"ACP is one of the best kept secrets out there. Mentorship is huge in the military and I am now finding out that the civilian community is no different. My Mentor has been instrumental in giving me advice and direction to help pave my path to success in the civilian market. Receiving mentorship from someone who can relate to the situation I am in and has successfully transitioned back to the civilian job market is very beneficial. There is life after the military and ACP has truly nailed it with this program! I recommend it to every transitioning veteran I know and I refer to it as the best kept secret for a veteran."
- Ignacio P., US Navy, AZ, Paired with USAA Mentor
"I think [ACP is] one of the most significant things I can do with my time at UBS besides serving my clients and mentoring my teammates."
- CJ Z., AZ, UBS 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 email@example.com. 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.
