In our home our focus is teenagers! We recently added a second teen to our household so Charles and I have been discussing activities to keep her busy.
Those include a summer job search and volunteer work.
Check with your local non-profits for volunteer opportunities for your teen. They will not only have the chance to keep busy for a few hours a week but pick up some job skills.
Looking for volunteering opportunites? Ask them about their interests and what type of skills they might want to utilize. Then start by inquiring with their local church, schools, food banks, hospitals and animal shelters.
