NATIONAL BANK INVESTS $1 MILLION TO SUPPORT ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT

Launch of the 3rd edition of the One for Youth program

National Bank is proud to launch the 3rd edition of its One for Youth program. This year’s focus will be on projects that develop entrepreneurial spirit. In total, an additional $1 million will be invested to help tomorrow’s adults reach their full potential. This amount is in addition to the $12 million the Bank has earmarked for youth in the past five years.

“Fueling a passion for business in young people and helping them to power their ideas is a priority for National Bank. It’s a commitment that is directly related to our founding mission,” said Yann Jodoin, Senior Vice-President, Client Strategy, Marketing and Branding. “Business creation and innovation are vital to the development of lasting prosperity. National Bank is very proud to be able to contribute to this,” he added, encouraging business and community leaders to get involved in spreading the word about the One for Youth program in their networks.

Starting today, and until November 6, non-profit organizations and elementary and high schools across Canada are invited to submit projects that will encourage young people to develop their entrepreneurial spirit: conferences, mentoring programs, competitions, etc. Each recipient could receive up to $15,000 in financial support.
