The Indiana Senate Page Program is an interactive educational experience for students in grades 6-12 to learn about state government.

Senate pages have the opportunity to:

  • Tour Indiana's historical Statehouse, including the House and Senate Chambers, the Supreme Court, and the Governor's Office.
  • Observe the legislative session directly from the floor of the Senate, listening to debates on important policy issues.
  • Meet and assist senators with age-appropriate tasks.
