What is Expected of Our Mentors? The BASICS Committee of the Blair County Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with the Greater Altoona Career & Technology Center, 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.
