The City Of Baltimore Pays Teens To Shovel Snow For The Elderly And Disabled

January 29, 2016

Last week, Baltimore saw its largest single-day snowfall ever – topping 27 inches.

Equipped with a shovel and a smartphone, hundreds of teens fanned out across the city to shovel sidewalks for the elderly and disabled.

The City Youth Snow Program pays teens $10 an hour and they can make up to $750 over the course of the winter.

The program's aim is to not only provide work opportunities to those who need them but to assist the disabled and elderly who need assistance shoveling snow.

The program uses a phone app to connect the teens with shoveling jobs within a few blocks of their homes. The shovel crews take before and after pictures of the sidewalk and submit them on the app to show the work was done.

The work may not be easy, but it is rewarding.

"Yesterday my back was killing me. My back and my legs. But that was it. I'm good," 17-year-old Aiesha Johnson told the Baltimore Sun. "I like it. It helps more people out."
