Please visit the new page to apply.
Join the 2022 SCORE National Chapter of the Year. We need experienced business professionals to mentor people who want to start their own for-profit or non-profit business or have a business that needs assistance. Mentor virtually or in person.
For over 50 years, SCORE has served as America’s premier source of free business mentoring and education.
As a resource partner of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), SCORE has helped more than 11 million entrepreneurs through mentoring, workshops and educational resources since 1964. Today we are the largest volunteer organization in the country helping small businesses every day. Every SCORE chapter depends on the talent and time of volunteers to help entrepreneurs achieve their dreams of small business ownership. You will meet interesting people who have the desire to start and grow their own businesses.
A SCORE small business mentor is an adviser who helps individuals and small businesses, both for profit and non-profit, reach their goals. Mentors provide free business advice and education to aspiring entrepreneurs and existing business owners. Mentors provide advice virtually, by phone and email, or use our main office in downtown Cleveland, branch offices in Painesville, Kent State Geauga County, Ashtabula, Lorain & LCCC Elyria and Norwalk, or meet clients at mutually convenient locations.
As a mentor, you’ll help clients solve problems, make businesses more efficient, and assist with developing long-term business plans. Additionally, you may discover new sources of insight and knowledge to help your own business and leadership style. Teaching others how to manage people or projects, along with illustrating ways to succeed in other aspects of business, could inspire you to continue with your own professional growth-all of this while helping your local community.
The ideal mentor is empathetic, flexible, and loves connecting people to the right resources. Mentors often have significant experience within their field, excellent communication skills, and the ability to dedicate a few hours a week. Opportunities are virtual or meet your clients at a convenient location for both your client and you.
Apply today if you have expertise in any business topic, including but not limited to marketing, finance and accounting, management, technology, strategy, websites, social media, etc.
