Desjardins has a long tradition of involvement with local youth. This is why Caisse Desjardins des Sources is so enthusiastic about the massive concerted effort being made by all Desjardins components toward youth outreach.

  • “Place aux jeunes” conference for Secondary 4 students from École secondaire l’Escale
  • École secondaire l’Escale’s Gala Méritas
  • Desjardins Student Trio work experience program
  • Camp musical d’Asbestos
  • Elementary schools in its territory

Desjardins Student Trio

Aware of the important role played by young people in local economic development, the caisse joined several partners (the Community Futures Development Corporation (CFDC), towns, caisses populaires and caisses d'économie of the Des Sources Regional County Municipality, the Carrefour jeunesse-emploi youth employment forum and the Centre d'emploi pour étudiants student employment centre) in supporting the Desjardins Student Trio work experience program. The caisse's commitment helped create 91 student jobs (72 through the Expérience Travail – Été summer work experience program and 19 through the Apprenti stage internship program). The total amount allocated to the project was $30,000.

School Caisse

To encourage elementary school students to save, your caisse holds a draw for a bike at each school among members who made deposits throughout the school year. Each deposit represents a chance to win. Every year, 6 young savers win a bike.
