A #DesjardinsFoundation Prize for youth in our community

The Desjardins Foundation awarded $2,000 to high school students at École secondaire Armand-Corbeil to fund their De bons smoothies! project.

Ms. Fafard's class got the opportunity to run their very own small business. They prepared smoothies and sold them to their fellow students. The skills and concepts covered in this project included budgeting, purchasing, food prep and sales.

#DesjardinsFoundation Prizes allow people working in educational or community settings to get funding to carry out a project with kindergarten, elementary school or high school students. The 345 winning projects were voted on by Desjardins Group directors and employees.
