program aims to connect Deerfield teens who are available to do outside yard
work, including snow shoveling, with Deerfield residents who need the service.
The Village has created a
database of teens who are looking for this kind of yard work. The TeenConnect
list provide contact information for Deerfield teens including the name and
address of the teen, days of availability, type of work they are willing to do
and their expected rate of pay. The application requires a parent or legal

Residents will then be able
to receive the list by mail or email. The resident will be responsible for
contacting the teen and for making financial and scheduling arrangements.
The intent of this program
is to assist residents who are unable to do physical work themselves, unable to
afford the cost of a professional contractor on a regular basis or only would
require assistance on an as-needed basis.
