To help introduce children to sound savings habits at an early age, the Caisse Desjardins de Beauce-Centre actively supports the educational school caisse services at the d'Youville, Lambert , Louis-Albert-Vachon, Sainte-Famille and Arc-en-ciel schools.
Children who made 7 deposits or more (between May 1, 2018, and April 30, 2019) each received a special youth dividend. This year's youth dividend of $10 was deposited in the children's respective school caisse account on July 2, 2019. It's our way of recognizing their efforts and fostering their sense of responsibility.
For the 2018-2019 school year, $2,040 was paid out in youth dividends.
Signing children up for school caisse is guiding them toward financial independence.
