These online jobs range from talent specific (like freelance writing or graphic design) to jobs that pretty much anyone could do (like taking surveys online), so there's bound to be something to fit every teen's style. And once they start earning, not only will it alleviate some of the costs, but it will also teach them the important lesson of the value of a dollar — a true win win.
