SCORE: Volunteer and Make a Difference

Published December 16, 2020

In times of uncertainty, when everything around us feels unsteady, volunteering is said to be good not just for the community being served but for those who give back!
How can that be, especially in a topsy-turvy year like 2020?

According to Forbes, volunteering can help improve your daily life and:

  • Decrease anxiety by spending quality time helping others
  • Develop, refine and build new professional skills
  • Increase confidence and leadership opportunities
  • Network with other business experts and strengthen relationships

SCORE Volunteers are well aware of the power of giving back and so are the small business owners and entrepreneurs who count on them. 

Consider a unique volunteer opportunity that will give you a chance to share your business knowledge and expertise with our local community.

As a SCORE Volunteer, you can develop new skills with continuing education opportunities, grow your professional network and organize your time to fit with your existing commitments.

SCORE Chester and Delaware Counties are currently expanding their team of talented business experts: men and women, retired or working.
