Hey, kids! Summer’s here and the time is right to earn some pocket change so you don’t have to pester your parents for all the cool stuff you want. Lennar communities make finding a teen-friendly job easy.
As one of the nation’s leading homebuilders, Lennar builds more than just fine homes where Everything’s Included® but creates special communities—where employment opportunities for youngsters are as close as next door or right at their fingertips.
While many of the 85 Lennar communities throughout the Metroplex feature such rich amenities as resort-style pools and swathes of green space, new homes for sale in Dallas-Fort Worth boast exceptional locations close to teen-friendly employees.
Communities themselves also offer close-to-home job openings or can create them.
We’re all familiar with the babysitting gig. Dallas-area sitters earn an average of $13.72 per hour, Indeed.com says. And that’s just baseline. Parents are known to tip big for a good sitter, and the business-minded teen can bump up the hourly rate for a last-minute call.
Likewise, plant sitters, pet sitters and dog walkers can pull down $8 to $16 per hour, according to The Penny Hoarder.
Teens can turn their talent into treasure, too, offering their skills to neighbors. Take and sell your photography. Offer tailoring or seamstress services. Design T-shirts for community occasions, family reunions, and birthday parties. Start your own woodworking shop and make furniture and bookshelves for your new Lennar neighbors.
It goes without saying that anyone born after, say, Y2K knows how to break the speed limit on the information super-highway. And with Lennar’s World’s First Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ Home Design, connectivity makes teen freelancing a high-speed snap.
Using their laptops or tablets, teens can create content for websites, from words to photographs; offer to tutor to those of us who don’t know Microsoft from a microwave, or teach music lessons to younger kids in the community. Fiverr.com is filled with freelance opportunities even small creative jobs suitable for 13-year-olds.
Homebuyers still make awesome employers for young neighbors who can mow lawns, wash windows and vehicles, clean your new Lennar home, help build a raised garden bed where they can also plant tomatoes.
And Lennar homeowners in communities from Arcadia Farms in Princeton to new homes for sale coming soon to Woodcreek in Fate can help kick-start tomorrow’s executive careers with fun- and fun-filled work experiences this summer.
