The Veterans Mentoring Program is designed to connect members of the veteran community to leaders and professionals across the South Australian corporate community.

The program supports South Australians who have served in the Australian Defence Force to further develop their personal and professional skills as well as build their professional networks.

The six-month pilot was launched on 6 July 2021 and will conclude in December 2021.
