The Desjardins Youth Work Experience program

The main goal of the Desjardins Youth Work Experience program is to help young people become more employable in the future by giving them a chance to learn new skills through:

  • a first stimulating experience in the job market or a first rewarding work experience
  • training about attitudes on the job and the basics in job search techniques (mock interviews, writing a resumé, etc.)
  • an awareness-raising workshop on cooperation and financial management

The program also:

  • makes studies relevant by giving young people real-life work experiences, so they get a glimpse of potential career paths and are encouraged to pursue their studies
  • gives young people a sense of belonging to their region and prevents an eventual exodus
  • promotes networking between young people and local businesses and organizations
  • contributes to the development of participating businesses and organizations by helping them hire an extra employee for the summer
  • supports non-profit organizations
  • allows young people to enjoy a rewarding experience as members of the community


Coopérative Jeunesse de services program

The Coopérative Jeunesse de Services is made up of young people ages 14 to 17 who were recruited by the staff of Maison des jeunes du Plateau Mont-Royal for the summer. The project organizers support the group of cooperators throughout the summer by helping them find and carry out small residential and commercial jobs.
