Election season has just wrapped up and General Assembly session is quickly approaching, which means The Family Foundation is in the midst of important preparation. One of the critical elements of our preparation includes finding student pages that can assist our legislative team in our advocacy work in our Richmond office. Our page program offers students a valuable opportunity to experience the activities of a General Assembly session firsthand. Pages are responsible for the efficient maintenance of information within The Family Foundation's General Assembly Operations Room and information exchanged between The Family Foundation and the members of the General Assembly. Pages assist Family Foundation legislative staff in the accomplishment of their daily tasks, delivery of information to the General Assembly building, and administrative responsibilities in the Grassroots and Development departments. There will be unique opportunities to observe legislative committee meetings, floor sessions of the House of Delegates and Senate, and much more. Candidates for the page program must be in high school and have a pro-life, pro-family perspective on social issues and a Biblical worldview of the roles of politics, government and the church.
The Family Foundation's 2014 General Assembly team will begin work Monday, January 6 and conclude Friday, March 7. Those desiring more information or those interested in serving should contact Jessica Cochrane at 804-343-0010 or Jessica@familyfoundation.org. Page slots (half or whole days) are filled on a first come, first serve basis and they are filling up quickly, so do not delay calling/e-mailing if you are interested in our page program.
