Ambitious Texas teens are wise enough to already be looking for summer jobs. Waiting too long too long to do so often leads to lesser choices.
According to Skratch co-founder and CEO Scott Bennett, "The whole vision of this app was about creating teens as entrepreneurs and allowing them to raise their hand and say I want to work, I’m ambitious."
Bennett continued, "And we really don’t discriminate on who uses the app. In fact, our dream was that people would discover this and say this is the right thing for today’s teenager. Because quite frankly, teens have always worked and they have a lot of skills -- everything from technical to otherwise. So there’s no barrier to what teens are able to do, it’s just the access that we provide. The easy connectivity."
The Skratch app is also available in Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Waco, and just expanded to over 700 zip codes across Texas.

There is nothing like the pride of self-worth and knowing the money in your pocket, is money you earned.
Best wishes to all Texas teens seeking summer employment!
