SWEAT, JR ., Direct or of Governm ental Lia ison Mr. John Cox E x ecutive Director Atlanta Children and Youth Services Council City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear John: Several weeks ago the decision was made that in order to get the Urban Corps Program established and functioning this summer it would be necessary to tie the administration of the Urban C c rps to an existing City ag e ncy. It was my recomme ndation that we use the Atlanta Childr e n and Y o uth S e rvices C o uncil as th e administrative v e hicl e for g etting the Atlanta Urban Corps underway. There was much pr e ssur e from the students and others to plac e the administration of the Urban Corps dir e ctly in the Mayor's Office and there has been much fe e ling all alon g that this is where it must be located if it is to gain th e str e n g th n e cessary to make it through its initial org a nization s ta ge s. I As w e have b e come mor e and mor e involv e d in th e l egal and finan c i a l m e chani c s of e stabli s hin g th e Urb a n Corps Pr o g r a m, it has become mor e appar e nt that w e should hav e g o ne ah e ad and ti e d it to th e Mayor's Offic e until such time as th e non-profit Urban C o rps organization can sta nd on its o w n. In vi ew of so m e o f the r e quir e m e nt s for contractin g a n d for g a1n 1ng progr a m s u p p o rt, it i s th e r e co m1ne n dati on of thi s o ffi ce , th e Cit y Attorn ey, th e D ir ect o r of Fina n ce that we g o a h ead and ti e· it t o th e M a yor's Offic e a t this poi n t . �Mr. C ox Page Two May 15, 1969 This sum.mer our payroll will total almost $270,000 which necessitates a special payroll account in the City's Data Processing and Finance Department. Since this account requires departmental sponsorship, that means all employees of that department would be tallied on the same le'dger and bank account which co~d confuse an already complicated system if lumped into a small department such as the Youth Council. The Accounting Department is creating a special billing department due to the size and number of checks to be issued. This can be done under no presently existing department since we will be billing other City departments and private agencies. In dealing with other City agencies, it is easier to influence their opinion and participation if they realize the Mayor is sponsoring the program. Also, this keeps us from inher itin g inter-departmental conflicts that virtually any department would have accumulated. C ontacting colleges at all levels is much easier from a formal relations point of view if it is done through the chief ~xe cu.ti ve' s office. This advantage can save us valuabl e time in Atlanta on certain campuses due to political problems. We will deal with six other government units in Atlp..nta at the hi ghest level; therefore, our base in Atlanta City G o vernment should be known and respected. Another point that keeps coming up from the students and others in the business and academic community is that 13 out of the 14 Urban Corps programs op e rating in the country are operating directly out of the chief executive's office of each city. The fourteenth agency is operated out of a Model Cities agency. Since you did not ask for th e program to be placed under th e Y outh C ouncil to start with and sinc e I hav e felt all along that we might have taken advantage of you and your staff by shoving this great a dm.inistrativ e burden upon you, it is our intention to go ahead and do w hat we should have don e in the fir s t place and plac e th e Urban C o rps under th e Mayor's Offi ce for th e ti1n e b e in g .

Since the program itself must cross into virtually every agency and department, placing its administration at the vortex of the city 1 s structure simplifies considerably the establishment of program guidelines and the enforcement of program policy. Also, students and colleges seem to respond more favorably to a program under the direct aegis of the Chief Executive. from the National Urban Corps Organizational Manual According to the National Urban Corps Office, 13 out of the 14 Urban Corps now operating are under the Office of the Chief Executive of each city. This summer our payroll will total almost $270,000 which necessitates a special payroll account in the city 1 s Data Processing and Finance Department.

