North Carolina Governor's Page Program

North Carolina Governor's Page Program High school students from all over North Carolina have the opportunity to come to Raleigh for a week of hands-on participation in their state government.
(5)

The Governor’s Page Program, established in 1973, cultivates future community service leaders. Governor Roy Cooper encourages young people in North Carolina to get involved in public and community service, including by applying to serve as a Governor’s Page. Established in 1973, the Governor’s Page Program gives high school students from all over North Carolina the opportunity to come to Raleigh for a week of hands-on participation in their state government. We want our Governor’s pages to represent North Carolina’s diverse communities and help inspire a new generation of leaders. During their time as a Page, students will be challenged to learn and develop in four key areas: • Civics. Pages will learn about state government and how the different branches of government work together to serve the people of North Carolina. • History. Pages will gain a better understanding of North Carolina’s present and future by learning about its past, through tours of historical sites and museums. • Service. Pages will learn first-hand how North Carolinians serve their state through public service. We hope this will inspire pages to consider how they can best continue to serve their communities. • Professional Development. Pages will develop skills needed for higher education and careers, including how to conduct themselves in a professional setting. Criteria Each applicant must be a North Carolina high school student in good academic standing between the ages of sixteen and eighteen years old. Pages are selected to serve for a term of one week. All Pages must abide by a Code of Conduct throughout their time in the program. Activities and Responsibilities The Governor’s Page Program offers students an in-depth view of state government. During the week, Pages will be assigned to assist staff in the Governor’s Office or other agencies and departments as needed. In addition, Pages will tour multiple government buildings during their stay including the Legislative Buildings, the Capitol, the Office of the Governor, and the North Carolina Museum of History. Finally, Pages will have the opportunity to meet with government officials and discuss how state government works and how it impacts the lives of North Carolinians. Schedule Pages serve for a term of one week. Weeks are available throughout the year with the exception of state and national holidays Pages must report on Monday of their week at 1:00 PM to the Governor’s Office in the Administration Building, 116 West Jones Street, downtown Raleigh. The daily schedule is from 1 PM-4 PM on Monday, 9 AM-4 PM Tuesday through Thursday. Dress Code Pages are expected to dress in business attire each day. Young men are required to wear dress slacks, coat and tie. Young women are expected to wear a skirt and blouse, a dress or a pantsuit. Pages should wear comfortable shoes as the program requires walking to various locations in downtown Raleigh. Stipend Pages will receive a stipend of $150.00 per week to offset the costs of expenses incurred. Checks will be distributed on Thursday before Pages depart Raleigh. The program also offers 30 credit hours of community service. Accommodations Once accepted to the program, it is the responsibility of the Page and his or her guardians to make arrangements for accommodations prior to coming to Raleigh. If you will need a host family, please contact the Page Coordinator once accepted for a list of possible homes. Lunch and Parking Pages should plan to pack a lunch or bring money for lunch every day. The surrounding area offers a wide variety of restaurants with prices ranging from $8-15 per meal. In addition, pages may wish to bring extra money for miscellaneous expenses. Governor’s Pages may park in the Visitor’s Parking Lot located on the corner of Jones and Wilmington Street for a flat fee per day. There is also intermittent free parking located on W. Jones St. Contact Information Tyler Robinson Page Coordinator Email: [email protected] Office: (919) 814-2080 How to Apply Complete your application online in one sitting. Be prepared to provide a first, second, and third choice for of the week you wish to serve. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until the program is full for 2017. You will also need to identify two people to complete recommendation forms for you. One recommendation form should come from a non-relative community member, such as a coach, pastor, youth advisor, and one should come from someone affiliated with your school, such as a teacher or counselor. Incomplete applications, or applications without two recommendations, will not be processed.

This virus is continuing to spread rapidly, with 65 of our 100 counties designated as red. We have strong safety measures in place right now to drive down these numbers. Let’s keep following them this holiday season to protect each other.

The Fourth Annual Governor’s School Supply Drive is underway and has been extended through January 16.

Due to COVID-19, this year’s drive is taking place entirely online. No need to shop for school supplies or drop them off at collection sites.

As Governor Cooper said, “This is the easiest school supply drive we've had because it just takes a few clicks. The right supplies are vital to a successful school year for students and teachers and this year they need our help more than ever.”

Donations are tax deductible. The North Carolina PTA will use the money raised to provide school supplies for students who are either learning onsite in classrooms or who are continuing to learn virtually from home.

State employees and other participants have the option to donate funds directly to a school district or charter school they wish to support, or to a general fund to be divided among counties with the greatest need.

Thank you for all you do to support public school teachers, students and their families during this challenging time.

Please consider a donation of $20 to put towards a case of paper or $50 that could help buy a dozen binders or books for required reading.

Let’s highlight this NC Governor’s Page from our October internship program!

