As a teenage household assistant, you’ll be helping people with anything they need done around the house. What’s great about this job is that you can do it all year round because people always need things done around the house. And, if someone really appreciates your help, they will keep hiring you for more jobs.
Some things that you could help with include sweeping and mopping hard floors, vacuuming carpets and rugs, dusting furniture and decorations, organizing closets, cleaning out attics or basements, pulling weeds, raking leaves, shoveling snow, or putting up Christmas decorations. Get creative with what you can offer to help with!
How much you get paid will depend on the type of work you’re doing and the person who is hiring you. For easier household cleaning tasks like sweeping, you could make between $5 and $10 per hour. When doing more difficult outdoor jobs like shoveling snow, you could make between $10 and $20 per hour.
What is important for making money as a teenage household assistant is that you’re willing to do whatever needs to be done around someone’s home. You may find yourself being asked to do things that you wouldn’t normally do, but as long as they’re safe and age-appropriate, there’s no reason not to get your hands dirty to earn some cash!
