I worked as a Congressional Page for the House of Representatives in High School. It was one of the best things I did my entire high school career. I loved it. I did not see the debauchary that apparently every one assumes is common place for all pages. I think it really has to do with the personalities of those who are chosen to work as Pages. The people I hung out with while I worked as a page were my fellow pages who were also my age. I am sure we could have found trouble had we wanted to.
BTW I still maintain contact with many of my fellow pages today, like 8 years later. Anyway just thought I would put in my two cents since I had firsthand experience with the OP. I would be willing to answer any questions others might have.
