Students must report their eight hours of community service to tnAchieves prior to the deadline for each semester the student is eligible for Tennessee Promise Funding. Visit the tnAchieves website for complete information regarding community service. For instructions on reporting hours please go to "How to Submit Service Hours to tnAchieves."
Community service is time contributed to a non-profit or public service organization. The community should be benefiting from the work you do. Students are also encouraged to complete their community service in their career field of interest to gain experience in that profession.
