Education and youth are priorities for Caisse Desjardins de Wendake.
Our role is to inform young people about Desjardins products and services developed especially for them. To do so, we hold educational lectures at various schools, including Wahta’ elementary school and Centre de développement de la formation et de la main-d’œuvre (CDFM) huron wendat. The lectures help young people determine which products and services are best suited to their needs. Students also learn more about their current financial situation, budgeting, sound credit management, indebtedness and how to avoid it, saving for a special project and much more.
Young people are invited to make an appointment with a caisse advisor to develop a financial plan. Our advisors can pinpoint their needs and meet their expectations.
Caisse Desjardins de Wendake has a long tradition of involvement with local youth. This is why it is so enthusiastic about the massive concerted effort being made by all Desjardins components toward youth outreach.
Created in 1965, the school caisse program has always kept up with the times. To help children start developing sound savings habits at a young age, Caisse Desjardins de Wendake actively supports the educational school caisse service offered at Wahta’ elementary school.

Association des femmes diplômées des universités de Québec (AFDU Québec) formed a partnership with Caisse Desjardins de Wendake a few years ago to award 4 scholarships of $250 and 1 scholarship of $500, all of which are for CDFM huron Wendat de Wendake students. The scholarships are always much appreciated and encourage women to pursue their studies until they graduate.
Education is vital to help young First Nations women become aware of their true value, improve their social standing, take control of their lives and become role models for the next generation.
