Caisse Desjardins de Saint-Hubert 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.
Learn about the following programs and activities:
The caisse proudly welcomed members of the community to Pierre-Laporte Park on May 29, 2022, to contribute to its youth committee's latest project: a new green space for the community.
Volunteers showed up for a fun day of planting under the guidance of a team of experts from Arbre-Évolution.
More than 100 plants were planted by the end of the day, including canopy trees, fruit trees and edible plants. As they grow, they will benefit the entire Saint-Hubert community for many years to come.
Everyone is welcome to come pick and taste the fruits of their labour!
In collaboration with Quebec and Ontario elementary schools, Desjardins offers the school caisse, a savings education program. Introduced more than 100 years ago by Desjardins Group founder Alphonse Desjardins, the school caisse initiates children ages 5 to 11 to savings and responsible spending, in addition to encouraging their financial independence.
To instill in children a strong and ongoing sense of belonging to their school and community, school caisses provide them with the means to put into practice the values of cooperation.
In Saint-Hubert, the following elementary schools participate in the school caisse program: De Maricourt, Du Jardin-Bienville and Des Milles-Fleurs.
Elementary school students can enroll in the school caisse program regardless of whether their school participates in the program. All you have to do is sign them up on the school caisse website - External link. This link opens in a new window..
You'll also find all kinds of tips, home activity ideas, games and informative videos to help you talk about money with your child.
When you apply for a Desjardins Foundation scholarship, you'll also be considered for the caisse's scholarship program. In 2024, we'll be awarding 15 scholarships, totalling $25,000, to student members who are CEGEP or university students.
Application period: March 1 to 31, 2024
