About Us
Welcome to the Central PA SCORE Chapter

Welcome to Central Pennsylvania SCORE Chapter 0618. Our service area is primarily Centre, Clearfield, Huntingdon, and Mifflin counties, however, we do provide some services for people in surrounding counties.

Central PA SCORE provides free and confidential business mentoring and advice via a variety of ways including person-to-person, email, or by phone.  We also offer Business Improvement Workshops including Business Basics and Beyond the Basics, plus other business-related activities. Some of these may be given in conjunction with other organizations and agencies, such as local chambers, the SBDC, and others. Our 25 trained and experienced volunteers also include interns from Penn State University's College of Business and other resourceful people to support our mentors/counselors. Our members follow a strict Code of Ethics and Conduct and confidentiality is paramount.

Our SCORE chapter was chartered in 1991. We serve our clients without regard to age, ancestry, color, disability or handicap, national origin, race, religious creed, sex, sexual orientation, or veteran status. SCORE is a resource partner of the Small Business Administration.

We are also actively looking for more mentors and resource partners.   Put some of that knowledge and experience to good use by helping others.  The time commitment is tailored to your availability.   Contact us to see what it's all about.
