Serve Short-Term with WEC

COVID-19 Update

Due to the Covid-19 virus, we did not send any short-termers out in 2020. However, we are taking applications now so that participants will be ready to go forward as countries open up.

Proof of a full vaccine for Covid may be required by some countries to get in so think about that as you prepare to travel overseas.
