Finally getting around to responding...
I think the teens just go through the training with the adults. I don't see a problem; they're certainly old enough to understand what they're doing. We may be playing outside the rules though -- confirmation here isn't until junior year in high school, and I think I've read that you're supposed to be confirmed to be an EM. Instead, many teens use EM'ing as their confirmation service project.
We break that rule at the grade school too. Eighth graders serve ast EMs during school Masses.
I don't know if having teen EMs influences their peers regarding the Eucharist,
