"Some people say thank you to a Soldier when they are at the airport or see them in passing and every veteran appreciates that. What I appreciate more than anything is those people who say thank you with their actions. ACP provides veterans one-on-one mentorship with business executives and my experience has changed my life. The process to find a mentor was very quick; soon enough ACP found a Mentor that worked in my desired career field and had a similar personality to myself. My Mentor is incredibly knowledgable, helpful and an outstanding resource. I cannot say enough about the life-changing benefits I have experienced through ACP. I recommend it to every transitioning veteran I know and I refer to it as the best kept secret for a veteran."
- Ashley K., US Army, TX, Paired with MasterCard Mentor
"I continue to enjoy my affiliation with ACP and would recommend it highly to others – as Mentors and as Protégés! I have found ACP's Veteran Mentoring Program to be most rewarding personally and hope that the two veterans that I have partnered with also agree."
- Gloria G., NY, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Mentor
To recognize the successes of ACP’s Protégés, ACP periodically spotlights Protégés who have gone above and the beyond the requirements of the Mentoring Program to make the most of their mentorships. Mentors nominate their Protégés for this recognition by submitting a brief description detailing what their Protégé has done to help ensure their mentorship has been beneficial. ACP then reviews the nominations in order to select which Protégés to spotlight. Protégés are spotlighted on the website and through ACP’s social media.
If you believe that your Protégé deserves to be spotlighted, please email a brief synopsis explaining their dedication to the mentorship to email@example.com. Please note that ACP reserves the right to post all nominations on our website and social media.
Mentors are encouraged to submit nominations as they wish.

Mentor Bradd Chignoli, Irvine, CA, MetLife
To recognize the outstanding work of participating Mentors, ACP has created the Mentor of the Month contest. Each month, ACP staff reviews nominations and selects 1–3 Mentors who have had the greatest impact on their Protégés. To commemorate the winners, each selected Mentor is featured on the ACP website and both Mentor and Protégé receive an ACP memento.
If you are a Protégé and would like to recognize the outstanding work of your Mentor, please send up to one paragraph explaining how your Mentor has had a positive impact on you. Please email all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that ACP reserves the right to post all nominations on its website.
Veteran Protégés are encouraged to submit nominations as many times as they wish.
