SCORE: Searching for Volunteers

SCORE is looking for experienced business people who are interested in volunteering as mentors for America’s small businesses.

Like the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at the Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce, SCORE is also a resource partner of the US Small Business Administration (SBA). The SBDC is staffed by certified full-time employees who offer no-cost one-on-one business consulting, complimentary seminars and training, assistance with small business loans and technical assistance.

SCORE is a team of 10,000+ volunteers nationwide who share their business experience, talent, and expertise (at no-cost) with the small business community. Including:

a. Subject Matter Experts – who have focused expertise to co-mentor alongside one of SCORE’s certified mentors. Typical skills include legal, accounting, human resources, intellectual property, marketing, building a brand, eCommerce, buying/selling a business, etc.

b. Mentors – who have general business knowledge including entrepreneurial, operational, and multi-functional skills (eg, sales, marketing, manufacturing, starting a business, strategic planning, etc.).

If you’re looking for a way to give back, make a difference, and be a leader in the community, join SCORE. While some of the SCORE volunteers are retired, other current volunteers are still working full-time or part-time. You can volunteer as little as 1 hour/month or up to 20 hours/month.

If you are interested in volunteering with SCORE, please send an email to Mike.Messmer@scorevolunteer.org
