Having been a SCORE volunteer mentor since 2008 working with many SCORE small business clients and other volunteers - It is a rewarding experience for all. Assisting new businesses, or established businesses seeking help, it is great to offer skills, experience to enable others to explore and launch their ideas and energies into the community. SCORE volunteers can bring their business experience and can also work with other volunteers to co-mentor small businesses by collaborating to answer questions. Small business start-up can seem overwhelming to those wanting to start one, however, SCORE volunteers can ease that concern and process.
