WHAT IS SENGAGE?

SENgage is the Senate of Canada’s youth outreach program. Through SENgage, young people from across the country have the opportunity to connect with senators and learn more about the work they do, the role of the Senate in our democracy, and how senators provide leadership on important issues.

SENgage takes requests from schools, colleges, universities and youth-serving organizations that wish to have a senator address their group. SENgage is your point of contact throughout the process and can supply additional educational resources to ensure your group is well-prepared for the experience.
