NC House, Senate, and Governor’s Page Programs

NC House and Senate Page Programs

The North Carolina Senate and House of Representatives Page Programs provide the opportunity for students to find out firsthand how laws are made by helping in an individual senator’s or representative’s office. These pages must be between the ages of 15 (or in the ninth grade) and 18, must be in good academic standing in their schools and sponsored by a Representative or Senator.  There are no program openings currently scheduled for the 2021-22 school year due to COVID concerns.

NC Governor’s Page Program

NCHE helps to facilitate the opportunity for teens of North Carolina homeschooling families to participate in the Governor’s Page Program by setting aside a week each year as homeschool week and providing help for those who wish to go on their own at other times.

The Governor’s Page Program provides an opportunity for students age 16–or soon to be 16–through recent graduation) to find out first hand about the function/operation of state government. The Governor’s Office page program focuses on professional development, service opportunities and educational experiences in civics and history.  When Governor’s Page Week is an in-person experience, activities include visits and interaction with each of the three branches of government (visiting the State Supreme Court and justice(s); visiting the Legislature and meeting with House and/or Senate members; meeting with representatives of the administrative Cabinet).  For the NCHE group, an effort will be made to include a visit with the Office of Non-Public Education (the “homeschool office”).
