• The CEC at Tamiscal's core values represent the deepest beliefs and highest aspirations of our organization and our mission. Every day we strive to ensure that these values reflect our culture of idealism, inspire our actions, and inform all of our decisions. They serve as our guide, and they constantly empower us to stay true to ourselves through changing times as we work to achieve our mission of keeping our students in school and on track to graduation. Here are some of the values that we work into our everyday lives. 


    1. Service to a Cause Greater Than Self

    We dedicate ourselves to addressing shared civic challenges through unified action.

    The CEC believes that service is a personal decision to dedicate one’s time, energy, and effort to a cause greater than oneself and to change the lives of others. It’s also a way to bring together diverse individuals who share a common goal while empowering them to work together. It’s through the power of service that we, as a nation, have been able to overcome seemingly impossible obstacles and ultimately build a better future for all of us. That’s why at the CEC we make a collective effort to always demonstrate the power of service as a way to make a transformational change for everyone—from the students we serve, to the communities we’re in, to our nation as a whole.
