I have been a volunteer for over 5 years and have seen the impact that SCORE has had in helping people trying to start a business or who are struggling while in business. Helping people to realize their entrepeneurial dreams and create jobs helps not only the people involved but the local economy as well. The fact that nearly 13,000 volunteers across the country are supported by a handful of people in Virgina is absolutely amazing. Their dedication and commitment to the mission of SCORE is without parallel.
