Youth

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

Your caisse is proud to support the following projects or organizations:

Young Intern Director program

The program allows young people aged 18 to 30 to become familiar with the role of director through a 1-year internship on a caisse board of directors, where they can sit on working committees and task forces, propose new ways to improve services to young people, and finally, contribute to the development of the caisse and community while building a network of personal and professional contacts.

To be eligible for the program, aspiring candidates must:

  • Be age 18 to 30
  • Be a member of the Desjardins caisse where they want to do their internship
  • Make a serious commitment to attending board of directors meetings and activities
  • Commit in writing to respect the laws, by-laws, and rules of ethics that govern the caisse

Scholarships

Each year, the Caisse awards scholarships to graduating students from École secondaire Mgr-A.M.-Parent and École Saint-Edmond. Desjardins scholarships are also awarded to students at Cégep Édouard-Montpetit, Cégep de Valleyfield and Champlain College, and to winners of Desjardins Foundation contests.

Créavenir

Designed to support young entrepreneurs between 18 and 35, the Créavenir Rive-Sud program helps finance projects that don't qualify for traditional commercial financing. Without requiring the usual down payments and guarantees, participating caisses help young entrepreneurs create working capital or provide them with an interest-free loan repayable as of the second year only.

School caisse

To help introduce children to sound savings habits at an early age, Caisse Desjardins Charles-LeMoyne actively supports the educational school caisse services at the following schools: Maurice-Duplessis, des Quatre-Saisons and de Saint-Joseph.
