Community service is an integral part of being a T3 Scholar and becoming a leader in the Tarrant County community. Community service that you have completed for other organizations (i.e., National Honor’s Society, Phi Theta Kappa, etc.) can count towards your T3 Community Service hours. Here's some other in-person and virtual ideas below.
