The health of small business owners, their employees and our network of volunteers is our top priority. Effective immediately, all SCORE chapters across the country have suspended in-person events, including mentoring sessions and workshops, until further notice.
Local Workshops. Our upcoming workshops may be postponed or held online. If you’ve recently registered for a workshop, you will receive a status update soon. You can also contact us at the email address below if you have any questions.
Mentoring Sessions. Mentors are available to participate in remote mentoring sessions via phone, email and video. If you already have a SCORE mentor, tell them which remote mentoring method you prefer for your sessions. If you don’t already have a mentor, you can find a business mentor today.
