Youth

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

Desjardins Youth Offer

In addition to offering financial products designed especially for young members, the caisse also proposes the expert services of a youth advisor. Entirely dedicated to young people 18 to 35, our advisors use a personalized advisory approach to help them achieve their dreams and projects.

Scholarships – A financial boost for local students

In addition to encouraging kids to stay in school, the caisse contributes to various scholarship programs. Students can apply on the Desjardins Foundation site - External link. This link will open in a new window.. The call for applications takes place every year between March 1 and 31. The single application gives local students access to several scholarship programs (Desjardins Foundation scholarships, the caisse's scholarship program, other scholarships, etc.).

2021 scholarship program

Because the caisse values academic success, $100,000 in scholarships will be awarded this year to full-time vocational, college/CEGEP or university students. Caisse members age 34 and under can apply by creating a profile on the Desjardins scholarship platform. Scholarships will be awarded in fall 2021 through a random draw from among all eligible registered members.
