Cooperative education for youth project

To meet the needs of our youth clientele and build a real trust-based business relationship with them, we organize an annual meeting with the graduating students at the Polyvalente Appalaches de Sainte-Justine in mid-May. The goal of this information session is to make students aware of the financial challenges they will face after graduation and the financial products and services available to them.

This year, the meeting will take place on May 6, 2011, at 12:30 p.m.

School caisse

To help introduce children to sound savings habits at an early age, the Caisse Desjardins des Etchemins actively supports the educational school caisse services in local schools.

Caisse Desjardins des Etchemins also contributes to the Desjardins Foundation, which awards over a half million dollars in scholarships each year.
