... earned from doing odd jobs I was wondering if there is any way ...
First off, JOB = Just Over Broke. The sooner you realize that relying on someone else for your livelihood is a bad idea, the happier you will be. Stay in school, get a trade, and buy a pickup or van. You will never lack for work or money. If you want a job, be prepared to lose it every couple of years when the economy tanks or the corporation moves to Mexico or India.
I just bought a $700 tractor without spending a dime of my own money. I was helping a friend fix his horse shed & it need to be emptied first so we threw it into my truck. When we were done, I mentioned I was going to do a scrap metal run later in the week. He asked if I would take his old rider when I went. Sold the horse poop for $50 delivered to a newbie prepper. Got the rider running and sold it as a project to small engine shop for $300. The lady who bought the poop had a push mower she gave me. Sold that for $75. Dug out an old rider I no longer wanted and sold it for $350.
As a youth, you have the one thing us old people don't have: the ability to do manual labour. Most guys my age don't have the time or the physical ability to do hard labour anymore, but we do have a little surplus money. Couple of years ago I hired a teenager to mow my lawn. I even provide the rider & gas for him. Told him I would pay him by the hour. 20 minutes later he knocked on my door asking for his money. I looked at the lawn & it wasn't 1/4 mowed. He said something about his guild starting a quest shortly. Last time he worked here. My parents live in an apartment. They wanted a picture hung but neither can lift their arms over their heads. Could not find anyone to do the job. They even offered one guy $50. I ended up driving the 4 hours each way to hang a picture.
So, yes, there is always a way if you are willing to be creative.
