The West Virginia Legislature’s Page Program has become an integral part of the services provided to legislators and the public. The Page Program, from its inception, has been a communications link between lawmakers and our young students.
The Page Program gives students, grades 6 thru 12, from West Virginia’s public and nonpublic schools an opportunity to serve as Pages in the West Virginia Legislature during the regular session. Pages serve members of the House and Senate in a nonpartisan capacity, within the Legislature. The Program accomplishes the following objectives:
- Provide students with a meaningful and exciting experience in state government
- Meet and work with other young people, their state representatives and those from different areas of the state
- Give students firsthand learning experiences regarding the role of the legislators in the state
- Have students share thoughts and ideas with legislators as lawmakers formulate and make decisions affecting every citizen
