Desjardins Group officers and employees reaffirmed their commitment to the success of young people in Quebec and Ontario through myriad initiatives as part of Co-op Week 2017.
At Caisse Desjardins de D'Autray, we decided to show our support by handing out a total of $20,000 in scholarships to 40 of our young student members at an evening event hosted by comedian Dave Morgan.
Award winners and guests had an opportunity to visit information booths to learn more about the Desjardins Foundation and financial education and cast their vote for the Coup de cœur awards.
David Hervieux, president and founder of Devolutions in Lavaltrie, shared his inspiring story with the young audience and handed out perseverance scholarships.
Desjardins Foundation also awarded another $6,000 in scholarships to 4 caisse members. The lucky winners—Michael Bourdon-Tellier, Angéline Coutu-Drainville, Amélie Drainville and Francis Forget—were chosen from among more than 6,700 entries received by the Desjardins Foundation in 2017. Congratulations!