Please notify Sam Williams of any additions or corrections . Also enclosed is a copy of the By-laws which were unavailable at the meeting. These were accepted as a beginning set until the next meeting I feel it necessary to tell you that in my opinion these By-laws. which I hadn't seen prior to the meeting . are so poorly prepared that the task of revision is rather a task of starting over. I have advised Dr . Bloom . as Chairman of the By- laws Counnittee ~ of my feelings. I am also passing on to him what constructive comments I can. I hope you will do the same , The Urban Corps effort .is continuing under the leadership of Sam Williams and the student s who are giving so much ·of their time to it . A large number of students will be placed in community service positions this summer as a result of their work and an integrated educational program is being prepared . It seems to me that the task of the Board of Trustees is to develop a structure that can represent the various interests in an Urban Corps . assume responsibility for operation of an Urban Corps 1• and assure its continuat i on , In view of the requir~ments of By- laws development an~ the ~ressin~ demanos of irmnediate program operations 1 the May meeting of 'the Board of Trustees is postponed until the By- laws Committee is ready to report and the Staff Director if-J prepared to present a review of program operation.

Assignments will also be made within the Offices of the Mayor and Deputy :rv;ayors. IV. SEMINARS In addition to their job assignments, Urban Fellows will take part in periodic off-the-record seminars with officials within the City government as · well as with leaders of the academic, cor.imunications, business, civic and cultural communities of the City. These meetings will enable the Fellows to assess and compare their own experiences, to discuss the basic problems and goals of City policy with the policy-makers themselves, and to profit from the perspectives of outstanding citizens anj professionals outside the governr.ient. V. ACADEMIC CREDIT - FELLO~l' S REPORT A basic feature of the program is that each Urban Fellow will be granted appropriate academic credit by his college or ·-·---~--2,.

The Fellow's Re- port should present an evaluation of his job assignment, a review of his personal experiences, and an appraisal of the Program itself. Ideally, the Report should include a Fellow's original and personal insights and suggestions for change and improvement -in a specific phase of government. VI. STIPEND Each of the twenty Urban Fellows selected to participate . in the City 1 s Program will receive a stipend of $3,500 plus roundtrip travel expenses, from funds granted by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. In addition, it is expected that each Fellow will re- ceive a supplementary grant of at least $500 from his own college or university. VII. TIMETABLE All appl ications (school-endorsed) must be received by March JO, 1969. Review of all applications by a Selection Com- mittee will be concluded by April 15, made to all unsuccessful applicants. and immediate notification Expense-paid interviews for forty finalists are schedule d to be held at City Hall, New York City, the week of April 21, with designation of twenty Urban Fel lows completed by April 30, 19690 �-5- VIII. CAREERS IN CITY GOVERNMENT It is our underlying hope that many Urban Fellows will find their experience so rewarding that they will decide to fulfill their professional careers within the City government. For our part, it is highly likely that Fellows who prove outstandingly successful in their one-year assignments could be appointed to rewarding, challenging positions in the City's service. IX.

Atlanta, Georgia ~30313 MEMORANDUM TO Persons Interested in Education and Community Relations DATE: April 30, 1969 The relationships between education and community service have been the topic of much talk, interest and activity in Atlanta for the past several months. A meeting at Emory University on February 28, bringing together some of the people representing agencies and institutions concerned with stu~ent involvement in community development , expressed the need for a continuing structure to allow coordination and cooperation among those concerned. This need has been explored by a group of those attending the Emory meeting and others and the result is this invitation to a larger meeting to review and act on a proposal for a nine-month confer ence on service - learning. Enclosed a r e a prospectus of the proposed confe r ence and a meeting agenda. The meeting to r eview the proposal and , if acceptable, to initiate the conference is scheduled for April 30, 1969 at Dean Sage Auditorium, Atlanta University, Atlanta Georgia. It will begin with registration at 9:00 A.M. The meeting will commence at 9:30 A.M. and adjour n at 4 :00 P. M. Please r ead the pros pectus and prepare your comments i n advance.

