Park Slope Parents Policy for Posting about Tweens/ Teens Looking for Work

  • Print

We’ve updated our policy on Tweens/Teens/College Students looking for work so please read the following.

We encourage parents to help their younger kids to find jobs on the Classifieds. 

Post for jobs such as:

Yard Work, leaf raking, snow shoveling, light moving/schlepping
Babysitting
Birthday party/catering help
House/pet sitting, dog walking

Please note we do not allow parents to post for kids regarding higher paying jobs such as tutors or website designers. In addition, if your child is over 22 and looking for babysitting/nanny jobs they need to be recommended by an employer who is a Park Slope Parents member.

If your situation fits our requirements, here are the guidelines:

Post with "Teen/College Student looking for work" in the subject line.
The contact information must be the parent (for safety reasons).
All done? Please resend to and we will be happy to post.


REMINDERS:

Put YOUR contact information in your post (not the teen’s) so you can vet the inquiry and decide on the safety and legitimacy of the post. While this does not put the full responsibility on the teen, we feel this is the safest way to protect those involved.

It's up to the parent to use a screening method that s/he feels appropriate and pass contact info on.

Best of luck and we hope that your child finds great work!
