Page Week! The House of Representatives has extended an invitation to 25 youth in DHS and Tribal Custody to serve as Pages for the DHS Foster Care Page Session!! Serving as a Page is an excellent way to learn about and participate in the legislative process of our state. Pages serve as couriers, answer telephones, do research for members, and prepare the chamber floors for sessions, distributing legislation and papers. The duties rotate so pages have a chance to serve all functions. Who can apply to be a Page? Foster youth ages 16-21 in DHS or Tribal Custody, or receive voluntary extended services, or have achieved permanency via guardianship or adoption after the age of 16. Those accepted for this experience will receive a stipend to buy new business clothes for the event; receive a food allowance for the week; have an opportunity to spend time with a legislator from their area; have a great experience to put on a resume or scholarship application; develop permanent connections with people at the capital; and spend a week in a hotel with a pool. Page Week is the third week in April. Contact OKSA at 800-397-2945 for more details, or download the application information below.

The 2018 application is now closed, check back to apply for Page Week 2019!
