Adaptive Construction Solutions, Inc. (ACS) is a veteran owned and staffed organization focused on providing meaningful work and debt-free career pathways to veterans and other underserved populations. ACS sponsors an employer-centric Department of Labor (DOL) Community-based Registered Apprenticeship program for occupations in multiple industries. To create effective and affordable Registered Apprenticeships, ACS builds programs with industry-recognized training while leveraging resources from workforce partners.
To assist employers in leveraging Registered Apprenticeship programs, ACS is structured to perform the following functions:
As many Veterans experience, transitioning into the civilian world can be quite difficult, especially when one is not surrounded by other Veterans. Some Veterans transition better than others, but regardless, all of us feel a lack of camaraderie. This is why Adaptive Construction Solutions has implemented a program where Veterans train together and continue to work in crews together throughout their careers. As Veterans complete sections of the NCCER training program, they are then able to mentor new Veteran apprentices integrating into the program. This preserves a sense of duty towards each other and fosters a strong relationship and bond between coworkers, mentors and management.
The president of ACS, Nicholas Morgan believes that for a Veteran to have a smooth integration into civilian life they must find a way to continue to serve their community. ACS has completed two successful disaster response missions in its first six months of business. The company has ambitious plans to develop its capabilities to respond in the future to those in need.
Veteran, US Army. Nick understands that transitioning Veterans thrive in team oriented environments built on trust. He says, "many of us underestimate the value of the relationships that we made during our service. ACS is working hard to create that workplace culture conducive for the success of Veterans."
Veteran, USMC. Carlos has been involved with Silkies Hikes and Cigar Nights for Vets. He says, "Through my struggles with transitioning, I am thankful I can steer other Veterans in the right direction, because I know they can be successful and have a network of Veterans and resources."
Civilian. As a first generation American, Susana says, "I know I owe my freedom to military service members. It's been amazing to see the Veteran community and how close and sincere they are in taking care of each other. I'm thankful to be able to be a part of that and learn more about the Veteran culture."
Veteran, US Army. Erin found ACS through other Veterans at LSVA and NextOp. She says, "It's nice to be in a familiar atmosphere, even though we all had different experiences in the military we all get along and have a great culture. I'm happy to be able to help Vets take advantage of this opportunity."
Civilian. Olga's son was a Marine for 8 years, she understands what it's like having a close family member in the service. She says," I came to ACS because I always enjoyed the Veteran community through my son. I have met lots of Veterans who were great people and I'm glad to do my part to provide careers to them."
