TBM State Staffers are a select group of high-school young men. Each State Staffer should have a strong background in Royal Ambassadors (RAs) and Challengers, or be willing to be trained in the mission program.

Application and Selection Process

  3. Potential State Staffers will be evaluated during the Leadership Training Camp and final selection will be made that week by the State Staff Selection Committee.

Financial Aspects

Each State Staffer fulfills his role as a volunteer for which no salary is provided. This does not prevent a financial gift or stipend from being given to a Staffer. 

The Staffer’s family insurance is the primary insurance at all times. Each camp will have secondary insurance and Staffers are not covered by TBM at events nor are they covered during travel to and from assignments. 

TBM will provide the following:

  1. State Staffer shirts
  2. Travel and camp fees involved in attending Leadership Training Camp
  3. Travel expenses to and from Staffer assignments
