Jobs for 13 Year Olds in San Francisco

by Natalie Saar; Updated September 26, 2017

In San Francisco, finding a job for a 13-year-old may not be any easy task. By law, 13-year-olds cannot be hired by a business, so teens are left to find other forms of work. This may include walking around and asking various neighbors about help they may need.

Car Washing

Washing people’s cars is a great way to make some money as a 13-year-old. San Francisco is a city where many people use public transportation, but some also drive. If your neighbors have cars, ask if you can wash them for pay. Also, since they may take public transportation, you can wash their cars during the day.

Animal Care

Since many people work during the day or go on vacation during the summer, they may be looking for someone to take care of their animals. This means that you can walk their dogs or feed their cats. Walking dogs is not only a way to make money, but it is also a good way to get some exercise and keep in shape. In a city like San Francisco, there are not many yards and animals need to be taken out for walks.

Babysitting

Babysitting your neighbor’s children is another way to some money. At 13-years-old, you are legally allowed to babysit. Consider taking some Cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) classes so you will be more knowledgeable and qualified to bab sit. With these qualifications, you will get more babysitting offers from recommendations.

Yard Work

While there are not many yards in the city of San Francisco, you can ask building managers if you can care for the foliage or yard space that buildings have. Start with your property manager and then ask him if he would recommend you to his friends who have buildings. This not only makes you money, but will also teach you the valuable skill of marketing.
