Spring comes with the need to clean up the yard and prepare the garden. Residents can call to hire teenagers to do odd jobs. Teens who want paid work should contact Youth Services to schedule an interview. The Job Bank is a referral service for residents who offer odd jobs to teenage residents aged 13 to 18.
