Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
SCORE is the nation’s largest network of volunteer, expert business mentors with more than 10,000 volunteers in 300 chapters. 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. Our approximately 100 chapter members share their business knowledge and experience by providing free counseling to anyone who is operating a small business or thinking about starting one. In addition, we provide free and low cost workshops and seminars on topics vital to non-profits and small businesses alike. While the Fox Valley SCORE chapter has counseling offices throughout the western suburbs of Chicago, covering the 8 counties of DuPage, Kane, Will, DeKalb, Kendall, McHenry, Winnebago and Boone, a meeting with a client can take place wherever coffee is served. Fox Valley SCORE operates throughout our territory.
Volunteers contribute about 10 hours a month, doing counseling online or face-to-face, presenting workshops, facilitating round tables, and maintaining relationships with Chambers, banks and community leaders. Other member activities involve serving on committees for fund raising, technology, marketing, client workshops, member training, etc. All volunteers honor a code of ethics to insure confidentiality and avoid conflicts of interest.
