SCORE session

SCORE started in 1964 as Service Corps of Retired Executives, and currently has more than 300 chapters nationally and over 11,000 volunteers spanning all fields of business and expertise.  The official name was changed to the acronym SCORE to reflect the inclusion of the many volunteers who are current business owners.  SCORE is a Resource Partner of the Small Business Administration.

Central Florida SCORE is the local chapter of a national organization of volunteers who are experienced in business and dedicated to mentoring startups and existing businesses. Confidential, no-cost mentoring is offered through face-to-face contact, email and virtual. In addition, educational workshops are offered throughout the year.  Our volunteers are all business professionals who own or have owned businesses or retired executives from the corporate world.

Our chapter is growing and we are in need of people with diverse backgrounds and experiences to serve in a variety of roles, from mentoring, education, and support in leadership roles.
