Youth

Desjardins has a long tradition of involvement with local youth. This is why Caisse Desjardins de D'Autray is so enthusiastic about the concerted effort made by all Desjardins components toward youth outreach.

The caisse is solidly behind our youth in helping them accomplish their projects and achieve financial literacy. We invest in them in a variety of ways. It's our commitment to the future and the next generation.
