#GotYourBack to school campaign donations to be doubled by Desjardins

When it comes to academic success, ensuring children have all the school supplies they need is only one piece of the puzzle. Providing homework assistance to children whose parents can’t help with their homework, tutoring programs tailored to the child’s needs, mentoring those who are isolated, and offering after-school programs to help identify at-risk teens are all critical elements needed to support academic success.

This is why West Island Community Shares is turning to the public for their support this summer during their #GotYourBack to school campaign. This means assisting West Island youths through providing;

  • school supplies,

  • homework assistance,

  • offering mental health support,

  • reaching out to at-risk youth, and

  • offering tutoring programs.

All of these programs are offered by several community organizations (see below) and are designed to meet the youth where they are, be it at school, at home, at a drop-in youth center, or anywhere else we’ll find them. But these organizations need your help to maintain and grow their services.

During these times of high inflation, low-income families will definitely feel the pain of this year’s back-to-school season. Caisse Desjardins de l’Ouest-de-l’Île will be doubling all donations made to West Island Community Shares throughout the summer until September 15th.
