Fast food.

Delivery.
Office/mail room.
Warehouse.
Retail.
Store security (fake shopper watching for shoplifters).
Gas station.

Apply at the local city or county hiring office.  It's free and sometimes they have jobs when others don't.

Apply soon and often.
Apply in a manner that you think they are expecting.  This is not a good time to declare your independence.
Act in a mature manner.
Hide (cover up) any tats.
Be polite.
Be on time.
Act (be) intelligent.
And respectful.  You can be disrespectful in your free time.
Act interested in what ever it is that they do.
Research the place before you apply so you know a little about the company and can ask intelligent questions.
Be respectful. (Yes I know I already said it but it's important)
Try to look and dress like someone they would want to hire.
Act like you want to work, but don't beg.
Figure out why you're a better applicant and let them know it.
Be polite.

Good luck.

 wow thanks for the advice I really appreciate it

Also, don't be afraid to walk into places (esp. places you like/shop at/eat at, what have you) and ask if they are looking for help.  Sometimes they don't advertise as well, or weren't even thinking of hiring until someone asks.  Ask adults you know if their businesses are hiring.  Put the word out there that you are job hunting, and even if places aren't currently hiring, ask if you can leave your number or fill out an application to be kept on file - remember, it never hurts to ask.

 thanks mean i never thought of that

Hmm... You could start flippin' burgers. I'm not quite sure how well that pays, but it's at least minimum wage. In USA I'm fairly sure minimum wage is up to $7 now.
You could make a few hundred bucks working light hours throughout the week.
