Deployment of three cooperative cafes in high schools in East Montreal

YMCAs of Québec - May 08 2023

Montreal, May 8 2023

The YMCAs of Québec, in partnership with the Caisse Desjardins de Mercier-Est–Anjou and the Caisse Desjardins du Centre-est de Montréal, have opened three cooperative cafés in high schools in Montréal East, allowing thirty students to participate in their first entrepreneurship project.

Visited by about 100 students per day, the cafés also act as internship opportunities helping young people develop their employability.  These projects promote academic perseverance and youth engagement all while offering a first job experience.

Bravo to our cooperators and thank you to our partners for supporting youth leadership.
