Committed to supporting youth

We give young people the means to shine because they have the potential to create a prosperous future.

At Desjardins, we're proud to help young people achieve their ambitions by investing $50 million a year in youth initiatives. This is how members, clients and employees together help highlight the talent and achievements of thousands of young people in Quebec and Ontario.

We are fully committed to supporting young people. We work in their interest, taking into account their ambitions and challenges. We help them to be better equipped for the future by investing in youth initiatives that focus on:

  • education
  • employment and entrepreneurship
  • health and healthy lifestyles
  • social engagement

Always there to support young people!

A few concrete examples

Desjardins Foundation

For nearly 50 years, the Desjardins Foundation has been helping people overcome challenges related to education. In addition to awarding scholarships, the Foundation is committed to anything that can improve graduation rates and the development of tomorrow's citizens.

Quebec Games

We encourage thousands of young people to surpass themselves by supporting the Quebec Games, where young, inspiring athletes who put their heart and soul into their sport come together to represent their region in one of the largest competitions in Quebec.


We support our extraordinary youth by contributing to Forces AVENIR, a program that recognizes and promotes student engagement, perseverance, determination and success.


We've been promoting the preparation of at-risk youth for socio-professional integration for the last 15 years by supporting Réseau québécois des Centres de Formation en Entreprise et Récupération, because we believe that everyone should have a chance to make the right choices.


We believe that all young people can become extraordinary adults. We promote their development and overall success by giving them the opportunity to blossom, get involved and lead healthy and active lives in an inclusive environment.
