Thank you for the additional information.
The subpoena should have been served on the parent/guardian of the minor, who then must respond with the minor at the proceeding designated in the subpoena. A minor is deemed to be under a "legal disability" by reason of age, which makes service of any legal process directly on the minor ineffective. So, it is actually your parents who would be under order to produce you to testify.
The court may allow your testimoney without your parents present. However, you may want to contact the prosecutor.
Correct, your parents are not, presumably, testifying. The subpoena is served on them, as your guardian, to produce YOU to testify.
