SCORE Houston Seeks Volunteers to Help Local Small Businesses
Small businesses are the backbone of America’s economy. They are certainly the backbone of the Texas economy, where over 390,000 small businesses employ over 4 million workers. That’s why it’s important to support the small-business community any way you can. And SCORE Houston is looking for volunteers to do just that. Whether you’re a current or former small-business owner, an active or retired business exec, a college student, or just someone who wants to help Houston small businesses, there’s room for you as a SCORE Houston volunteer.
SCORE is nationwide nonprofit organization and partner of the U.S. Small Business Administration dedicated to fostering “vibrant small business communities through mentoring and education.” Experienced volunteers can serve as mentors who meet with local small-business owners to share their business wisdom and experience, helping new entrepreneurs to succeed and enriching the small-business community in the process. But business experience isn’t necessary to volunteer for SCORE—they also need people to perform “administrative, technical, and management functions,” most of which, they say, “can be done in the evenings or weekends from anywhere.”
SCORE believes that small-business owners are more likely to succeed if they have mentors helping to show them the way. And right now they’re seeking people from diverse backgrounds to expand their team of 105 Houston-area volunteers.

If you’d like to volunteer and help small-business owners reach their dreams, you can email email@example.com or call SCORE Houston’s office at 713-487-6565.
