Remote Mentoring is Available

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, SCORE mentors will meet with clients remotely. 

Mentors are available to participate in remote mentoring sessions via phone, email, and video. If you already have a SCORE mentor, ask them if you can use a remote mentoring method for your sessions. If you don’t already have a SCORE mentor, you can request a remote business mentor below. 

The health of small business owners, their employees and the SCORE network of volunteers remain our top priority. 

Mentoring Works!

Small business owners who receive three or more hours of mentoring report higher revenues and increased growth.
