Dayton SCORE’s Commitment to Our Community

In 2011 the Montgomery County mentoring collaborative began hosting an operational AmeriCorps program. Each year the members serve over 600 K – 12 students and immobilize more than 100 volunteers to engage in mentoring and service throughout Montgomery County

The nonprofit committee of Dayton SCORE has provided workshops for the past two years based on a modified version of our nonprofit workshops. We are committed to providing them for an additional year with some modifications based on history with the organization.

On August 12, 2016 an award ceremony was held at Sinclair College to recognize the AmeriCorps members of the mentoring collaborative. Dayton SCORE representative Bob Halstead presented certificates of completion to 14 AmeriCorps members.

Summer is done, kids have gone back to school, and we all can take a deep breath and consider what comes next. When you’re in the middle of a lot of issues, and you are pressed for time it can be difficult to take a step back and ask ‘How is it going?’ That is where your Dayton SCORE mentor can excel.

Just look at what we did for Marie Cosgrove of Vestibular, Research & Development, LLC.  Her testimonial is available on our website (click here).  Your Dayton SCORE mentor stands ready to help you find the way for your business to make it to the next level.
