I dont know if you have one where you live, it wouldnt help you make money, but could help pay a few bills - so your mom could free up some money for school shopping. it’s called Audubon Area Communtiy Servies, they help you pay your utilities and stuff.

Answer #4

I think you should try the local newspaper route, babysitting, doing outside work, or selling nonvaluable stuff on ebay(thats what I do), I pays big sometimes too! please let me know what you decide on!

Answer #5

I think the only job you would be able to get is babysitting.

Answer #6

Be inventive…get a job…talk to local stores and see if they will buy like homemade cookies and brownies that you could make; or try getting a job at mabe a skating rink they hire at 14 I think. Just be creative; mabe babysitting/cleaning etc…keep ya head up..it gets better.

Answer #7

okay what you need to do is go to your school office and ask for a workers permit, they’ll give you a piece of paper part of which you will fill out, and the other part your employer will fill out. I suggest getting a job as a car hop at sonic or a job at braums. Because you are a minor you wont be aloud to handle fryers or anything, opperate heavy machinery blah blah blah… after an employer fills that out take it back to the person that gave you the permit with your birth certificate…then they will make it official

Answer #8

You can offer babysitting…but really…this is not your worry…do you and your mom have a church to go to? That is a good place to start. When I don’t have a lot of money I go to goodwill…you can get jeans…sorry your dad is not there for you…If you still talk to him, ask him for money for school… he is still responsible for you and your sister…

Answer #9

You’ll have to check the laws in your area - may require a permit..some ideas:

How to apply for your first job: http://teenadvice.about.com/od/adviceexpert/ht/htapplyjob.htm Baby sitting (only for persons that are trustworthy) Chores for trustworthy neighbors Car wash Bake sale Bus boy/girl Store stocker Paper route Dog walking Grocery store Lemonade stand Paint House number on street curb House sitting Message Delivery Pharmacy Delivery City, County, State and other government-run Youth Programs Vacation and Tourism spots Hotels/Resorts Parks and recreational areas Swimming pools, golf courses and campground facilities Day and summer camps Amusement/Theme/Entertainment parks Museums, Zoos and Aquariums Airport concession firms Childcare and Eldercare providers Health care facilities Business services (including) Moving and packing companies Pool and spa companies Lawn care and other maintenance companies Construction companies Movie theaters Fast food and restaurant establishments Ice cream parlors, juice bars Clothing and accessory stores Newspaper / Magazine Distribution

Legal Considerations: Not many people are aware that they break the law when they work without fulfilling the basic requirements that involve teenage work. So let us see, what this is actually. Note this is not an exhaustive list and hence for accuracy you should check with your local guardian or legal advisor (at school or at any social center). Also be aware the each State & Country may have different laws that cover teenagers working conditions. Timings: Teenagers below 14 years old are usually not encouraged to work in offices. For those above 14 and above they should not be working at night. The legal hours are any time between 7 am to 7 PM ‘ of course ensuring that school is taken care of. Those between 16-19 years of age can be free to work as much and as long as they please. However, girls should always be wary and careful when working nights as crime increases at night. Work areas: Teenagers may work anywhere they can be engaged with the exception of places where they could endanger themselves or others, such as construction sites, repair sites or garages, chemical and other types of processing, mining, messenger jobs, warehousing, adult clubs and bars. Social security number: There are places where teens need a social security number to receive payment; Taxes: Most of the time teen jobs do not involve tax payments and need not have any dedication in the paychecks. However, you need to consult the local IRS to ascertain this. Each state and country has its own set of rules and what is valid in one may not be in another. Do not take anything for granted. Keep in mind that legal aspects are serious matters and you do need complication with the law. Check and be sure you fulfill all the legal formalities applicable for teenagers before you even apply for work. Ask the help of a responsible adult, such as your parents, teachers or relatives and seek out the correct answers - no such thing as a stupid question.

Wish you the best and always be alert, putting safety first !!

Answer #10

At your age it will be pretty hard to find a descent paying job. However your mom can apply for things like WIC and Medicade to help pay for things like doctor visits and things like that. There are also food stamps that your mom could apply for. It’s all based on income.
