U.S. House of Representative Page Program
About the U.S. House of Representatives Page Program

The U.S. House of Representatives Page Program is not currently available.  In the past, it has been an exciting opportunity for America's youth to be an integral part of the legislative process and to learn firsthand about the legislative branch.

Should the program be available again, this page will be updated.
 
Students serving in their junior year of high school could qualify for this program.
 
Pages serve primarily as messengers delivering legislative material between the various buildings of U.S. Capitol Complex.  They also may be tasked with answering phones in the Republican and Democrat Cloakrooms, perform light clerical work and assist on the floor of the House of Representatives.

The U.S. House of Representatives Page Program offered both a school year session and a summer session.

Previously, sixty-six young men and women are appointed by Members of Congress to serve as Pages in the U.S. House of Representatives.

This program was administered by the Office of the Clerk of the U.S. House of Representatives.

The Application Process

The U.S. House of Representatives Page Program is extremely competitive. Each of the 435 Members of Congress may submit one or more recommendations, but only 66 Page positions are available. Final selections are made by the Majority and Minority leadership and the U.S. House of Representatives Page Board.
