Good Jobs for Teenagers To Make Some Actual Money

Starting a job at a young age can help a teenager gain valuable work experience and handle responsibilities.

15 Good Jobs for Teenagers

Amusement Park Staff

Amusement parks, such as Legoland New York, hire staff 16 years of age and older. As an amusement park worker, you can choose from various roles based on your interest and even score free passes.

As a retail worker, you are expected to tidy up the store, stock items, and help customers at checkout. So if your favorite store is hiring (the odds are pretty good), why not work there?

Retail Worker

Truck Driver

As the supply chain continues to suffer due to COVID-19, truck drivers are increasingly in demand. While trucking might seem like a job for older workers at first glance, some high schools have started training their teens to become truck drivers! 

Food Delivery

Demand for delivery drivers has never been higher, especially with the addition of UberEats and DoorDash to your neighborhood pizza place and Chinese food restaurants. So if you have your driver’s license (or can get around on a bike easily in your town), you should consider becoming a delivery driver.


Becoming a lifeguard is as close to becoming a superhero as any teen can get. Your main tasks as a lifeguard are surveying the pool, enforcing pool regulations, and (in case of emergency) administering first-aid and potentially rescuing swimmers.


If you love little kids and are good at taking care of them, then babysitting might be the right job for you. Depending on the actual child and their age, you may be tasked with feeding them, playing with them, or helping them with their homework.
