Mission Statement

Invest in the teenager of today, the future workforce of tomorrow. Our mission is to remain the #1 site for U.S. employers to find and hire self-motivated teenagers and prepare our teen members (19-14) for the workplace to improve their ability to land and be an outstanding employee on the job. U.S. teen participation in the labor force is at an all-time low. Studies show people who spend a large share of their young adult years unemployed have a hard time finding and keeping a job later in life. Job hunting for teens is haphazard at best. We catch young people at the moment "they" feel they are ready to work. It is at this time that young people make critical choices that affect their transition into adulthood and shape their perceptions about work, money, and life. Our teen members say their income is a necessity rather than a luxury. They are savvy enough to know that work-based learning early in life will help prepare them for their future.

Description has had millions of visitors; teens, parents, teachers, counselors, organizations and businesses. We’ve connected hundreds of thousands of employers and teens. Now approaching our 20 th anniversary sadly many of the early visionary employers have disappeared as the nature of "work" has evolved. What has remained consistent is the desire of 80% of teenagers to have a paying job. Through physical and digital workshops we offer our members job readiness training that incorporates the soft-skills most in demand by today’s employers.
