Community Involvement

Making a Difference in our Community!

Teleco has developed Mission, Vision and Core value statements that include the goal that we contribute positively to the community in which we live and work.

Teleco supports its employees by allowing each employee up to a maximum of 20 hours per calendar year to volunteer or otherwise participate in their chosen community activities during the work day.  There are many community organizations that need mentors/volunteers to provide their services and Teleco employees are encouraged to participate.

In addition, Teleco as a group contributes and supports the following initiatives.