Kimmins Office of Public Affairs/South Region Peace Corps Portions of this paper were developed from materials prepared by William R. Ramsay of the Southern Regional Education Board , by Dr. Edward Holmes of Emory University, by Sam Williams of the Atlanta Urban Corps, and others. Atlanta , Georgia April 23 , 1969 �What we have to learn to do, we learn by doing. ARISTOTLE �THE ATLANTA SERVICE LEARNING EXPERIMENT A Proposal For A Conference The Atlanta area today is alive with the activities of many agencies , institutions, and individuals concerned with the full development of the area's human and economic resources. These activities cut across tradi- tional academic and bureaucratic categories and across traditional social and political organizations and are marked by new alliances including black and white, young and old, powerful and powerless. One of the new allian€es with great potential is the combining of community experience with education. "Service-learning" implies an involvement of students , faculty and practitioner in an arrangement which results in both service to the community and learning by all participants. Recognizing that such an arrangement requires this c ooperative action , and raises difficult questions that pertain t o both education and community devel opment, i t is felt by many that some agent should exist t o serve as a link between the various people and organizations concerned, and as a reposit ory of new experiences. But such an agent does not now exist, which merely reflects the fac t that the activities mentioned cut across traditional organizations of men and thought. Therefore, it is proposed to convene a Conference of interested individuals who represent the agencies, institutions, and other organizations that are affected by or involved in the development of both community and human resources. �The Confer ence will focus on the concept of service-learning for five basic reasons , simply stated: 1. Programs of all kinds are proliferating in response to pressing societal and human needs; 2. Existing development agencies need additional manpower; 3. Students have expressed a desire for more "relevant" educati onal experiences , and are a large pool of well-trained, of t-unused manpower; 4. Educational institutions are reaching out into the community for ways to become more vitally involved in its affairs; and 5. The human and institutional resources exist side-by-side in Atlanta with progressive attitudes which , properly coordinated , can achieve a broad pr ogr am of student intern involvement in service-learning opportunities existing in this metropolitan area. The Conference shall be convened for a nine-month period , extending from April t hrough December, 1969 . I ts purpose shall be: to c ombine the resour ces of institutions and agencies concerned wit h t he rel at ionships bet ween service experi.e nce and higher educat ion in an exploration and development of a conceptual f ramework and pract ical model f or service l ea rning programs for universities and communities. The Conference will provide a s tructure for reflection and exchange among participant s in various community and educat ional programs over the nine-months period. Careful study combined with actual i nvolvement in programs will result in a comprehensive picture and plan for servicelearning in community and on campus. �Participation in the Conference will be extended to any agency or organization whose activities have a bearing on the component concerns of service-learning, or which has a vested interest in the successful outcome of an experimental program in service-learning. In the Atlanta area, where the Conference will have its focus, it is envisioned that the following groups or institutions will be wellrepresented in the body of Conference participants: Students There are more than 30 ,000 college or university students in Atlanta area institutions Educational Institutions Agnes Scott College, Clark College, Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia State College, Morehouse University, Morri s Brown College, Spelman College, Oglethorpe College, and the University of Georgia Governments The City of Atlanta, Fulton and DeKalb Counties , the State of Georgia, and the Federal Government as represented by regional headquarters of HEW, HUD, CSC , OEO Peace Corps , VISTA , and others · Other Institutions and Organizations The Atlanta Urban Corps , the Georgia Mmicipal Association, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools , the Southern Education Foundation , the Ford Foundation , the Southern Consortium on International Education , the YWCA, the Concerned Citizens of Atlanta , and many others from the public and private sector Operation and Function of the Conference on Service-I.earning Any experiment , and especially one dealing with an indistinct , newly-conceived project such as the Atlanta Service-I.earning Experiment, comprises many component concerns. The concept of service- learning �involves many functions which are not easily compartmentalized. However , the following are seen as fairly distinct components of the service-learning idea: 1. the service dimension of service-learning 2. the