North Carolina House Page Program
"Youth Learning through Serving"
Being a House Page

Work Schedule

Pages report to the House Page Office on Monday of the week they are to serve at 1:00 p.m. They will be on duty Monday evening, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., and on Thursday from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. During weeks with holidays, Pages will be notified the week prior to serving if there is a change in the regular schedule.

Dress Code

Appropriate business attire is required of all House Pages. Young men are required to wear dress slacks, coats, ties, socks, and dress shoes at all times they are on duty. Young women must wear dresses, pantsuits, dress slacks, or skirts with blouses. Flat, comfortable shoes are preferred. Pages are sent a detailed description of appropriate dress when they are appointed to serve. Any Page who does not comply with the dress code will not be allowed to participate and may be sent home.

Accommodations

It is the responsibility of the Page’s parent or guardian to make lodging arrangements prior to coming to Raleigh. Pages may stay with family, friends, or host families. Host families provide lodging, breakfast, dinner, and transportation from Monday evening until 8:00 am Thursday morning at a cost of $100 per week. A complete list of host families and contact information will be included in the appointment packet.

Compensation

Pages are paid a stipend of $150 per week to help pay expenses or, in lieu of payment, receive 30 hours of community service in accordance with their school community service policy.
