WHAT IS MENTORING?Mentors

Mentoring is when an experienced leader provides advice to another to help them succeed. That’s what SCORE is all about.

SCORE volunteers provide the specific advice and resources you need through customized, 1-on-1 or team mentoring. Our mentors work with you to identify opportunities and avoid threats to your success. With SCORE, you can feel confident knowing you have an experienced resource available for simple questions or complicated strategy development.
 

Last year, we helped create over 56,000 new businesses and helped over 107,000 businesses increase revenue. The next success story can be yours.