learning dimension of service-learning 3. curriculum design 4. inter-institutional relationships 5. institutional and agency structure , or re-structure , for service-learning 6. financial resources and needs 7. research , of university, community , and agency resources 8. models and programs, existing and foreseen 9. a guiding philosophy for service-learning programs For the working study of these concerns , it is proposed that the Confe r ence create wor k groups , each undertaking to ex plore in depth and produce a report on their assigned area. The collected reports f r om the work groups would be presented in December 1969 at the summary meeting of the Confe r ence . To a ssist t he work groups and the confe r ee s in thei r study, t wo methods would be employed in additi on to work group meetings . I. ~ Practical Laborat ory: t he At l ant a Urban Corps An on-going practi ca l implementation of t he se rvi ce-learni ng concept on as wide a basis as possible in t he Atlanta area during the summe r of 1969 i s al ready begun, unde r the spons orshi p of several groups (joining to form an Atlanta Urban Corps). This operation shall serve as a practical laboratory , whereby the �Conference, through observation and conclusions, shall work towards a continuing service-learning program for the Atlanta area. Furthermore, the Conference will serve as the repository of information gained through experience with Atlanta area service-learning experiments. Similarly, the Conference , because of the collective expertise of its participants , will be a major resource to service-learning groups throughout the summer of 1969. The participants pledge to commit as much of their creativity, time, and resources as possible to the successful completion of a summer of experimentation in servicelearning. II. M:>nthly Conventions of the Conference Monthly sessions of the entire Conference will be convened , at each of which one or more of the component concerns will be the topic of study. Each work group will have an opportunity to "chair" a session of the Conference , and guide the discussion as it sees fit to focus the attention of the entire Conference on its particular component of service-learning . Each work group will organi ze its assigned session , calling in whatever additional r esource people needed to explo r e the topic of concern. ~~ Groups The Conference will f unction pri marily th r ough i t s work groups. membership will be drawn from the body of Confe r enc e participants. Their Work groups will marshall the available re sources , implement the ideas and concepts , guide the progress of the Experiment , coordinate its operations , �study its component concerns , and make recorrnnendations based upon their experiences towards the creation of a comprehensive model and a continuing operation in Atlanta. Individuals , appointed from the Conference participants , will be designated Chairmen of the work groups. The Chairmen will see his work group's assignment is successfully studied and reported to the Conference. Chair- men will have as co-workers other participants in the Conference who agree to serve on his work group. It is proposed that the following work groups be formed: 1. A Service Work Group 2. A Learning Work Group 3. A Curriculum and Inter-Institutional Work Group 4. A Research Work Group 5. A Financial Work Group 6. A Models and Programs Work Group 7. A Guidance Work Group (a steering committee) The membe r ship of the Guidance Work Group shall consist of the Chai rmen of the othe r six work groups , and the Director of the Confe r ence. The membe r ship of the other work groups will be r esolved at the Apr il 30, 1969, Confe r ence Convention. Although t he Chai rman of a par ti cular work gr oup wi ll i nevi t abl y repres ent one of the part i cipating agenci es or instituti ons of the Confe rence, this does not imply domination of that work group's study by the vi ewpoint or vested interests of the Chairman's agency or institution. It is assumed that the membership of any particular work group will consist of individuals from several participating agencies or groups, as their interests and manpower resources allow. �A Timetable It is ervisioned that the Conference be convened on a monthly basis, beginning in April 1969. Following is a suggested timetable for Conference consideration of the components of service-learning: April 1969: first Conference Convention; orientation, general discussion of the Conference proposal and the agenda; and assignment of work group chairs and membership May 1969: a general meeting on Service-learning and the Atla~Experiment; a national meeting of concerned people with the Atlanta participants , to generate national and community interest and to publicly initiate the Conference June 1969: a discussion of service and learning July 1969: a discussion of financial needs and resources ·August 1969: a discussion of curricula, and inter-institutional relationships September 1969: October 1969: a discussion of research considerations a discussion of models and programs November 1969: a discussion of the philosophy of servicelearning, and preparation for final reports December 1969: a summary meeting �Conclusion Although admittedly imperfect, as is the nature of foresightful programs, it is believed that the structure outlined in this paper will at least get the Atlanta Service-Learning Experiment under way in a reasonably workable fashion. It is intended that the reader view all the above as designed for flexibility. Needs will undoubtedly be met on an ad hoc basis as we learn of them. But this is a start. We commit ourselves as individual and group participants in a large-scale , serious approach to meeting important and immediate needs of society. We, like the students who undertake service- learning, must learn by doing. �The following information is provided as background to this proposal: I. II. III. The February 1969 Emory Conference on Service-I.earning The Atlanta Urban Corps Developments in Curriculum Design at Emory University • '-. / �The Emory Conference On February 28, 1969, more than two dozen men and one woman, representing educational institutions, government, and other agencies, met together for one afternoon at Emory University. Under the leadership of William Ramsay of the Southern Regional Education Board, they initiated a discussion of several aspects of service performed by individuals in the public interest , and of the educational dimensions of that service. Models for the service concept were as varied as the SREB intern and the volunteer in Peace Corps or VISTA. Participants in the Emory Conference agreed that such service both contributes to the community , welfare and the students' education , and that it should be encouraged on a large and institutional scale. Indeed , many participants felt that it is not only in the gene r al interest to encourage such commitment , but i mperative to do so. They agr eed further that programs could and should be created by colleges and universiti e s to encourage the student population to commit itself in greater pe r centage s to national or international se r vice with st rong educational support. It was suggested that the agencies and insti tuti ons r epresented a the Emory Conf erence had the necessary powe r and r esource s to create such pr ogr ams in At l anta. As the day's di s cussion pr ogres sed , it became cl ear that the concerns of the participants we re far broader than service - l earni ng alone . According to their individual viewpoint, diffe rent participants felt that the concept of service-learning carried the seeds of solution to many modern problems. �stated, some of them are: student demands for more "relevant" educational experiences during the college years (a concern for the active student) society's needs for large numbers of concerned people who are willing to give of themselves to solve great problems ••• and the lack of such numbers (a concern for the passive student) polarization of the attitudes of racial, ethnic, economic, and national groups, demanding increased inter-cultural, or cross-cultural, experiences both within and between nations (the issue of peace) the insensitivity of established institutions to pressing needs for change; and the slow pace of institutional change versus the accelerating rate of social change and needs (the "Establishment") disagreement, especially by the young, with current social ordering of priorities in America (the crisis of values) It is noteworthy , too, that many modern spokesmen have eloquently addressed themselves to the same concerns. Four significant recent statements follow: Governor Daniel Evans, in his Keynote Address to the 1968 Republican Convention: The voice of youth has served notice that satisfaction can't be measured alone in dollars; that there is a need for service and contribution beyond the attainment of material success. If these goals require an investment in patience, then let us invest ; if they require money , then let us spend. �Eberly, Executive Director of ••• organizations should offer young people opportunities to perform needed tasks contributing to the welfare of others; to communicate across racial , social, and economic barriers; to develop a sense of self-worth and civic pride; to get involved; and to learn while serving. President Richard Nixon , in a radio address on October 17, 1968, during his campaign for the presidency: ••• school administrators (must) wake up to the healthy new needs of student participation and incorporate that activity into the learning process. Mark R. Killingsworth, a Rhodes scholar in economics at Oxford , in the NEW YORK TIMES of February 15 , 1969: ••• the National Commission on Technology , Automation and Economic Progress has estimated that the country needs some 5.3 million extra workers to bring public services -- medical care , education, welfare and home care , public protection , urban renewal and sanitation -- up to ' acceptable' levels. The energy and moral commitment of a gene r ation which ha s alre ady won civil r ights victor i es , gotten l ongoverdue educ ational reforms and blown a closed political pr ocess wide open is still available. When will we decide we want it ? The Emory Conference participants, and othe rs who will join the At l anta Experiment as i t evolves , t ake heart in the nat ionwide movement of