Desjardins has a long tradition of involvement with local youth. This is why Caisse Desjardins des Patriotes is so enthusiastic about the massive concerted effort being made by all Desjardins components toward youth outreach.
The caisses are highly committed to promoting savings and financial education. Learn more about caisse youth programs and promotions on JeunesseD (site in French only) - External link. This link will open in a new window..
To fulfill its educational mission, Caisse Desjardins des Patriotes has supported the financial, economic and social education of young people through its school caisse program, which aims to introduce children to sound savings habits at an early age. Through this program, it has partnered with 18 school caisses in its communities.
Caisse Desjardins des Patriotes also contributes to the Desjardins Foundation, which encourages and supports the education, dreams and ambitions of the next generation.
