Yay!

Summer's (nearly) here.

What are your plans - are you going to spend it relaxing, or doing something more productive?

Lazing around is certainly enjoyable, but you can fit relaxation in and still find a more rewarding way to spend your summer.

So here are some ideas for spending the summer without feeling like you've wasted the time …2

1. Get Yourself a Part-Time Job

One really useful way to spend the summer is by getting a part-time or summer job.

It'll give you some cash for a vacation, to save up for college, or towards a car.

Or it could boost your savings account.

Working also teaches you valuable skills for when you leave school, such as time management and working with the public.

It also shows that you're hard-working and determined.2

2. Learn Some New Skills

You could also take advantage of having so much free time to learn a new skill.

If you're old enough to drive you could take lessons or do an intensive driving course.

Or you could get someone to teach you practical skills like basic car or house maintenance.

There are lots of summer courses where you could learn all kinds of useful and interesting subjects.

3. Start a Small Business

Plenty of teens have an enterprising spirit, and youth certainly won't stop you if you're determined to succeed.

Use this time to start a small business such as dog walking or website building - whatever you're interested in and there's a market for.2

Not only is it useful extra cash, but you'll learn useful skills - and it could even be the start of something big.

4. Doing Community Work

Volunteering is a fantastic way to spend your time and give something to your local community.

Whether it's an organised program or just helping out your neighbors, there's bound to be plenty of ways in which you can help out.

Visit elderly people who don't have family, help out at a children's play scheme, or clean up the neighborhood, for example.
