Areas of responsibilities currently assigned to Scouts are:.
a.       ADA Team

                                                            ii.      ADA section volunteers are stationed inside the ADA areas to check individuals in, make sure the sections are reserved for individuals with disabilities only, and direct any individuals inside the ADA section to port-a-johns or vendors. Crossover Volunteer:
b.      Inside line management volunteers manage lines at both the port-a-johns and vendor locations in order to prevent line back up into the magnetometers. If the backup reaches the magnetometers, Secret Service will stop the security screening process.
c.       Directional volunteers will greet attendees after they pass through magnetometers and are to guide them to the parade route. This includes directions for both ticketholders as well as the general public.
d.      Magnetometer ADA volunteers will guide all self-identifying individuals with disabilities through specific magnetometers.
e.       Line management volunteers will assist with line formation and direction in front of the security checkpoints. Lines are anticipated to be very long, so these volunteers need to make sure that attendees are greeted and informed of what can and cannot go into the venue. Line management volunteers help sort through ticketed and non-ticketed guests and direct them to the appropriate line.
f.        Access Control Bleacher Volunteers will focus specifically on keeping people with the proper credentials in their proper place.
