Caisse Mem­phrem­a­gog Money for school suc­cess

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

The Caisse Des­jardins du Lac-Mem­phrem­a­gog has do­nated $67,500 to the Fonds pour la per­se­ver­ance sco­laire Des­jardins. Dur­ing the last gen­eral meet­ing, the mem­bers of this Caisse voted in favour of a col­lec­tive re­fund of $450,000 be­ing added to the Fonds d’aide au de­vel­oppe­ment du mi­lieu. The di­rec­tors of the Caisse then de­cided to re­serve $67,500 for school per­se­ver­ance.

This con­tri­bu­tion shows how the Caisse would like to play an im­por­tant role in the fight to keep chil­dren in school un­til they grad­u­ate and in the pro­mo­tion of aca­demic suc­cess. Be­cause of these funds for school per­se­ver­ance, the Caisse has con­trib­uted to more than a dozen projects for youth in the Mem­phrem­a­gog MRC.

“We are aware of the prob­lems re­lated to school dropouts, but we are not the spe­cial­ists. So we have de­vel­oped

the Caisse’s a part­ner­ship with the Ta­ble je­unesse so­cio-economique the co­or­di­na­tor Mem­phrem­a­gog to an­a­lyze and treat the re­quests of fi­nanc­ing. Fur­ther­more, we are sure that the projects sup­ported re­spond to the needs of the community and we avoid the dou­bling of ser­vices,” com­mented Em­i­lie Cot­tineau, the Caisse’s spokesper­son.
