IDF Base Option
Perfect for the adventurers among us, this "team" program offers an insider's view of Israel. You work on an Israel Defense Forces (IDF) base performing non-combat civilian support duties such as packing medical supplies; repairing machinery and equipment; building fortifications; and cleaning, painting, and maintaining the base. Working alongside soldiers, base employees, and other volunteers, you will help Israel shoulder its defense burden.
You are housed in barracks with fellow volunteers, enjoy 3 kosher meals a day, and wear IDF work clothes. The Sunday to Thursday workweek includes cultural programs in the evening, and tours when possible.
Weekends are spent off the base. You can travel in Israel, visit with friends and relatives, or hang out with your new VFI buddies. No-cost army hostel accommodations and reduced price hotel rates are usually available.
