Small business is a vital part of the U.S. economy. With the recent news and concerns of COVID-19, SCORE is sharing the latest business guidance, assistance, and resources.

In-Person Events Are Suspended, But Online Support Is Available

The health of small business owners, their employees, and the SCORE Lancaster-Lebanon network of volunteers remain our top priority. In the wake of recent developments relating to COVID-19, SCORE is temporarily suspending in-person events until further notice. However, continued support is fully available through several online opportunities outlined below.

Local Chapter Workshops & Events:

All in-person workshops and events are postponed. Please continue to visit our website for updates as events are rescheduled.


While our office at 313 West Liberty Street and our satellite mentoring location at the Lebanon Valley Chamber of Commerce is closed for in-person mentoring, mentors are still available to help.  Mentoring sessions can be held via phone, email, video and chat services. If you already have a mentor, contact them to set-up a remote mentoring session. If you don’t yet have a SCORE mentor, you can request a SCORE mentor.
