The Desjardins Awards were created to recognize leadership within the credit union movement on behalf of financial literacy for all ages. The recognition program considers all activities supporting the personal finance education of members and nonmembers, including, but not limited to, face-to-face teaching using proprietary materials and curricula such as the NEFE High School Financial Planning Program® (HSFPP) as well as financial literacy leadership efforts. Naming the award after Alphonse Desjardins emphasizes the movement's long-time commitment to youth, with it now being extended to the adult population as well. Besides founding the first credit unions in Canada and the U.S., Desjardins pioneered youth savings clubs and in-school credit unions, known as caisses scolaires.
