What does sustainable mean?

Some think sustainability means you recycle, reduce energy, and are more efficient in operations. But at Tanglewood, we define sustainability differently. All of the efforts toward energy conservation and recycling are necessary but…

What is the goal of sustainability?

We believe to be sustainable means belonging to a vibrant, thriving community that will be a sustainable, cultural environment for our children and our children’s children.

What are we doing to accomplish that?

The Advanced Manufacturing Professionals (AMP) Program created through our 501c3 Untangled Minds seeks to help students acquire the skills and perspective every business owner wants to see in their employees. Bundled into a three semester course, the AMP program’s primary focus is to develop students who (1) Take ownership and initiative, (2) Seek to understand what owners and managers of a company are passionate about, and (3) See and do what is required without having to be asked or told.

Does that sound like an employee you would like to hire?

It is these skills wrapped around the technical skill component along with the strong partnership of community members, community businesses, and education that advances student skills, perspective, and ways of thinking.

After all, to establish a sustainable community, we first must develop a sustainable workforce for our growing business partners.
