Veterans can post questions related to the following areas:
  • Employment,
  • Career Development,
  • Small Business.
ACP’s Veteran Mentoring Program connects Veteran Protégés with Corporate Mentors for a yearlong mentorship. Paired based on their career objectives and professional experience, Mentors and Protégés define the goals of their mentorship together. Mentors have a wide variety of professional expertise, including defense, education, finance, insurance, information technology, logistics, management, manufacturing, marketing and retail. Over the course of the year, all matched pairs should have at least 12 significant discussions regarding the Protégé’s career objectives. These discussions can focus on topics ranging from résumé building and interview skills to networking and small business development. Mentors may participate in all of the discussions personally or arrange for colleagues to meet with their Protégé. ACP has developed two program options in order to offer mentorships to veterans across the country:
  • National - ACP's National Program supports remote mentorships between participants who share similar career interests, but do not live within local proximity. We ask Mentors and Protégés to be flexible regarding the location of their mentorship. Participants in long-distance mentorships communicate by phone, e-mail, and/or videoconference.
  • Local- ACP's Local Programs operate in cities with high densities of participants. Because we aim to connect you with someone whose career objectives and professional experience aligns with yours, we may not always have an ideal candidate in your area. If your location lends itself to a local mentorship, we will do our best to pair you with a participant nearby.
