ACP Citizens Mentoring Program

Citizens Program

The ACP Citizens Program invites individuals who are not employed by our Corporate Partners to mentor returning veterans as they transition from the military into their next careers. ACP connects veterans with Mentors for one-on-one, yearlong career development mentorships at no cost to the veteran.

Citizens Mentors support ACP veterans interested in diverse fields such as:

Public Service | Nonprofit | Medical | Legal | Small Business | Construction | Real Estate | Education
