American Corporate Partners (ACP) is a national non-profit organization dedicated to helping military Veterans make connections in the civilian workforce. ACP’s mentoring program pairs Veterans with corporate professionals for free, yearlong one-on-one mentorships.  The focus of the mentorship is long-term career guidance, but the specific goals of the mentorship are up to the Veteran. These one-on-one mentorships are available to any Veteran who has served since 2001, as well as spouses and primary caregivers of Veterans who have been severely wounded.  Eligible Veterans are encouraged to sign up through the ACP website.

ACP is also excited to announce the launch of ACP AdvisorNet – an online “Quick Question Community” that allows current service members, Veterans, and immediate family members to ask business-related questions to experienced corporate professionals.  ACP AdvisorNet is open to all service members, Veterans and family members, regardless of their date of military service.  We believe that ACP Advisornet can be particularly useful to service members who are looking to gain advice and insight on making the transition into the private sector.  No matter if the service member or Veteran is located in Afghanistan, Korea, Germany, or Iraq – this online community is available to make some of the best and most experienced minds in business available at any time.

Whether through our mentorship program or ACP AdvisorNet, American Corporate Partners strives to enable all service members and Veterans to create successful and fulfilling careers in the private sector.  Please feel free to contact us at info@acp-usa.org if you have any questions regarding our programs.
