Working in Bogotá at age 18

Hi,

I am a senior in high school this year and am considering spending a year in Bogotá before going to college. I would, of course, need to have a job during this time. I have not been able to find much advice for people of my age wanting to work in Colombia. Does anyone know if I would be able to find a job as an English teacher if I got a TEFL certificate online? I do not have experience teaching at the moment, but I plan to begin volunteering as a tutor soon. I am, however, top ten in my graduating class and have a good resume of extracurricular activities. I would love to coach running (track/cross country) and/or baseball if schools have teams. Would that help my resume? Also, does anyone have any other recommendations of jobs I may be able to get at only 18?

Thanks
