Opportunities For Students

Be at the Centre of the Democratic Process

The Page Program is more than a job. It’s an opportunity for high school students in Alberta to learn first-hand about the Legislative Assembly while gaining work experience, career insights and valuable job skills such as communication, problem solving and leadership.

Pages support the Legislative Assembly while in session by distributing messages and documents within the Chamber and to offices within the Legislature Building and Edmonton Federal Building. Session is a series of meetings of the Legislative Assembly that generally runs February to June and October to December, during which time Pages work at least three shifts per week Monday to Thursday.

APPLY BY MAY 31 TO BECOME A PAGE

To apply, students must be at least 15 years of age by September 1, 2018, entering Grade 10, 11 or 12 as a full-time student, and they need to demonstrate a strong and consistent academic standing. Participation in the program requires a great deal of commitment. Students should be able to balance work demands with school and extracurricular activities.

Take this opportunity to be at the centre of the province’s democratic process; apply by May 31, 2018.

Mr. Speaker´s MLA for a Day gives Alberta high school students from Grades 10 to 12 the chance to find out what it really means to be an MLA. Participants learn more about the role of an MLA and experience firsthand what it's like to deal with diverse points of view when making decisions on provincial issues.
Students from across Alberta will spend three days in Edmonton, in and around the site of the Alberta Legislature. In addition to touring the grounds and building, they will visit the office of their MLA, attend a formal dinner hosted by the Speaker and participate in a variety of fun activities. The program is packed with exciting educational opportunities leading up to a debate in the Assembly Chamber itself. Interested students can find out more from the Visitor Services office.
