Beat The Summer Heat With A Yummy Treat!



Wouldn't it be AMAZING to work at a frozen yogurt or ice cream shop? I'm a huge fan of frozen treats, and there are a few places to choose from in Lufkin and Nacogdoches, including Orange Leaf, Chilly Fillmore's, The Frozen Goat and Dairy Queen. I think I'd indulge a little too much if I worked somewhere like that every day! Contact the nearest store to see if they're looking to hire – just make sure you're not lactose intolerant, or allergic to nuts!







Working at a restaurant or fast food establishment is one of the most popular choices amongst teenagers and students. You can make great money (as long as you deliver great service), and the hours are fairly flexible, since most places are open seven days a week. Reach out to a variety of restaurants in Lufkin or Nacogdoches if that's something you'd be interested in doing this summer to earn some money!




Summer Camps or Local Organizations



One of my favorite jobs as a teenager was coaching gymnastics summer camps in Canada. Where else do you get to play with kids all day, and jump around on trampolines?! Now, trampolines may not be your thing, but find an activity or sports that you thoroughly enjoy, and reach out to a local club or organization in your community about finding a job! The Boys and Girls Club of Deep East Texas has career opportunities, as well as job openings at the City of Lufkin (parks and recreations division and the zoo).

Other job opportunities can be found on the City of Lufkin or City of Nacogdoches websites.
