ENGAGE the Great Lakes Bay Region was established in 2011 as a non-profit grant funded civic engagement initiative facilitated by students and faculty at Saginaw Valley State University. The initiative is geared to increase civic engagement, community pride, and volunteerism in the Great Lakes Bay Region. The organization aims to decrease young voter apathy through an educational non-partisan "Rock the Vote" style campaign in high schools and other higher education institutions in the area.
