Raleigh, NC – Governor Pat McCrory is encouraging high school students to apply for the Governor’s Page Program. Upcoming dates for the one-week internship in Raleigh are available beginning September 8.
“As students are heading back to school, we are encouraging families to get more information about the Governor’s Page Program and apply for available Fall dates,” said Governor McCrory. “The page program provides valuable firsthand experience in how government operates. It is training North Carolina's high school students and the next generation of our state's leaders about the importance of public service."
Governor McCrory hosted nine North Carolina high school students from around the state at the capitol last week. They were the last group of students for the summer participating in the Governor's Page Program.
Established in 1973, the Governor’s Page Program provides students with an opportunity to gain hands-on knowledge of the function and roles of state government while learning about the importance of public service. Pages selected serve one week terms and are granted a stipend of $150.00 per week to offset the costs of expenses incurred.
Each applicant must be a North Carolina high school student in good academic standing between the ages of 16 and 18 years old.
