Jobs For Teens in Kentucky

While I had not considered what there is to do in Kentucky, it turns out that there is quite a bit. Teenagers can enjoy a cavern tour, visit Lake Cumberland, or explore a corvette museum. There are teen nights at a trampoline park, and festivals and fairs throughout the state.  The unemployment rate in Kentucky is 5.1%, allowing there to be opportunity for teenagers who are interested in working to gain employment.

If you're under 16 years of age, there are specific labor laws in Kentucky 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 Kentucky, 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.

If you're under 16 years old, your job options are different. Please select your age below:
