Jobs For Teens in Colorado

Teenagers in Durango can grab inner tubes and float down the Animas River, in fact, outdoor activities in the state of Colorado are abundant, no matter where one lives. In the winter, skiing is available across the state and in the large city of Denver there is all a major city has to offer; shopping, restaurants, sporting events and theme parks. The state even features a maze adventure land with a high ropes course and other activities. With the state unemployment rate at 3.4%, teenagers that are interested in earning money during some of their leisure time should have plenty of opportunity to do so.

If you're under 16 years of age, there are specific labor laws in Colorado that don't allow you to work for traditional employers.  Of course, if you're 14 or 15 years old you can get a work permit in Colorado, but otherwise there isn't too much information on this page that will help you.  With that being said, if you're under 16 years of age and don't have a work permit, please select the appropriate age below to find jobs that suit your age group.
