Can a 15 year old work or volunteer without parental consent?

Work a job in which there are taxes involved? No, there are many jobs denied those under 16 - by law - without parental consent. Or even with parental consent. Volunteering is a gray area. If you volunteer at a church bake sale or car wash fundraiser, or some such, then the organization accepting your help has not broke a law. But if your parents go to that organization and say that you have no permission to be there, then the church or charity might have legal problems if they let you come back.

Is it legal to get married in a church without parental consent at age 16?

Yes it is OK, but some churchs may have a problem with it (depends on the minister or pastor) so just visit the church of your choice and see where it leads.Even up until the early 1900s it was not uncommon for very young people to get married. Just a bonus for you ... on the Canadian news there was a man 101 years old and his wife was in her late 90s (they were wed very young) and had been married for 80 years! This is extremely uncommon in today's modern world. The average length of marriage today is not quite 4 years.MarcyAnswerI would like to add, that it would only be valid in legal terms if it is allowed under the laws of the state of residency.

Can a child be baptized in a Catholic Church without parental consent?

No, not under normal circumstances, which is not to say that there might not occur extraordinary circumstances under which it might happen, but that would be up to the pastor, and would be most rare.

Without such a hope, baptism would be worse than useless. However, in danger of death, a child must always be baptized, regardless.
