Description

Every year, SCORE volunteers help thousands of entrepreneurs start small businesses and achieve new levels of success in their existing businesses. Working with SCORE is a way for others to give back to the community, connect with fellow business owners, and pass on knowledge and expertise to the next generation of entrepreneurs in community.

SCORE volunteers provide confidential business mentoring services, both in person and online. We lead seminars and workshops to help small business owners meet their goals and achieve success. We help expand outreach of SCORE through marketing and alliance building in our local communities. We provide subject matter expertise by industries and professional skills. Whether you have owned your own small business, come from a Fortune 500 company, retired, college student, have a sincere commitment for helping small businesses or volunteering, there is a place for you as SCORE volunteer.

The Philadelphia chapter of SCORE is looking for an editorial/ journalism intern to capture the stories of our organization. SCORE Philadelphia is proud to have served thousands of small business owners through volunteering; therefore, we are looking for editorial/ journalism interns who will capture those stories from both our volunteers and clients and share with our community.
