GENERAL ASSEMBLY PAGE PROGRAM
The Family Foundation General Assembly Page Program is a unique opportunity for high school students to see and be a part of Virginia’s legislative process while the General Assembly is in session. Our program begins the Monday before the second Wednesday in January and lasts for 60 days in even-numbered years and 45 days in odd-numbered years.
Pages work directly with our full time staff, contract lobbyists, General Assembly coordinator, interns, and other pages. They are critical to the work we do to educate legislators and citizens on the issues in just the right way and at the right time. Tasks include but are not limited to:
Delivering Family Foundation policy research and briefs to legislators
Assisting our staff and interns with administrative office tasks
Attending committee meetings and House/Senate floor debates
Assisting in preparation for our annual Day at the Capitol and Legislative Briefing
During the General Assembly session, our hours are 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Pages are encouraged to work at least 1 full day or 2 half days each week so they can experience as much as possible. The Family Foundation’s office (707 E. Franklin Street, The historic Stewart-Lee House) is located between 7th and 8th Street on E. Franklin, a block and a half from the Bell Tower on Capitol Square.
