Why Participate in Mentor Match?

TAPPI Connect's Mentor Match unites mentors and protégés to share resources and experiences while working together to achieve professional and personal goals. Mentor Match will offer flexibility and creativity for better professional development.

Benefits of being a Mentor

  • Reinforce and expand your knowledge
  • Exercise your problem solving and leadership skills
  • Gain a sense of satisfaction knowing you are helping to shape and influence the next generation



Benefits of being a Protégé

  • Expand industry knowledge or soft skills
  • Gain valuable advice from a more experienced person
  • Build your professional network




"Finding a mentor through TAPPI Connect has been a game-changer for me. Books, seminars, training courses, and search engines are all great resources to gain knowledge from, but they can't celebrate your wins with you or guide you through situations in real-time with wisdom you can only get through lived experiences. My mentor's support, guidance, and cheerleading have been instrumental in my personal and professional growth."
- Jessi Spadaccino, protégé since 2019.
