Part-time job opportunities are varied and include cashiers, servers, clerks, merchandise stockers, housekeepers and personal-care aides.

VA Deparment of Labor & Industry Youth Employment Certification

(formerly Worker's Permit)

In Virginia, all 14-15 year old workers in Virginia are required to obtain an Employment Certificate (Work Permit). Since 2009, the school system no longer has an active role in this process. Children and their parents will no longer need to visit their local schools to have an Issuing Officer sign their paperwork.
