We encourage parents to help their younger kids to find small jobs on the Classifieds, such as pet sitting/walking, mother’s helping, yard working, snow shoveling, and babysitting. If your child is looking for a school-related internship, those should be posted on the Park Slope Parents Career Networking Group.
Please note we do not allow parents to post for kids out of college or for 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 you fit 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).
POSTING COULD INCLUDE:
- Yard Work, leaf raking, snow shoveling, light moving/schlepping
- Birthday party/catering help
- House/pet sitting, dog walking
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!
