Visionary founders. Leaders of character. A team committed to the TRMF Mission.
We do our best to live our vision, mission, and values each day and to teach them to those young people who spend a #BestSummerOfTheirLife with us. You’ll find them throughout orientation materials, in meetings and trainings, and shown throughout the Life Skills Center where so many of our people spend important parts of their day.
Through the contributions and teamwork of our Board of Directors, a full time staff of 45 team members, 350+ seasonal, student, and international employees, over 600 summer volunteers, and financial backing from generous supporters, all of us work toward the common goal of helping more people become inspired by the Badlands the way Theodore Roosevelt was, Harold after him, and millions more since.
