Babysitting is a popular summer job for teens. Many teens can babysit all summer for a family who has children out of school for the summer.

2. Lawn Mowing

Lawn mowing is a great job for teens who like to be outdoors. Mowing jobs could be one time while the homeowner is on vacation or for a whole summer if they find someone who can't or doesn't like to mow their own lawn.

3. Golf Course Worker

If your teen likes to golf, then a summer job working maintenance at the golf course could be the perfect summer job. Teens should explore jobs at places they like to spend a lot of time to find a summer job they will enjoy.

4. Lifeguard

If your teen likes to swim, lifeguarding can be a great summer job. They'll get to spend time outdoors at the beach or the pool.

5. Restaurant Worker

Restaurants have lots of summer jobs during the tourism season for teens. They ususally need to hire additional waitstaff, busyboys, and hostesses for the additional summer business.

6. Grocery Store Bagger

Grocery stores are always looking for teens to serve as cashiers and baggers. While you may be able to get a summer job, most grocery stores will want you to continue to work during the school year after school and on the weekends.
