Airports typically have signage and announcements to guide passengers to their connecting flights. Your 14-year-old should look for signs indicating the gate or terminal of his connecting flight and follow them. If he needs assistance, he can ask any airport staff member or go to a customer service desk for help. It's also a good idea to make sure he knows the airline, flight number, and departure time of his connecting flight in case he needs to ask for assistance.
As for the number of workers at the airport at that time of day, it may depend on the airport and the day of the week. However, most airports have staff available 24/7 to assist passengers.
In terms of tips, you can advise your 14-year-old to give himself plenty of time to get to his gate, stay aware of his surroundings, and avoid leaving his belongings unattended. It may also be helpful to remind him to carry a charged phone with important numbers programmed in, including yours and the airline's customer service number.
