Teenagers have a lot to offer. They’re motivated by opportunity and rewarded same as adults. It used to be easier for young people to find honest work around the neighborhood. Yet, with increased competition for work, overscheduling of activites and extracurriculars, and the economic recession, teenagers today have limited opportunities to find jobs. We built Skratch to make it simple for teens to find and complete local gigs. Skratch is a demand-based app and an opportunity engine that connects and benefits both teens and adults. In addition to earning money, teens learn good habits about earning, spending, saving and doing. Meanwhile, adults get the help they need to accomplish a task. Watch to learn more.
Skratch offers gigs that will cost you far less than any other resource you might consider using. Not only are we a low-cost, affordable solution to getting tasks completed, but we know you will be impressed by the excellent service our Skratchers (teens) deliver. They want the chance to earn and are willing to work hard and deliver customer satisfaction.
There are hundreds of teens in your neighborhood and they are thrilled to share their skills. You can request a gig a few hours in advance or a week before. With so many options and so many teens ready to serve, Skratch is there when you need it.
Skratch is a safe way to get an extra set of hands to help you get life done. The relationships created are between trusted teens and adults that live in the same area. It is likely they know each other already but never knew there was a skill to be shared.
