The Principles of The 3 E’s
Tabernacle Community Development Corporation programs are based on the “Principles of The 3 E’s” —
Knowledge is Power: The importance of furthering education (college, technical, or trade school) and its impact on one’s future career path is stressed. The goal is to mentor and motivate individuals to become life achievers through education.
When individuals take control of their life and live it with purpose, it’s a life one can be proud of. This component includes knowledge of restoring and empowering one’s life through vision, mission, and goals. “Living Your Life at Its Best” applies techniques on how to improve communication skills through true conversation and common courtesies of etiquette and manners.
Awareness of personal financial management as well as budgeting tools increases future planning, financial security and sustainability. The focus is on components of wealth management and home ownership. With literacy of finances and budgets, individuals can make life altering changes today and long into the future.
