Aptive VXC

VeteranS Experience council


The Aptive Veterans Experience Council (VXC) is comprised of Veterans, Active Duty Military, National Guard Members and Reservists who serve as advisors and help improve the services we provide to the Veteran community through our philanthropic, corporate and client engagements.

The program offers opportunities to earn money, pursue certificates, explore full time employment and more, while giving back to Veterans by sharing feedback and informing services and solutions that we may provide to our federal customers.




How does it work?

VXC advisors are part time employees who live in the United States and are either Veterans, Active Duty Military, National Guard Members and Reservists. They’re periodically invited to participate in surveys or focus groups, or to be a part of a review session, or to test a new feature or tool.

We also share information about opportunities to transition to full time employment, how to participate in our Veteran Training Program and other items that may be of interest.

VXC advisors are paid per survey or feedback session and can work remotely from anywhere in the United States.


Why does Aptive offer this program?

Aptive VXC is a new pilot program developed in 2023. We found ourselves wishing we had a “Veteran barometer,” that is, a way to gather and interpret a wide array of Veteran perspectives.

By working closely with a diverse group of Veterans and military stakeholders, we’re able better understand their needs and design services and solutions that meet them. As part of Aptive VXC, advisors guide us in areas that are relevant and important. Thus Aptive VXC, and the Veteran Barometer, were born.

Social Technology, Mental Health Support and Suicide Prevention in Veteran and Military Populations: A Survey

Aptive teamed up with Artemis ARC, our Mentor-Protégé partner, to ask Veterans and military members about which modern technologies, particularly artificial intelligence, they would use or recommend to others for mental health and suicide prevention support.

This report details the study’s results and shares important perspectives, concerns and recommendations about exploring the potential for using social technology to expand the availability of mental health support for this population.


Meet Some Aptive Vets

Donna Jones Senior Associate

[Personnel Officer, Virginia Air National Guard]. Donna is a project manager for a strategic planning and evaluation overhaul for a bourgeoning program office within the Veterans Health Administration. Donna applies military training in the job setting "primarily by being agile and flexible. Every project/assignment is an opportunity to ‘bloom where you are planted.’ Aptive is a Vet-friendly place to work because of the appreciation of those who served and the mentorship and encouragement of those still serving."

Ben Ambrose Program Manager

[Veteran, U.S. Marine Corps]. "Veterans come with a unique skill set of management, drive and adaptability. Aptive gives Veterans freedom, a fantastic support network and career opportunities to cultivate more skills that can propel their careers. I'm a program manager supporting the Department of Veterans Affairs where we create and implement new policies focused on giving the best care possible to women Veterans. I'm also training to climb Mt. Everest in 2024 to raise awareness for Veteran mental health and suicide prevention."

Michael Quisao Senior Associate

[Veteran, U.S. Navy]. "I support the Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) Office of Communications as the lead for videos and media monitoring. I know that my experience as a Veteran is valued and I feel very supported by Aptive to continue to grow in my career. Supporting VBA has been the most fulfilling and inspiring work I’ve done since leaving active duty."

Amanda Siegner Program Analyst

[Veteran, U.S. Air Force]. "In the Air Force, I was an intelligence analyst who used critical decision making skills to support national security efforts overseas in Afghanistan; now I use those same skills by providing support to VA as they make health care records synchronization a more seamless effort, which will ultimately provide more effective care for Veterans like myself."
