Volunteers and Mentors play a crucial role in the development of entrepreneurs and our small business clients. Carolina Small Business Development Fund volunteers work alongside clients and staff to educate, coach, and mentor the small business community in the state of North Carolina. As a CSBDF volunteer, you can lend your expertise to provide one-on-one counseling/mentorship or give subject matter advice through workshops or webinars.
