The Caisse Desjardins de Québec: a Pillar of the C-Vert Program in Saint-Roch!

Saint-Roch YMCA (Québec) - December 10 2020

Thanks to financial support from the Caisse Desjardins de Québec, the youth of Saint-Roch took the year 2020 head on by stepping up and carrying out community and environmental projects for their neighbourhood through the C-Vert program.

The teens planned and implemented several socially conscious projects, such as garbage collection, setting up bins to collect cigarette butts, creating homemade household products, spreading words of encouragement in three seniors’ residences during confinement, as well as leading workshops on food waste.

C-Vert is an urban ecology program designed to train young environmental leaders through hands-on experience in their community. Available to teens between the ages of 14 and 16, this program features workshops on the environment and ecology, outdoor excursions and community actions to promote sustainable development.

We are truly delighted to be working with Desjardins, a valued partner who contributes immensely to training young environmental leaders in our community!
