Raatz: Applications available for Indiana
Senate Page Program

STATEHOUSE (Dec. 2, 2022) — The Indiana Senate is now accepting applications for the 2023 Senate Page Program, said State Sen. Jeff Raatz (R-Richmond).

Through the full-day program, students in grades six through 12 tour Indiana’s Statehouse, listen to debates and help staff with age-appropriate tasks. Students also have the opportunity to meet their state senator.

"As chair of the Senate Committee on Education and Career Development, I highly encourage all students to consider signing up for the Senate Page Program," Raatz said. "There are few opportunities available for Hoosiers to personally see their state government in action and this invaluable educational experience is one of them."

The Senate Page Program will begin in January and run through early April. Positions fill quickly, so it is important to apply early. Pages are scheduled for Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays during the legislative session. They begin their day at 8:30 a.m. and are dismissed at 3:30 p.m. Groups serve together on Wednesdays. Serving as a page is considered an excused absence from school.
