The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
SCORE mentors touch thousands of lives, generously sharing their knowledge and experience so that entrepreneurs can realize their dreams of business success. Men and women, retired and working, with significant business experience donate their time and talent to assist America's entrepreneurs. SCORE provides confidential one-to-one and team business mentoring and workshops and seminars at no cost.
Mentors come from a variety of occupations and backgrounds - accounting, marketing, legal, manufacturing - just to name a few! Many volunteer mentors have owned small businesses, others have worked for major firms, and others have had significant careers in government or not-for-profits.
SCORE Mentors share a belief that small business owners are more likely to succeed if they have a coach or mentor to guide them. If you would like to share your business expertise and give back to your community, consider becoming a SCORE mentor to:
Help small businesses that otherwise cannot afford expert level business mentoring
Mentor others to help them achieve personal and financial success
Learn by co-mentoring and involvement with fellow SCORE members
Attend social events that provide opportunities for friendship with fellow SCORE members
SCORE will provide you with the required training and support to become an effective mentor to small businesses.
