With May just around the corner, many BCHS students need to start looking for their summer jobs. There are ample amounts of opportunity for working teenagers in the Indianapolis area from lifeguarding to sales. Ms. Catherine Welch, guidance counselor, said, “Having a job teaches students responsibility, independence, accountability, and life skills that will benefit the student.” She also said it is a chance for students to make money and learn to manage their own finances.

A common summer job is nannying. Senior Abby Saunders said, “I think nannying is a great starting job for teenagers. The hours and money is great and I love kids.” There are also many openings at the Keystone and Castleton malls for sales positions or cashiers. In the Broad Ripple area many restaurants have spots for students. Senior Drew Schrage who works at Bazbeaux in Broad Ripple said, “Having a job gives me something to do and is a good way to make money for college.” The popular ice cream shop Brics is hiring for the summer. Sophomore Amanda Boggs works at Brics and said it is a fun environment, but definitely not full of free time.
