Exploring This Job

Talk to neighbors, relatives, and others with small children about babysitting some evenings and weekends. Preschools, day care centers, and other child-care programs often hire high school students for part-time positions as aides. There are also many volunteer opportunities for working with kids—check with your library or local literacy program about tutoring children and reading to preschoolers. Summer day camps, Bible schools, children's theaters, museums, and other organizations with children's programs also hire high school students as assistants or have need of volunteers.
