One of the great things about belonging to an organization like SCORE is being able to help others, while continuing to grow and learn as individuals. Membership in SCORE gives us the opportunity to educate the small business community and exercise our leadership skills in the spirit of volunteerism.
SCORE volunteers, men and women, come from many backgrounds, with various skills and years of life and business experience. All have been entrepreneurs, business owners, counselors, managers and/or supervisors. Most have been leaders who inspired and motivated themselves and others to give their best.
SCORE volunteers are like other typical volunteers. They are looking for ways to add value to their own lives and contribute to the lives of others. They serve on the basis of free will, expect no monetary rewards, want to be part of something larger than themselves and are ready to give service to community and country.
Admit it – you like helping your community, and you know that being a part of the local business scene – and reaching people has always been a key to your success.
When you join the volunteers, mentors and entrepreneurial efforts of SCORE, you become even more involved with the good people and leaders of our community. SCORE volunteers have the great honor of helping people start their own business and turning their dreams into a reality.
