Desjardins has a long tradition of involvement with local youth. This is why Caisse Desjardins de La Nouvelle-Beauce is so enthusiastic about the massive concerted effort being made by all Desjardins components toward youth outreach.
An enhanced youth program for our young members!
In 2007, the Caisse's officers decided to create an enhanced youth program to provide more support to young people who are heading towards the job market, financial independence and all forms of success.
Today, our caisse focuses more than ever on youth to ensure that tomorrow's leaders are in good financial health. This program was reviewed and the most important elements for this clientele were kept. Many procedures were changed or improved to enhance performance and profitability and give our young members the best support throughout their financial life.
The Caisse Desjardins de la Nouvelle-Beauce scholarship program is exclusively for young members of the Caisse. It provides financial support to young people. The Caisse is proud to support the development of expertise and knowledge, job creation and the social involvement of our future leaders.
L'inscription au programme de bourses 2021 se fera exclusivement du 1er au 31 mars 2021.
Registration for the 2021 scholarship program will take place from March 1 to 31, 2021.
To support young people in their studies, Caisse Desjardins de La Nouvelle-Beauce and Caisse Desjardins de Beauce-Centre have awarded $25,000 in scholarships to 30 young local caisse members.
The draw took place on Tuesday, June 9, at 11:00 a.m. in our offices at Caisse Desjardins de La Nouvelle-Beauce by Daniel Ruel, General Manager of Caisse Desjardins de La Nouvelle-Beauce (left of photo) and Martin Chateauneuf, General Manager of Caisse Desjardins de Beauce-Centre (right of photo). Others were present to witness the draw. Please note that our youth event was cancelled due to COVID-19.

Congratulations to all our winners!
Student members applied for financial aid from Caisse Desjardins de La Nouvelle-Beauce. As the caisse's donation and sponsorship program doesn't accept applications for individuals, the caisse held a draw for 2 grants of $500 each among people who applied for financial aid during the year. The grants were awarded to young people who excel in academics, sports or as part of a cultural or humanitarian project.
During Co-op Week, the 2 scholarship recipients were announced.
Congratulations to Dayle Vachon, a 13-year old entrepreneur in sports equipment installation. With this financial support, he'll be able to purchase equipment to grow his young company.
Congratulations also to Marc-André Fortin, a student at Université Laval who participated in a 3-week international basketball competition which took place in Toronto, Finland and Italy.
