Desjardins has a long tradition of involvement with local youth. This is why Caisse Desjardins du Lac-Memphrémagog 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

An exceptional opportunity to take part in the life of the biggest financial cooperative in Canada!

Are you between 18 and 30 years old and looking for a great experience as a director at your caisse? It’s possible!

The Young Intern Director Program gives you the chance to complete a 2-year practical internship on a caisse board of directors. By working with the board, you’ll become familiar with the role of a director (without voting rights) by:

  • participating in meetings and discussions related to the caisse and its orientations
  • proposing new ideas to serve younger members
  • representing members of the community
  • getting the caisse more involved in the community
  • helping to build and implement a strategic plan and business plan
  • honing your strategic skills and knowledge through a specific training program

A unique experience

The Young Intern Director Program gives you a chance to experience something new and build a network of personal and professional contacts in the largest cooperative financial group in Canada. It also helps you prepare to be an elected director on a board of directors.


You must:

  • be between the ages of 18 and 30
  • be a member of Caisse Desjardins du Lac-Memphrémagog in good standing
  • not be an employee or director of a caisse, the federation or other Desjardins entity
  • commit to regularly attending board meetings (generally once a month) and board of director activities
  • respect the legal and regulatory framework and the Desjardins Code of Professional Conduct
  • authorize the caisse to do a credit and security check to confirm your eligibility as a caisse director
  • fill out the application form and successfully complete the selection interview

Encouraging students to stay in school

The Memphrémagog MRC school drop-out rate is alarmingly high, which worries the entire community. Caisse Desjardins du Lac-Memphrémagog established a fund to create programs that encourage students to stay in school. We spoke with a group of caisse members to confirm this as a priority.

Since 2007, the caisse has paid $487,500 into the fund.