Hey y’all! My name is Payton Martin and I’m a senior at Calvary Day School in Winston-Salem and a dual enrollment student at Forsyth Technical Community College through the Career and College Promise Program. I applied to be a Governor’s Page for many reasons. I have been a page in both the House and Senate, an agriculture delegate at the North Carolina Youth Legislative Assembly, and a youth attorney through YMCA Youth and Government. I love getting hands-on experience in our state government because I hope to one day be a part of it! I love the opportunities programs like these and the Governor’s Page Program gives students to use their voice! I’m also a varsity cheerleader and the reigning Miss Lewisville! Leadership is important to me, and this program enhances that greatly not just for me, but for every page that’s blessed to be involved in this program! In the future I plan to major in political science, minor in criminology and attend law school to accomplish my goal of becoming a criminal prosecutor. In addition, I hope to hold a seat in our General Assembly one day!

And today’s NC Governor’s Page highlight is...

“Hi! My name is Luke Fountain and I am a senior at Fred T Foard High School and Lenior-Rhyne High School Scholars Academy. I applied to be a Governor's Page because I had previously worked as a House Page and wanted to better understand the executive branch of state government. The discussions and knowledge I have gained from this week are unparalleled and will aid me in assisting my community. In the future, I hope to work in the public sector after pursuing a degree in political science or public policy."

Andrew looks like he’s in the Christmas spirit as we enter into our last internship of the year with the Governor’s Page Program!

“Hi! My name is Andrew Zonneveld and I'm a junior at the Onslow Early College. I applied to be a Governor's Page because I felt like Onslow County is out of reach from most opportunities and resources, so serving as a Page is a great opportunity to join the conversation. The connections I have made and the discussions I have had are invaluable and unique. In the future, I hope to have a more active role in government after pursuing a degree in Political Science and earning my JD.”

On yesterday’s Office of Public Engagement’s #COVID19 Virtual Update, Volunteer NC Executive Director Caroline Farmer spoke about the critical need for volunteers during this Holiday season.
“What does this current surge of COVID cases mean for us as members of a community, for us as volunteers, for leaders? It means that COVID positive people in our own communities are going to need meals and groceries delivered because they’re quarantined, it means that unemployment is going to be stabilized or continue to go up, it means those folks are going to have more need for food and utilities assistance during the winter. It means that food banks and food pantries who are providing these groceries to these folks in need are going to need your help to volunteer to move the food, to get it out there to the wonderful, fabulous charities that are helping these folks around the state. It also means these charities and these churches who are out there helping on a day to day basis around the state - their coffers are empty right now. Giving Tuesday was just a couple of days ago and I would encourage you to think about who you want to give to, what causes and how you want to be helping others in your community.”

Case counts are too high in our state and across the country. Health care workers and hospitals are strained. We need to do what we know works — wearing a mask, washing our hands, waiting 6 feet apart — to get us safely to the other side of this pandemic. - @nc_governor

In an excerpt from yesterday’s News and Observer article, North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper announced a new set of mask requirements Monday, calling them the state’s “best weapon” against a “dire” spread of COVID-19.

He said the state now has 20 counties considered “red” under the state’s new coronavirus alert system — double what it was when the color-coded alerts were introduced last week. Counties can also be ranked orange or yellow.

The new executive order implements the new mask rules Nov. 25 at 5 p.m. and also extends North Carolina’s Phase 3 executive order to Dec. 11, one week after it was set to expire.

Our Governor’s Page Highlight is from Chapel Hill...

Hey guys! My name is Christina Ahn and I am a junior at East Chapel Hill High School. I am currently interested in going into the field of political science or international relations, which is why I applied to the governor's page program. I thought this would be a great opportunity for me to gain insight on what political science could look like when applied to the real world. I am extremely grateful to be given the chance to be a page and hope to leave a positive impact on my community through my service project.

Let’s start this holiday week off with another page highlight!

"Hi! My name is Srinithi Srinivas and I’m a senior from Cary in Wake County! I’m currently interested in business administration, marketing, and economics. I applied to the governor’s page program to learn more about the inner workings of the governor’s office, as well as gain insight from a diverse group of individuals. I aspire to use the resources and privilege I have to serve those who are in need and represent people who cannot stand up for themselves. I am so grateful to be a part of this program!"

Today’s NC Governor’s Page highlight is Noah Aiken...

“The reason I chose to apply as a governor page is because I come from a small town where opportunity can feel distant and unobtainable. I wanted to see the government work from the inside out because I value hands-on learning. American government is a beautiful thing, but understanding all aspects is crucial to appreciating it. I believe through this experience I will discover a new respect and perspective on our intricate government system as well as make unforgettable memories. I am honored to serve the great state of North Carolina as a governor page and want to thank God for the opportunity to do so.”
