    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.

    United States Department of Defense, National Center for Telehealth & TechnologyThe National Center for Telehealth & Technology (T2) is a component center of the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE). Utilizing a range of standard and innovative solutions, T2 recommends, coordinates and manages the development of an integrated DoD telehealth system for the provision of quality, patient-centric psychological and TBI health care services. The geographic dispersion of beneficiaries creates challenges for the Military Health System in providing behavioral health care. Telehealth provides opportunities to not only leverage DoD health provider resources and increase access to care through information and telecommunication technologies, but also to cultivate new, more efficient methods of care delivery. The timely and successful integration of telehealth into the overall DoD health services system requires enterprise-wide strategies, policies, and guidance. T2 is working as a coordinating and resource center focused on the development of a telehealth network of systems across the DoD by leveraging partnerships with the Services, VA, TRICARE, and civilian providers. T2 leads this network to expand the range of services available to rural and underserved locations through the use of various treatment facilities and telehealth technologies.
