A group of teens clad in red polo shirts and carrying Apple tablets set out to provide out of town visitors with information on places to go, food to eat and things to do during the College Football National Championship weekend.

The BCS City of Pasadena Ambassadors, composed of high school-aged boys, worked in Old Town  Pasadena and the Paseo Colorado District during the weekend before the Jan. 6 BCS National Championship game. The teens were mentored and supervised by the Gamma Zeta Boulé Foundation's LAMP Mentor Program.

The boys also provided the area businesses with a "personal concierge touch," said organizers in a press release.

"We appreciate the opportunity to work with the Pasadena Convention and Visitors Bureau to provide an important service for out- of- town visitors," said Harlan Ward, Gamma Zeta Boulé Foundation president.

Craig Washington, Tournament of Roses committee vice-chair and organizer of the event, praised the effort between Gamma Zeta Boulé and the Tournament of Roses.

"The collaboration between  Tournament of Roses, City of Pasadena and the Gamma Zeta Boulé Foundation in providing a positive  experience for college bound young men to engage with out-of-town visitors from all over the country as City ambassadors was extraordinaire," Washington said.
