Army Career and Alumni Program

The Army Career and Alumni Program (ACAP) has been developed to provide a comprehensive system to assist personnel leaving the Army with care and dignity while retaining quality. The program is targeted to serve the Army soldiers, civilians, and their family members. The Center is open 0730-1630 Monday - Friday. It is the first stop for transitioning personnel.

This facility provides ongoing standardized job search skills training, individual assistance and counseling, workshops and seminars, and one-stop-job hunting activities. Individual counselors are available to provide personalized counseling as well as individual needs assessment. A reference library is avaiable for use. The ACAP Center serves approximately 2,000 soldiers, civilians, and family members each year.
