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

Mentors are available to participate in mentoring sessions via phone, email, and video, or in person. If you already have a SCORE mentor, ask them if you can use a remote mentoring method for your sessions. If your business is experiencing issues as a result of Covid we are here to help. If you don’t already have a SCORE mentor, you can request a remote business mentor today. Mentoring teams are constructed with your specific needs in mind. 

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