Volunteers are an integral part of the Theodore Roosevelt Medora 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!
If Medora is a special place to you—and if you want to connect to that special place in a whole new way—we’d love to hear from you.
Meet Lonnie Bonner, a TRMF volunteer of 15 years who overcame a stroke to return to Medora for another summer.
Meet Mike Johnson, a 15-year volunteer whose passion for Medora is simply contagious.
Your volunteer experience can take many shapes. Social butterfly? You’ll love in-season sessions of greeting guests across Medora. If you’re a green thumb, our flower crew might be just for you. And if you’re a born salesperson, you could become Medora’s number-one teddy bear seller. Click here to learn more about all of our volunteer seasons.
The Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation seeks a rich blend of new and returning volunteers. We look for geographical diversity, promoting a wide array of cultures and experience. We consider prior years of service and quality of past efforts. And we seek a blend of couples and singles that can be accommodated in our lodging facilities.
The more flexible and available you are, the more likely you are to be selected to volunteer.
You give so much to Medora, and we are so grateful. So it’s only appropriate that we can take care of you!
By volunteers and for volunteers, the Spirit of Work Lodge is an exclusive housing destination for those who generously give of their time and efforts to help Medora thrive. It’s a place where our volunteers can commune at the end of the day. And it’s just steps away from the Life Skills Center, which provides meals and more to our volunteer friends.
All meals are provided free of charge at the Life Skills Center cafeteria.
The window for Volunteer Applications for 2023 is now closed. The application for the summer cancellation waitlist will be available in late May.
