Over the past 50 years, SCORE’s Maine network of business experts has helped guide entrepreneurs. Every day, our volunteers help Maine small businesses start, grow and achieve new levels of success. These volunteers are our lifeblood and the reason for that success.
SCORE volunteers aren’t just anyone. They’re successful business owners and executives with real-world experience in every sector. Some have worked at Fortune 500 companies. Others have built their own businesses from the ground up. And each one of them knows how good it feels to help others achieve their dreams.
We know your time is valuable and you have a variety of skills to share. That’s why we offer total flexibility when it comes to volunteering. Share your business knowledge as a lead mentor and work with clients.
Take advantage of easy onboarding.
When you’re ready to start, we’ll give you the tools you need. Between our orientation and mentoring certification program, you’ll learn about SCORE’s mission and services, plus get tips on what makes a good volunteer.
There’s no way to quantify how good it feels to help others. Sharing business knowledge you’ve accrued over the years gives you an extra boost of pride and purpose. And you’ll feel even better knowing you helped someone achieve success.
Our team is currently operating virtually, to ensure the safety of our volunteers and community.
