What is Expected of Our Mentors? The BASICS Committee of the Blair County Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with the Greater Altoona CTC, is in the process of identifying talented and enthusiastic young people who are eager to come and work for you. What we’re asking you to do, as a member of the Blair County Business Community, is consider participating as a mentor. As our business partner, this means you agree to: • Serve as the mentor/supervisor (if your schedule permits) or recruit/designate an employee. The mentor should be someone who can interact well with young people. • Hire a young person as a summer employee, offer no less than 10 hours per week and pay him or her at least minimum wage. • Give your student worker the opportunity to learn new skills and help him or her to understand what it means to be a valuable employee.
