Each week the Volunteer Center will highlight an exciting skill-based volunteer opportunity found on our Volunteer Solutions website. This week's opportunity comes from Hope Network Developmental and Community Services:


Business Mentors are Needed!

Kent County Micro Enterprise Program is seeking business mentors as part of our skill-based volunteering (SBV) initiative.  The program is a partnership of agencies that support people with disabilities in starting and running a small business.

Because all people deserve equal opportunities, this program supports those that have a good business idea in creating their own income. People with  business experience are needed to mentor up and coming business owners in their endeavor.

Mentors would need business experience and knowledge, along with good relationship skills since all knowledge and growth come through relationships. Each business is unique and thus has various strengths and weaknesses. Volunteers would go through the normal requirements of training, TB test, and background check.

For more information, please visit Hope Network's listing on Volunteer Solutions.

Disclosure: The Volunteer Center works to connect volunteers, agencies, companies and organizations in the community. The opportunity featured above has been pulled from our Volunteer Solutions website.

The Rapidian, a program of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Community Media Center, relies on the community’s support to help cover the cost of training reporters and publishing content.

We need your help.

If each of our readers and content creators who values this community platform help support its creation and maintenance, The Rapidian can continue to educate and facilitate a conversation around issues for years to come.
