Obviously, there will be some weeks that more than 20 hours could be required, but other weeks when less than 20 hours will be needed. The internship has built in flexibility so less work can be done during busy times at the seminary. Comp time can be taken to make up for weeks when more than 20 hours is worked. (i.e. in the summer, if 60 hours are put in for one week, that opens up a 2 week “comp time” break).
