State Reps. Jack Jordan (R-Bremen) and Jake Teshka (R-South Bend) invite local students to spend a day serving as a House page at the Indiana Statehouse during the 2023 legislative session.

According to Jordan, Hoosier students ages 13 to 18 can sign up to page, and assist lawmakers and staff with daily duties while touring the governor’s office, the Indiana Supreme Court, and House and Senate chambers.

“Students that page are able to get a real, hands-on experience watching the legislative process unfold during their day at the Statehouse,” Jordan said. “This is a great opportunity to learn more about state history, government and public service.” 

Teshka said pages will receive an excused absence from school and can participate in groups, such as Girl Scouts troops.  

“My fellow colleagues and I really enjoy having local students visit the Capitol, listening to their questions, and sharing more about our duties and responsibilities,” Teshka said. “One day, these students will be leading our state, and the page program is a great first step in learning about public service.” 

Teshka said Hoosiers can visit or call 1-800-382-9841 to sign up their student to participate.

Opportunities to page are available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout session, which must conclude by the end of April. Students are responsible for their lunch, and transportation to and from the Statehouse.
