How can a 15 year old earn money?

This Question From Earn Money Now | 5 Answers


I’m trying to get a job so I can start violin lessons. I live with my single mother and 2 younger brothers so money is a problem. I decided that I would pay for my lessons so that my mom doesn’t have to worry about it. But, I don’t know what to do for a job/earn money.
I need to babysit my brothers for most of the days so what can I do? I was thinking of babysitting other children. How much would I charge per hour? I’m really experienced with kids (because of my brothers) and can take care of children 2 and up. What do you think?
Any other jobs I can do at home or near home?

    Mowing neighbors lawns
    Doing yard work for people

    Those are pretty much all I can think of right now.

    Yep, babysitting can work to get extra money.

    Maybe being a cashier at the nearest store could work so your mom could pick you up after your shift.

    Either one would work.

    You have allot of responsibility on you at such an early age. I respect the fact that you are looking to relief some of the burden off your mother. Depending what part of the country you live in will determine the rate for a baby sitter, however I have found that the going rate is $5.00 per child per hour. There are also lots of ways a 15 year old can earn money. Most people in your neighborhood probably need help with things around the house – once you start, do an excellent job, and are found to be trust worthy the word will spread and you will have so much work you will turning things to do down.

    Why not consider picking up dog droppings as a part of your own business? You can earn upwards of $20 an hour, and all you need are a few tools a bicycle, and perhaps a bicycle trailer. This article talks about it and how a woman in Colorado quit her management job to do it.
