TSTT members meet regularly in the high school and may take part in TSTT excursions such as college visits, career and leadership based workshops, and conferences. Soon they will begin weekly tutoring sessions with middle school students and students who speak English as a Second Language.

TSTT students can qualify for a minimum 50 percent tuition scholarship from its growing roster of partner colleges.
