For the 2nd year in a row, 6 Desjardins caisses in Laval got together to contribute to the success of youth at the college, vocational and university levels.
Laval caisses launched their Desjardins, mes études et moi program to encourage young people in school and support them in their academic and professional development.
In all, 84 scholarships for a total of $128,000 were awarded to students.
Vocational training and college studies: 40 scholarships of $1,000
University studies: 44 scholarships of $2,000
Winners attended an exclusive gala on October 15, 2019, at the Laval Cosmodome. Comedian Mehdi Bousaidan hosted the evening, much to everyone's delight.
At a cocktail, winners enjoyed appetizers, a poutine station and Randolph animation games throughout the evening. In addition, each guest could make a keychain or bottle opener personalized with their picture.
Desjardins caisses in Laval are proud to make a difference in the lives of young people and help them pursue their dreams.
