Jobs For Teens in Illinois

For teenagers in Illinois, there are plenty of options available to keep busy.

And there are over 50 state parks in Illinois with miles of trails for teenagers to roam. The unemployment rate is 6.4% in Illinois, which while higher than in some states, should not keep teenagers who are motivated to work from finding employment.
