There are more than 600,000 active-duty spouses who struggle to focus on their own career development due to underemployment, relocations and spouse deployments.

As stated in the Chamber of Commerce Foundation study, 70% of military spouses believe they are underemployed in their current job.

ACP hand-selects a Mentor for each spouse Protégé for year-long, customized, one-on-one mentorship. The pair will connect on honing professional development skills, networking and managing employment gaps.

Whether you are considering a new career, starting a small business, or have recently relocated, our Mentors volunteer their time by providing a service. They typically work on:

  • Career exploration
  • Entrepreneurship and small business growth
  • Résumé review
  • Interview Preparation
  • Networking
  • Career Coaching
  • Overall professional development
