Welcome to the North Carolina General Assembly House Page Program website.
This program offers young men and women the opportunity to learn about, and participate in, the legislative process of our state. It is a four day long experience that allows high school students between the ages of 15 and 18 (or 14 if already in the 9th grade) to observe firsthand how our laws are made. It provides them the unique privilege of working in the House Chamber in the midst of legislative action.
House Pages are important to the operation of the General Assembly as they assist the Members and staff of the House during the legislative session. They participate in daily sessions, committee meetings, and perform other duties including, but not limited to, delivering messages and materials within the legislative complex, answering phones in Representatives’ offices, and passing out documents or running errands in the House Chamber during daily sessions.
The selection process for this program is highly competitive. Official appointments are made by the Speaker of the House based on recommendations by individual Representatives. Each Representative is allotted a number of students he or she can sponsor each session. Students submit their application to their Representative who selects the individuals to be appointed by the Speaker. Appointments are made on a first-come, first-serve basis.
