Next Generation Leaders

TMF Impacts 250,000 Youth through Character Education

“‘If Not Me, Then Who…’ means if I see something that needs to be done and no one is doing it, I need to be a leader and I need to help do it."


Since our founding more than a decade ago, TMF has committed itself to empowering veterans like Marine Erik Shepard & families of the fallen to inspire youth to live with character through leadership & selfless service. We are proud to announce our Character Does Matter initiative has impacted 250,000 Spartan youth from around the country. We invite you to listen to them, like the Leaders of the Pack Club at Wakefield Middle School in Raleigh, NC.
