American Corporate Partners (ACP) offers two different programs to help service members and veterans in their transition from the military to the private sector: 1.) ACP’s mentoring program and 2.) ACP AdvisorNet.
ACP offers a nationwide mentoring program that matches employees from some of the nation's largest corporations and universities with veterans for the purpose of mentoring, networking, and career counseling. Transitioning from military service to the civilian sector can be difficult, but ACP is dedicated to helping veterans develop the valuable relationships, key skills, and action plans needed for success in private enterprise.
Anyone who has served on active duty since 2001 is eligible to participate, and the mentoring program is available nationwide. Preference is given to those who have deployed in support of OIF/OEF, those with service-connected disabilities, primary caretakers of severely wounded veterans, and surviving spouses. Participation is free.
Veterans are matched one-on-one with a mentor, who is a business leader from one of 36 major corporations, according to the veteran’s preferences. Mentors provide veterans with the opportunity to leverage military skills and experiences in their career development.
While not a "jobs program," the ACP mentoring program is a career guidance program that aims to strengthen the relationship between America's leading corporations and universities and those who have served our country.

ACP AdvisorNet is a free, online “Quick Question Community” connecting veterans with business leaders across the country. Through an interactive and easy-to-use interface, veterans can ask questions about career development, employment, and small business and receive advice from business professionals with expertise in a variety of fields. Veterans and Advisors can follow topics and Q&A threads or send private messages to initiate offline conversation with other users.
ACP AdvisorNet is open to all current and former members of the US Military and their immediate family, as well as business leaders nationwide looking to share their expertise and advice. All users can ask or answer questions whenever they want, wherever they are, and are able to see the professional and/or military backgrounds of other users, promoting an environment of accountability and trust.
