ACP Mentors / Veterans Day

More than 1 million veterans are expected to transition from the armed forces to civilian life over the next five years. American Corporate Partners (ACP) offers a unique volunteer opportunity to provide career guidance to military veterans as they transition into the civilian workforce.

Since 2010, a number of Harvard employees have volunteered with ACP to provide one-on-one career development mentorships to post-9/11 military veterans. Won’t you join them?

ACP Mentors and Protégés are paired for one year based on a variety of considerations including age, location, educational background, and shared career interests. Each pair is encouraged to speak at least once a month to discuss topics like résumé and interview preparation, networking, and other professional development topics. Throughout the year, an ACP staff member will be checking in regularly to ensure satisfaction, provide resources, and track the progress of the relationship.
