Since 2004, the Caisse Desjardins de Saint-Hubert has been helping its young members get their first summer job with the Desjardins Youth Work Experience program.
The Carrefour jeunesse-emploi Saint-Hubert organizes the whole program. In spring, it promotes the program among young people, finds Saint-Hubert employers to participate, does interviews, selects the best candidates for the positions available and follows up throughout the summer.
Thanks to the program, a dozen young people will get a first summer job as soon as school ended. The Caisse will make an appointment with the new employee, who can come alone or with a parent to meet with a Personal Finance Advisor - Youth Representative. This advisor will go over some important subjects for a first-time employee: savings, credit and how to make a budget.
The Caisse invites businesses in the Saint-Hubert territory to participate in the program by offering a summer job (30 hours a week for 6 weeks). The Caisse will contribute by reimbursing participating employers 50% of the employee's wages.
Some conditions apply. For more information, young people and businesses can contact the Carrefour jeunesse-emploi Saint-Hubert by calling 450-678-7644 or by visiting the Carrefour jeunesse-emploi's website - This link will open in a new window. (in French only).
Each year, Caisse Desjardins de Saint-Hubert seeks intern officers to sit on the Board of Directors and Board of Supervision. For you, this is an opportunity to actively contribute to the development of your financial cooperative, represent younger members and acquire certified experience.
Intern officers take part in regular Board of Directors and Board of Supervision meetings along with elected officers to assess various topics submitted, Intern officers do not, however, have voting rights. Internships are for a minimum 1-year term, and meetings take place once a month.
My experience as an intern officer was a real asset to my job training process. I encourage all students who want to work in a management role one day to sign up for the Young Intern Officer Program. The program is also in line with Desjardins's commitment to support young people.
– Vanessa Sylvestre, Intern Officer, 2009-2010 and Director since 2011
