Originally founded in 1964, SCORE is a national, all-volunteer organization with more than 11,000 volunteers. Their confidential business mentoring services, both in person and online, have helped thousands of entrepreneurs not only start new businesses, but also achieve greater levels of success in their existing endeavors.

The Dallas Chapter has more than 60 volunteer mentors who devote up to six hours each week helping entrepreneurs throughout the metroplex. SCORE also provides up to 10 workshops each month on various topics of starting a business, such as Writing the Business Plan, Use of Social Media, QuickBooks Accounting Software, Starting a Non-Profit, and more.

If you or someone you know could benefit from the free services SCORE provides, or you or someone you know would like to volunteer as a Mentor to give back to the community, contact the Addison office at 214-987-9491 or check out the website at
