Helping educate people about the cooperative movement is one of Caisse Desjardins d'Ahuntsic's missions, which is why we're pleased to support Coopérative Jeunesse de Services d'Ahuntsic.
The goal of this youth coop is to promote awareness among young people of their collective abilities and responsibilities while adapting to their needs and aspirations.
During summer 2014, 15 young volunteer cooperators created the business, offering their services to the community, including housework, landscaping, babysitting, window washing and other jobs. Not only did they work hard, they also learned how a cooperative is structured and operated.
The young people were supervised by 2 specially trained counselors but organized everything themselves: Board of Directors, executive council, finance committee, marketing committee, human resources committee and more. They were fully involved in every step of their exciting project.
This first work experience gave them an opportunity to learn rigour and the importance of customer service, and was a valuable springboard for their future professional aspirations.
Caisse Desjardins d'Ahuntsic wishes to congratulate the youths for their efforts and is proud to be a partner in their success.
