Is there such a thing as getting a permit to work at thirteen?

I have a friend who really needs money, and she'd like to get a job. She's already made up her mind, and she said a friend had told her that he got some kind of permit to work at only thirteen. Is this true? And if it is, can someone tell me how to get one so I can pass the details onto her?

I am not sure about all of the laws but I do know that you can be hired as a helper for a registered daycare when you are 14. You need to be CPR/First aid/mandatory reporter trained and have a criminal record check done first.
