Tip of the Mitt SCORE volunteer mentors conducted a series of five workshops for returning citizens at Chippewa Correctional Facility in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The workshops, Fundamentals of Starting or Growing a Business, were presented over several months in 2½-hour sessions totaling 10 hours of training for each participant.
