Medora Volunteer Program
Thanks for your interest in the TRMF Volunteer Program.
Applications for the 2021 Season open on November 13, 2020!
Since our humble beginning in 1998, volunteers have been crucial in sustaining and promoting the exponential growth of the Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation (TRMF) and keeping Harold's dream and visions for Medora alive.
His dreams and passion for this once dusty little cow town began years before and remain the driving force behind all we do. You can read more about Harold, Sheila, TRMF, and Medora here.
Volunteers are an integral part of the Foundation and its operation. We could not do what we do in Medora without our volunteers. From inventory and painting to planting flowers, greeting guests at the Medora Musical, and more! Volunteers help us accomplish so much -- and their smiles are just contagious! Many come back time and again and most even become Annual Members or Donors of TRMF!
This past summer, the Covid-19 pandemic presented many challenges for all involved in TRMF. However, with planning, a slow start and conscientious actions, our volunteers and employees produced a tremendous summer for our public. Medora became a respite for so many to find entertainment, fun, joy, peace and healing at a time when little of that was available anywhere else.
Volunteers and success just go together. This year’s volunteers deserve a big “THANK YOU” for making the summer of 2020 go so well. But that success was due, in part, to all the past volunteers who gave their time and energy year after year to build such a strong program that could overcome difficult times.
Now it is time to look forward to 2021.
We learned so much from our experiences this summer and I know we can make 2021 even better. The volunteer program remains strong and steady and I am glad you interested in becoming part of this great group.

Our Volunteers Are Great!
It is important to understand the way in which the volunteer program operates and the role each volunteer plays in the program. This information is helpful for the application process so that you can best choose the type of volunteering for your unique skills and interests!
To find out more about the TRMF Volunteer Program and to prepare for your application, please take time to explore all of the volunteer pages to discover when and where might be the best fit for you!
Start with the “Volunteering At A Glance” link and there you will find a guide for reviewing the qualities that make a great volunteer. These qualities, found in a mix of new and “veteran” volunteers from diverse geographical locations, with unique skills, knowledge, talents, and experiences, are key factors for your success.
The program really has something for everyone -- young, and young at heart -- to experience the "magic of Medora," where TR once said, "the romance of my life began." Because of friends like you, Medora continues to be North Dakota’s #1 tourist destination.
If you have any questions not answered on this site, please feel free to call us anytime.
