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 The Grand Rapids Chaper of SCORE:

This skill-based opportunity is for those with business experience willing to mentor entrepreneurs.  SCORE, Counselors to America's Small Business, provides free counseling to entrepreneurs considering a business start up and to existing small and medium sized businesses who may want assistance in growing.  The Grand Rapids Chapter of SCORE seeks local business men and women willing to give their time to help others be successful.

SCORE is  inviting working and retired executives, small business owners, educators and other professionals to become volunteer counselors. In addition to counselors, SCORE needs volunteers willing to help with chapter administration, outreach programs, marketing and workshops. The Grand Rapids Chapter has offices in Grand Rapids, Hastings and Greenville, Michigan. There are also Chapters in Muskegon, Holland and Ludington in Western Michigan. New counselors are assigned mentors and undergo a training program as they learn about the counseling process, resources, workshops, and our requirements.

Visit SCORE's posting on Volunteer Solutions for additional information.

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.
