Youth

Desjardins has a long tradition of involvement with local youth. This is why Caisse populaire Desjardins de Saint-Raymond–Sainte-Catherine 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:

  • School caisse
  • Student caisse
  • All the local elementary and secondary schools
  • $21,000 in scholarships
  • A youth services cooperative
  • Maison des jeunes de Sainte-Catherine
  • Several sports teams

The school caisse

Your caisse has been offering this service across its territory for several years. Thanks to this program, young students learn the value of money and consumer goods, as well as the importance of settings savings goals and meeting financial commitments. In addition to having the chance to win prizes at Christmas and at the end of the school year, participating students are eligible to a $10 member dividend when they make 7 or more deposits over the school year.

The student caisse

For the past 25 years, École secondaire Louis-Jobin de Saint-Raymond has been offering the student caisse service to its students and staff. It’s a great way for them to experience the benefits of cooperation and to share its values within a school setting. Every year, everyone who’s made a deposit has a chance to win a laptop at the end of the school year.

A strong presence in elementary and secondary schools

Every year since December 2012, the caisse has donated $10 per student for sporting, cultural or educational activities to schools located on its territory. That’s an annual total of $25,000.

$21,000 awarded in scholarships annually

Every year, the caisse organizes a special evening where 421,000 in scholarships is awarded to students pursuing post-secondary studies.

A youth services cooperative

The caisse has been contributing to the Coopérative jeunesse de services Saint-Raymond – Saint-Léonard since 2011. Thanks to the $5,000 donated every year, a group of 15 young people can be trained by 2 facilitators to offer services to residents, while learning how a cooperative works. And since 2018, the city of Sainte-Catherine has had its very own youth services cooperative.

Maison des jeunes de Sainte-Catherine

The Maison des jeunes de Sainte-Catherine-de-la-Jacques-Cartier is a long-time partner of Desjardins. Among other initiatives, the Ma terrasse au soleil project made it possible to build a terrace equipped with a BBQ, patio furniture and outdoor games. This gives the 30 young people who visit the house a comfortable place where they can cook and hang out together, judgement-free.

Sports teams and other places young people visit

Minor league hockey, dance troupes, the Saint-Raymond arena, Ski Saint-Raymond, Club de patinage artistique de Saint-Raymond, soccer clubs, Vallée Bras-du-Nord, day camps, sailing clubs, etc. There are several places visited by our youth and supported by Desjardins. At Desjardins, we’re committed to working together to help young people thrive!
