American Corporate PartnersAmerican Corporate Partners (ACP) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting veterans in their transition from the armed services to the civilian workforce. With the help of business professionals nationwide, ACP offers veterans tools for long-term career development through mentoring, career counseling, and networking opportunities. With the belief that one-on-one relationships enhance an atmosphere of mutual understanding, respect, and support, ACP aims to strengthen the connection between corporate America and veteran communities. Programs include: ACP AdvisorNet is an online network of volunteer Advisors who commit to sharing their business expertise and advice with military veterans and their immediate family. Veterans can post questions related to the following areas:
  • Employment,
  • Career Development,
  • Small Business.
ACP’s Veteran Mentoring Program connects Veteran Protégés with Corporate Mentors for a yearlong mentorship. Paired based on their career objectives and professional experience, Mentors and Protégés define the goals of their mentorship together. Mentors have a wide variety of professional expertise, including defense, education, finance, insurance, information technology, logistics, management, manufacturing, marketing and retail. Over the course of the year, all matched pairs should have at least 12 significant discussions regarding the Protégé’s career objectives. These discussions can focus on topics ranging from résumé building and interview skills to networking and small business development. Mentors may participate in all of the discussions personally or arrange for colleagues to meet with their Protégé. ACP has developed two program options in order to offer mentorships to veterans across the country:
  • National - ACP's National Program supports remote mentorships between participants who share similar career interests, but do not live within local proximity. We ask Mentors and Protégés to be flexible regarding the location of their mentorship. Participants in long-distance mentorships communicate by phone, e-mail, and/or videoconference.
  • Local- ACP's Local Programs operate in cities with high densities of participants. Because we aim to connect you with someone whose career objectives and professional experience aligns with yours, we may not always have an ideal candidate in your area. If your location lends itself to a local mentorship, we will do our best to pair you with a participant nearby.

Business and Professional Women’s FoundationBusiness and Professional Women’s Foundation (BPW Foundation) was the first foundation dedicated to conducting research and providing information solely about working women. Since then, we have partnered with employers to create successful workplaces that embrace and practice diversity, equity and work-life balance convening employers, working women and policymakers to promote systemic workplace change. Areas of research include women and non traditional jobs, Gen Y women and women’s use and access to the internet. In 2007 BPW Foundation conducted the first research on women veteran’s transition to civilian careers and in 2010, hosted a National Summit, Joining Forces for Women Veterans to identify the challenges women veterans face. Through information gathered at the summit, the need for mentors was identified and in 2012 BPW Foundation launched Joining Forces for Women Veterans and Military Spouses Mentoring Plus a program recognized by the White House Joining Forces Military Family initiative. The mentoring program is built on our legacy of working women helping women work. BPW Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) research and education organization. The work of BPW Foundation supports workforce development programs and workplace policies that recognize the diverse needs of working women, communities and businesses.

District 1199C Training and Upgrading Fund - Educational PathwaysEducational Pathways connect opportunities for skill development and career advancement to training and education. Created in conjunction with employers and educational institutions, these pathways have a positive impact on recruitment, retention and quality of care. Educational Pathways meet employer needs since they reduce costs incurred by employers as a result of high turnover, which results in loss of productivity, overtime costs, disruption of operations and compromised quality of care. The impact of these factors on quality of care include poor patient outcomes, increased length of stay and operating costs, decreased capacity, increased malpractice liability, decreased patient satisfaction, and lowered employee satisfaction. The Educational Pathway strategy helps employers with recruitment and retention since workers want to work where they are valued, receive core and specialty training, and understand that there is room for career advancement. The Educational Pathway model will also have a positive impact on quality of care since the workers’ skills will be enhanced and increased and the workers will feel valued, both of which positively impact quality of care.PhiladelphiaDistrict 1199C Training and Upgrading Fund (Training Fund Members) - Philadelphia; Center CityDistrict 1199C Training and Upgrading Fund

With CareerScope you will be provided with an assessment of your interests and aptitudes, and given recommendations about which careers you may enjoy and be successful doing, and what courses or training programs you should focus on to pursue those careers.
