We are looking for motivated teens and we can work around sport schedules. We keep their weekly hours low (2-3 hours per day, several days/ week), but will increase it if they are looking for more work. We find they do not get burned out if we keep it short and sweet. Interested persons can email me at joe@lavenderlanemi.com with EMPLOYMENT in the subject line.
