Veterans Mentorship Resources From our Partners

Standing Up For Heroes

American Corporate Partners (ACP)

American Corporate Partners (ACP) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting service members in their transition from the military to the private sector. With the help of business professionals nationwide, ACP offers veterans tools for long-term career development through mentoring, career counseling, and networking opportunities.

Through ACP's nationwide Mentoring Program, transitioning service members work one-on-one with employees from some of the largest corporations and universities in the country in yearlong mentorships. And on ACP AdvisorNet, an interactive business Q&A community, current and former service members can seek career and business advice from experienced professionals in a variety of industries.

ACP served as a partner to ABC News in the creation of the "Standing Up for Heroes" mentorship series. ACP worked with each of the veterans in the video series and advises ABC News on the structure and goals of successful mentoring relationships.

Google for Veterans and Families

Google has created a number of online communities for veterans as well as range of digital tools and products designed to assist both veterans and their families. Google also hosts a number of special seminars and workshops throughout the year designed to assist veterans in preparing for their civilian career search.
