Summer Job for an American teenager in Switzerland?

Hello, I am new to this forum and I hope you guys answer/have similar questions on this topic. I am 16 years of age and I have work experience in a grocery store. I also study the German language in school and I am quite fluent in it. I have grandparents in Switzerland and I have been thinking about going to live with them for the summer to improve my German language skills. They live in Zurich and they have been permanent residents of Switzerland for over 30 years, but they do not have citizenship. My question was, are there any summer jobs in Switzerland that would hire a 16 year old American and give me a work visa/permit? I could arrange this before I go and it would also be nice if it is close to Zurich so I could potentially stay with my grandparents. This will also be a great way for me to save for college since a Swiss McDonald's has wages around 20 CHF per hour. I am guessing some people have similar questions and I hope you guys can also benefit from this thread.
