internet security

Job Bank

It’s snow season! Residents can call to hire teenagers to shovel or do odd jobs. Please plan snow removal as the number of teenagers is limited. Teens who want paid work should contact Youth Services to schedule an interview. The Job Bank is a referral service for residents who offer odd jobs to teenage residents aged 13 to 18.
