ACP's mission is to support and facilitate veterans' transitions to the civilian workforce while simultaneously strengthening the network between Corporate America and those who have served in the military since 2001. We believe that one-on-one mentoring relationships connect Corporate America and veteran communities, and enhance an atmosphere of mutual understanding, respect, and support. American Corporate Partners (ACP) is a nationwide mentoring program dedicated to helping veterans transition from the armed services to the civilian workforce through mentoring, career counseling, and networking with professionals from some of America's finest corporations and select universities. ACP is not a jobs program, but a tool for networking and long-term career development. Professionals from ACP’s Participating Institutions volunteer to mentor veteran Protégés in a yearlong mentorship. Those who have served on active duty since 2001 as well as the spouses of those service members severely wounded or killed in action are eligible to apply to be Protégés, and those with service-related disabilities will be given preference. ACP offers two variations of the mentoring program: In-Person mentoring and E-Mentoring. The In-Person program is available to veterans who live within 100 miles of one of ACP’s cities of participation, and the E-Mentoring Program is available to veterans who live outside these cities. ACP’s programs have a limited number of openings and not all those who apply will be selected for a mentorship. Protégé applicants who demonstrate how they will benefit from a mentorship are most likely to gain acceptance. Download a career assessment questionnaire RIGHT HERE! The In-Person Mentoring program is offered in the following cities: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas, Denver, Hartford, Houston, Los Angeles, Manhattan, KS, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Raleigh/Durham, San Antonio/Austin, San Francisco, and Washington DC. ACP encourages Mentors and Protégés to meet on a monthly basis. Periodic events are held in each city by Participating Institutions to facilitate networking and cohesion in ACP's cities of participation. Down applications and learn more by clicking HERE.
