How to Build a Resume That Stands Out Visually To Help Your Teen Land Their First Job

Creating a captivating resume that sparkles bright enough to catch an employer's attention is an art on its own terms.

With the ramp up pressure kids experience at school and the need to sign up to too many extracurricular activities, it’s no surprise how the number of teens employed have been declining over the past decades.
There are many benefits (and risks) of adolescent employment. The decision to allow your teen to have an after school job should be a well thought-out family decision based on how well they can manage responsibilities, time management and money.

The war of the kitchen gardens! Quebec couple wins right to farm on their front yard

More than 30,000 gardeners took action over the past three weeks in support of Josée Landry and Michel Beauchamp of Drummondville front yard food garden. Their garden described as "gorgeous and meticulously-maintained edible landscape full of healthy fruits and vegetables" was ordered to be removed by September 1st or face legal consequences. Town officials insisted Beauchamp front yard didn't conform with newly harmonized town code. 

With the help of Kitchen Gardeners International a petition was immediately created with the hopes to create media attention and put pressure on the town officials to allow the Beauchamp to keep their garden.
 The petition reads in part:
Front yard kitchen gardens are not the problem; they're part of the solution to healthier and more sustainable communities. Thanks for helping us to defend them.

Earlier this week,  after the intense pressure from the international media the town officials reversed their decision and allowed the Quebec couple to keep their front yard garden. In fact, town officials were so impressed about the positive reaction the garden had on people that they have invited  Josée Landry and Michel Beauchamp to help shape the city's new guidelines for urban food gardens. 

"It will now be allowed to Drummondville this type of garden in the front yard. However, this practice should be coaching, "announced Mayor, Francine Ruest Jutras.
