Why volunteer with SCORE Albuquerque?

SCORE offers an impactful way to give back to our local business community.  We are passionate about using our knowledge and expertise to assist and support local business owners and entrepreneurs during every phase of business. We do this by listening, asking questions and helping clients clarify their next step.  Most volunteers mentor, present workshops, facilitate Q&A sessions or facilitate Business Owners Councils.  Some help lead or organize chapter activities.  As a SCORE Albuquerque volunteer, your business skills will stay sharp!   Best of all, we help businesses grow and thrive, which strengthens our community.

But don't take our word for it.  Listen to what our mentors have to say about their mentoring experience!

  • Karen Simpson became a mentor after selling a business she owned for 27 years.
