How does it all work?
Teen Staff are trained to help with many behind-the-scenes conference duties. Teens will be placed on teams and will get to know their fellow staffers as they build leadership and teamwork skills throughout the event. Over the course of the convention, teams will rotate through a series of workshops, activities, and service jobs, many of which require interacting with convention attendees. Each team has a “Gold Shirt” team leader to train and encourage them.
Parents should understand that while Gold Shirts work closely with their team, teens are often spread throughout the Convention Center when serving and have small breaks throughout the day. In light of this, we ask that registered teens be mature enough to stay with the group and have the ability to meet back with their team at specified times.
