    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.

    Paralyzed Veterans of America - Operation PAVEOperation PAVE (Paving Access for Veterans Employment is a Paralyzed Veterans of America's vocational rehabilitation program, supports America’s paralyzed veterans in their search for good jobs and meaningful careers while helping employers strengthen their workforce with hard-working, gifted employees. Many of America’s 44,000 paralyzed veterans are unemployed. Research and clinical studies have shown that providing an individual with a vocational focus is critical to their successful transition to living with paralysis. Access to education and career opportunities is essential to boost quality of life, reduce chronic health issues and improve the financial stability of veterans and their families. Traditional vocational rehabilitation models have been ineffective in preparing our nation’s paralyzed and disabled veterans to reenter the workforce and remain there. That’s why Paralyzed Veterans’ is working to overcome the vocational challenges that face veterans living with spinal cord injuries, and all persons with disabilities, at our six vocational rehabilitation centers located across the country. At each, PAVE counselors work hand-in-hand with the veteran, medical staff, PVA’s national service officers and physical therapists to:
    • Explore career options early on in a paralyzed veteran’s medical rehabilitation,
    • Assist veterans to find the appropriate educational opportunities, job training, skill improvements, etc.,
    • Connect veterans to a network of hiring employers.

    USA CaresUSA Cares provides financial and advocacy assistance to post 9/11 active duty US military service personnel, veterans and their families. They assist all branches of service and all ranks and components. They do not charge fees nor accept repayment and rely on donations from private citizens, businesses and foundations for all funding. Financial assistance is not given directly to service members or their families; instead, payments are made to mortgage lenders, utility companies, and other vendors. The objective is to reach families at the earliest stage of intervention to proactively prevent further financial distress. Typically, USA Cares provides assistance in four major areas:
    • Emergency Assistance - pays immediate, essential bills, including food and utility bills,
    • Housing Assistance – helps to stop and prevent evictions and foreclosures,
    • Combat Injured - pays basic expenses: mortgage/rent, food and home utilities which enables combat injured to receive treatment and be assured their family is taken care of,
    • Jobs Assistance – reduce unemployment among post-9/11 Veterans through job-seeker tools, open to all veterans, limited financial assistance.
