ORGANIZATION: SCORE Central Coast Business Mentors

  • 14 people are interested

SCORE Central Coast is a chapter of a national nonprofit serving small businesses in Santa Cruz and Monterey Counties. Our clients represent a diverse community with many woman and Hispanic owned businesses, as well as many other business owners of varied backgrounds and interests. Some clients are in the idea stage, while others are experienced entrepreneurs. We are looking for mentors who reflect this diversity, and are willing to spend time with business owners to guide them through the complexities of business startup, growth,
and expansion.

If you have:
a) a passion to give-back to the small business community, while also working with a business-
minded, experienced, and dedicated cadre of volunteers;

b) an understanding of business and management systems;

c) problem solving skills; and,

d) an ability to communicate ideas and information, without criticism, and that will enable your
clients to find their own solutions;

-then SCORE will be a good fit for you!

If you can spare about 8 hours/mo. you will be rewarded with:
a) feelings of accomplishment through the mentoring of clients and contributing to community

b) making new friends;

c) the enjoyment of working with colleagues to solve problems; and,

d) learning new things from clients and fellow volunteers.

If you are interested or have questions, contact: central.coast@scorevolunteer.org or fill out
