American Corporate Partners (ACP) Mentoring
Augusta University is proud to be a partner with American Corporate Partners (ACP). ACP’s free Mentoring Program connects post-9/11 veterans, active duty spouses and eligible military spouses (Protégés) with corporate professionals (Mentors) for customized mentorships. ACP assists veterans and eligible spouses on their path towards fulfilling, long-term careers, whether the veteran is job searching or newly employed. Typical mentorship goals include resume review and interview preparation; career exploration and understanding job opportunities; career advancement once a position is obtained; work-life balance; networking; small business development; and leadership and professional communication.
