Benefits of being a Mentor
Benefits of being a Protégé
"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.
