How one Mosaic employee is helping other veterans navigate the transition from military to civilian life

“You don’t know what you have to offer until you try,” said Gary Doyen, Mosaic EHS Training Specialist. He wasn’t sure exactly what to expect when he started volunteering as a mentor with American Corporate Partners (ACP), a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping U.S. veterans find new careers after leaving the military. Having gone through the transition from military to civilian life himself, Gary knew it could be difficult and wanted to help.

Making Volunteering a Priority…Even From a Distance

The pandemic has forced us to think differently about how we give back to our local communities and how we support one another, but giving back remains a priority for Mosaic and our employees. Capturing and reporting volunteer hours is one of Mosaic’s 2025 Environmental, Social and Governance Performance Targets that support our company’s broad thinking about sustainability. 

ACP’s mentorship program continues to be an opportunity for our employees to give back because the process of mentoring hasn’t changed due to the pandemic. ACP encourages mentors and their protégés to connect virtually monthly, and ACP staff are available to provide support and career resources.
