The Desjardins Youth Work Experience program

The main goal of the Desjardins Youth Work Experience program is to help young people become more employable in the future by giving them a chance to learn new skills through:

  • a first stimulating experience in the job market or a first rewarding work experience
  • training about attitudes on the job and the basics in job search techniques (mock interviews, writing a resumé, etc.)
  • an awareness-raising workshop on cooperation and financial management
The program also:
  • makes studies relevant by giving young people real-life work experiences, so they get a glimpse of potential career paths and are encouraged to pursue their studies
  • gives young people a sense of belonging to their region and prevents an eventual exodus
  • promotes networking between young people and local businesses and organizations
  • contributes to the development of participating businesses and organizations by helping them hire an extra employee for the summer
  • supports non-profit organizations
  • allows young people to enjoy a rewarding experience as members of the community
