ORGANIZATION: SCORE North Coast

  • 1 person is interested

In our communities, minority, women, and veteran entrepreneurs face unique barriers to business success. At SCORE, we’re working to change that by removing those obstacles and providing personalized support to everyone who has an idea and a desire to succeed in business. SCORE mentoring is free and confidential.

As a mentor you will use your business knowledge and experience to help local clients solve problems, increase business efficiency, and assist with developing long-term business plans. Mentors often have significant experience within their field, excellent communication skills, and the ability to dedicate a few hours a week.

As a Subject Matter Expert (SME), you would use your specific industry and functional expertise to provide specialized support and advice to assist clients and their SCORE mentor with topics needing a deeper dive.

Topics where minority, women, and veteran-owned businesses need support include (but are not limited to): government contracting, minority business enterprise certification, finance, accounting, human resources management, website design, development, and webmaster skills; social media and digital marketing skills; taxation and specialized finance skills; IT infrastructure and cloud computing understanding and advice.

If you have a few hours per month and want to share your specialized expertise with a local entrepreneurs and small business owners, become a SCORE Mentor or Subject Matter Expert.

SCORE is a nonprofit resource partner of the U.S. Small Business Administration that helps aspiring and existing entrepreneurs succeed. Every year, our chapter's volunteers help hundreds of entrepreneurs and small business owners achieve their dreams of success. Volunteering is a way for you to give back, network with business experts, and share your knowledge.

Join SCORE today to make a meaningful difference in your local economy. Go to score.org to volunteer.
