Desjardins has a long tradition of involvement with local youth. This is why Caisse Desjardins du Centre de La Haute-Côte-Nord is so enthusiastic about the massive concerted effort being made by all Desjardins components toward youth outreach.
The caisse has revamped its scholarship program and this year, $4,000 will be awarded to selected eligible participants.

The Desjardins Youth Work Experience program sets up a partnership between the Desjardins Caisse, local businesses and the community to organize 180-hour internships that give 15- to 18-year-olds their first job experience.
The Carrefour jeunesse-emploi is responsible for recruiting businesses and young participants. It also does interviews to select the interns and supervises and evalutates the program. The internships are financed by the Caisse and the participating businesses.
Caisse Desjardins du Centre de La Haute-Côte-Nord also contributes to the Desjardins Foundation, which awards over a half million dollars in scholarships each year.
