SCORE Celebrates Efforts and Impact of 10,000 Volunteer Mentors

WASHINGTON, Jan. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- SCORE, the nation's largest network of volunteer, expert business mentors, is celebrating the changemaking efforts and ongoing impact of its 10,000 volunteer mentors in honor of National Mentoring Month.

Since 1964, SCORE has helped more than 11 million aspiring entrepreneurs to start or grow their businesses. Each year, SCORE's 10,000 volunteer business experts provide 450,000+ free small business mentoring sessions, workshops and educational services to clients in 300 chapters nationwide. In 2017, SCORE volunteers provided 3.6 million hours to help create 54,506 small businesses and 61,534 non-owner jobs. (PRNewsfoto/SCORE)

Business mentoring works. Entrepreneurs who work with a mentor are five times more likely to start a business than those who do not have a mentor, and small business clients who receive three or more hours of mentoring report higher revenues and increased business growth.

"Our volunteer mentors come from a diverse set of backgrounds and experience, but they share the same goal of helping American entrepreneurs to achieve their dreams," says SCORE VP of Field Operations Doug Nohe. "We are humbled by their contributions and dedication, and their efforts continue to make a significant, positive impact on the success of the small business owners we serve."

Cleveland SCORE Client and Small Business Owner Laura Licursi: "I initially sought out a mentor when COVID-19 hit. My SCORE mentor, Mark, always has great insight and has gone above and beyond. He is ultra-responsive and our meetings helped keep me accountable."

SCORE's 10,000 volunteer mentors freely share their firsthand business experience with entrepreneurs who are starting, growing or troubleshooting a business. In 2019 alone, SCORE mentors collectively donated more than 4.9 million hours of service to support their local communities.

Southeast Wisconsin SCORE Mentor Lisa Foster: "Becoming a part of an organization that measures our success on our clients' success, through mentoring, teaching, speaking and participating in community events, is just awesome. It is energizing."
