Help a Transitioning Female Veteran Find Her Next Career
Ellevate Network has partnered with nationwide nonprofit organization American Corporate Partners (ACP) to find top women entrepreneurs and business leaders interested in working one-on-one with a recently transitioned female veteran for a yearlong, career development mentorship. Since 2008, ACP has assisted more than 7,000 veterans with their transitions from the military to civilian life.
Mentors work with their hand-selected protégé on topics like career exploration, networking, resume and interview preparation, workplace communication, career advancement, work-life balance and leadership. ACP staff members support the relationship throughout the year with personalized resources and mentorship suggestions. ACP mentoring pairs are encouraged to meet monthly via email, video chat, phone calls, and in-person meetings if possible.
Become an ACP Mentor today by visiting www.acp-usa.org/mentoring. Use the code ACPUSA to access the application, and mention that you heard about ACP through Ellevate in your Mentor application. After you apply, an ACP staff member will reach out to you to set up a quick phone call to discuss your background, preferences and any questions you have.
While not a firm guideline, ACP’s ideal mentor is at least 35 years of age with at least 8 years of business experience. Mentors do not need to be military veterans themselves.
Post 9/11-veterans interested in being paired with an ACP mentor are encouraged to apply as a Protégé at www.acp-usa.org/mentoring.
