I'm 17 years old, and I've been programming for several years now, and I'm hoping to make web development my career in the future. I'm wondering if there are any companies that would hire somebody like me so that I can get some money before college, and some experience for a future long term job. If it's possible, where would I look? Is there a specific position I should be seeking out?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Questions asking for advice on what to do are not practical answerable questions (e.g. "what job should I take?", or "what skills should I learn?"). Questions should get answers explaining why and how to make a decision, not advice on what to do. For more information, click here." – scaaahu, gnat, TrueDub, WorkerWithoutACause, Chris E
You can go to your local community college career office and ask about places hiring interns. You're only a year or two younger than what they're expecting, and potentially more qualified than the average applicant. You won't make a ton, but having a mentor is potentially worth much more than another two dollars an hour at this point.
You can also pass out your resume to everyone you know, and ask them to take it to their friends. I receive several high-school student resumes per year, and they're usually on par with an average college student.
