Top 10 Summer Jobs for Teens

Lifeguard

Life Guard


If your teen is at least 15 years old and a proficient swimmer, she might consider training to be a certified lifeguard. Besides spending her working hours in the sun soaking in the rays, she will learn valuable lessons in responsibility and safety. To become a certified lifeguard, a 37-hour course is required, which includes training in CPR, AED, first aid, surveillance techniques, proper use of rescue equipment, and managing spinal injury victims. Your teen will also have to pass a written test and a swimming test. Life guarding is a rewarding job that develops confidence, decision-making skills, conflict resolution, and professionalism in your teenager.
