Desjardins has a long tradition of involvement with local youth. This is why Caisse Desjardins de l'Ouest de Portneuf is so enthusiastic about the massive concerted effort being made by all Desjardins components toward youth outreach.
Your caisse is proud to support the following projects or organizations:
Each year, the caisse awards student scholarships to its young members. In 2018, the caisse will give out 30 scholarships, for a total of $15,000. Each year, approximately 200 young people attend a scholarship awards night.
To help introduce children to sound savings habits at an early age, Caisse populaire Desjardins de l'Ouest de Portneuf actively supports the educational school caisse services at the Sainte-Marie, Le Goéland, Le Phare, Saint-Charles-de-Grondines, Le Sablon d'or, La Morelle, La Passerelle and Le Bateau blanc schools.
The caisse also mentors the Saint-Marc-des-Carrières student caisse (now called the Finance Lab). The Finance Lab is an educational project that helps high school students learn about managing a mini-caisse.
