VFI - How Long Can I Stay?

From the VFI website: "The standard work commitment we encourage is 3 weeks. Volunteers must begin a work program on Sunday or Monday during the year, (program ends on Thursday), except for the holiday black-out dates." In my case, since it was a long flight from the USA, I wanted to stay a month. So I stayed 3 weeks at one base, and 2 weeks at another.

At my first base, we had several volunteers that were staying for only 2 weeks. You can't believe how quickly their time to leave came, and they were all very sad that there time was up. The next time I volunteer for Sar El, I plan on staying 6 weeks that way, I will stay the full time at a couple of bases.

I understood that my being allowed to stay the for my second base assignment, was dependant on me being a positive and productive on the first base, and that I was one that did not cause any problems. It only makes sense, why would Sar El want to host someone that was causing problems.
