Caisse populaire Desjardins du Haut-Saint-Laurent also contributes to Desjardins Foundation, which awards over $500,000 in scholarships each year.
To help introduce children to sound savings habits at an early age, the Caisse actively supports the educational school caisse services at the following schools:
If students make 7 deposits or more over the year, they receive youth dividends in the amount of $10, which are deposited directly to their accounts. This way we reward them for their effort and promote their sense of responsibility.
Several lectures have been offered to young people in our area to help them pursue their financial education. One of our youth advisors, Marie-Eve Leblanc, gave the lectures at Nouvelle École de Beauharnois and Maison des jeunes de Beauharnois. The goal of the lectures was to raise young people's awareness of savings, credit, automation, and most of all, the importance of making a budget.
