OAS supports American Corporate Partners to assist transitioning veterans
June 22, 2021
Objective Area Solutions is proud to support transitioning veterans with American Corporate Partners (ACP) in our OAS Corporate Social Responsibly program!
American Corporate Partners (ACP) is a national nonprofit organization focused on helping returning veterans and active-duty spouses find their next careers through one-on-one mentoring, networking and online career advice.
“Service is a value that is embedded in our OAS company culture. One of the most difficult transitions veterans will make is the transition from military to civilian life. Veterans bring a tremendous amount of talent to our civilian workforce and community. We are delighted to support the mentoring and integration of veterans to civilian roles where we can tap into their leadership and expertise. It’s a win-win for all,” said BJ Johnston, Vice President of Corporate Services.
More than 1 million veterans are expected to transition from the armed forces to civilian life over the next five years. ACP engages the American people in a unique volunteer opportunity to provide career guidance to returning military as they transition back into civilian life.
We believe that the biggest issue facing our returning service members is not unemployment – it’s underemployment. ACP focuses on helping veterans and active duty spouses find meaningful employment opportunities and develop long-term careers. Currently, ACP has more than 4,000 veterans and active duty spouses paired one-on-one with mentors from more than 100 of America’s top companies, universities and hospitals.
