You will be required to complete 80 hours, since you have all your other course work completed. After you have completed 80 hours, any additional hours can be used for Community Service. 

    Below is the Spring 2020 Internship Schedule. Sites and interns work out their specific schedule with the goal of achieving 6 to 8 hours a week. Students and sites work together to determine holiday and spring break schedule. A total of 60 to 80 hours is needed for the class.
