ACP is proud to now offer mentorships to spouses of active duty service members thanks to generous sponsorship from Johnson & Johnson and PepsiCo. There are more than 600,000 spouses of active duty service members nationwide, and with frequent moves, service member deployments and a lack of portable careers, many of these spouses struggle to focus on their own career development. ACP aims to help with career exploration, résumé review, interview preparation, networking, career coaching and overall professional development through yearlong mentorships. ACP announced the launch of this new program at an event at the Reserve Officers Association in Washington, D.C. on November 13. Speakers included representatives from PepsiCo and Johnson & Johnson, Georgeann McRaven, wife of retired Admiral William McRaven, Lieutenant General Gwen Bingham, and Congressman Don Bacon. ACP expects to mentor 1,500 spouses over the next two years.
