After a 42-year partnership with Sar-El, during which VFI recruited, processed and prepared thousands of Americans to volunteer on IDF bases, VFI’s focus has changed.

NEW for 2024!

Volunteers for Israel will bring you exciting new ‘Volun-Tour’ programs and rewarding new opportunities to Stand With Israel. In Israel.

VOLUNTEERS FOR ISRAEL is expanding its scope to include more of Israel’s rich volunteer opportunities for Americans who want to support Israel’s needs now and after the dark days of the current war.

Our new volunteer programs will be designed for both first-time and experienced travelers.  They will offer carefree, all-inclusive opportunities to volunteer and explore, led by professional Israeli guides. Your housing, food, transportation, and program costs will be included. Also included will be customized weekend touring to both well-known and less familiar (yet compelling) sites with our limited-size groups. 

VFI’s goal is to design ‘Volun-Touring’ that provides unique experiences and personal satisfaction along with meaningful service to Israel. We focus on the interests of adults and the finest experiences that our program partners can offer.

Volunteer programs under consideration are archaeology, humanitarian aid, emergency services, nature, education, medical support, nursing homes, agriculture, and more. 

VFI’s website is under construction. More information including detailed itineraries and costs will soon be available.
