    20 Ways for Students to Make Money This Summer!

    Sometimes finding good work when you’re young can be tricky, especially if you have little experience or need more flexible hours. Here are some ideas for making money on the side to get you through this summer!

     

    1. Sell old clothes through an app like Vinted!
    2. Design websites/blogs on the side if you’re skilled.
    3. Babysit for a family. Look within your church or neighborhood for clients.
    4. Offer dog sitting or dog walking for a set price while owners are away at work or on vacation!
    5. Deliver groceries. Have people send you their lists and run their errands for a price!
    6. Become a personal assistant for the summer.
    7. Offer house cleaning services.
    8. Teach lessons in your skill set—like a sport, a musical instrument or a second language.
    9. Start a door hanger service. Offer to help businesses gain exposure in the area by hanging their flyers around town!
    10. Sell your crafts, paintings, jewelry, specialized cards, etc. Try setting up an Etsy account and selling your crafts online.
    11. Become a lifeguard. CPR and lifeguard training are required, but it makes a great summer job!
    12. Become a camp counselor at your local summer day camp, church camp, YMCA, etc. Do your research to see what camps are active in your city.
    13. Start a photography business. Are you gifted with a camera? Offer your photography services at a packaged price or take stock photos and sell them online!
    14. Apply to work at your local movie theater or ice cream shop.
    15. Have a yard sale. Maybe your parents or others will agree to give you a percentage of the proceeds if you choose to organize the whole thing.
    16. Organize yard sales for others as a service!
    17. See if there are any extra jobs that your parents would be willing to pay you to do around the house, like cleaning the gutters, organizing the garage, cleaning their cars, etc.
    18. Drive for Uber (for those over 18).
    19. Recycle! Offer to collect recyclables in your house and around the neighborhood. Ask people if they’d be willing to donate their cans and bottles, and then you can turn them in for cash. You could rake in a good amount of money, depending on how serious you are and how often you collect.
    20. Sell your creative skills. Are you able to write, shoot videos, edit videos, provide social media management, draw, create music, etc? Offer your skills for businesses and individuals on Fiverr!