thought that supports our sense of dedicati on and commitment. This sense of dedication and commitment to action was the overriding result of the Emory Conference. The participants called upon Bill Ramsay of SREB to work with an ad hoc committee toward the creation of some �framework that would marshall the resources in Atlanta to the They also felt that the City of Atlanta should be the focus and limit of experimentation at this time , with the idea that what is attempted here will be done in an atmosphere of open experimentation , searching for ideas of value for other cities, states, or regions. We should seek to learn not only what can be done here, but what can be done anywhere. Practicality demands an initial attempt of experimentally manageable scope. Also, it was felt that necessary resources exist in Atlanta, obviating the necessity to search far and wide for distant resources and support. � ' The Atlanta Urban Corps ,., I • \ ., (From THE ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, Saturday, November 30, 1968:) "Atlanta city government hopes to have an Urban Corps of up to college interns working for and with it by the spring semester. "Dan Sweat, governmental liaison director at City Hall , said Friday that the city is seeking to employ 100 under the federal College Work Study Program, and already is negotiating with college officials. "Sam Williams , president of the Georgia Tech student body last brought the attention of Sweat and Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr., to the of the New York intern program last spring." In the five-month interim since the publication of this article , an Atlanta Urban Corps has come into being . It is under the directorship of Mr. Williams , through a cooperative arrangement between the Atlanta Children and Youth Services Council of the City and the Souther n Regional Educat i on Board. Currently, the Urban Corps , with a strong student partici pation element , i s engaged in t he following operations: 1. Recruitment of st udent i nterns f or summer, 1969, f rom Atl anta campuses through a s tudent member Col lege Rel ations Board. 2. D=velopment of int ernship positions to meet agency manpower needs in the Atlanta a rea.

It is expected that up to thr ee hundr ed pos i t i ons will be avai l able f or placement. 3. A search is underway to locat e individuals to fill approximately thirty-three permanent and temporary staff positions needed to manage and operate the Urban Corps. �Of the "Our young people and our cities can no longer afford to be The Urban Corps offers to students a chance to be in the mainstream of Atlanta's problems and potentials. " Descriptive and publicity materials, and the charter of the Urban Corps will be available at the April 30, 1969, convention of the Conference for examination by the participants. �Developments in Curriculum Design~ Emory University Dr. Edward Holmes, Assistant Dean of the General College, Emory University; and Phillip Rlopp , Director of Institutional Relations, Peace Corps, on April 9, 1969, met with department chairmen and faculty members in social sciences and romance languages to survey existing resources at Emory for developing service-learning programs. Beyond the single concern of university resources, they explored the possibility of creating a ·program of subjects in domestic and international affairs that would encourage and prepare the student for service in Peace Corps , VISTA, or Teacher Corps, or in other related voluntary service. Conversations on that day between Holmes, Rlopp, and Bill Ramsay of SREB led to a decision to pursue the question of Atlanta area resources relevant to such a program, and to a proposal for a resource survey. Accordingly, on April 15 , 1969, Holmes met with Robert C. Nelson , Director of the Southern Regional Office of Public Affairs , Peace Corps , to discuss in detail what such a survey would involve in terms of personnel for a contract between Peace Corps and the Southern Consortium for Internationa l Education , for Peace Corps to pr ovi de funds for such a survey. The fol lowing members of the Cons orti um read and agreed unanimously to the proposed contract: Dean Charles I.ester , Emory University ; Dr . George Part hemos of t he Uni ve rsity of Georgi a ; Dr . Robe r t St emke , Georgi a Institut e of Technology; Dean Richard Barksdale, Atlant a Universi ty ; and Dr. Ernest Ogrum, Georgia State College. On Apr i l 18, 1969, Dr. c. C. Mlrray, Act ing Di r ector of the Consortium, signed t he proposal and sent it to Peace Corps in Washingt on, D. c. Dr. Sanford Atwood, President of Emory Univer s i ty, has agr eed to provide office s pace for the survey i n the Cente r for Social Research. �Atlanta area educators are presently being contacted for references for a qualified individual to undertake the survey ; Peace Corps approval of the contract is expected soon. Dr. Holmes expresses his hope for the survey in these terms: "If this proposal is successful, a constellation of interests and resources will converge to make an outstanding improvement in the Consortium schools through the internship program with national and local agencies. By pooling all these resources, we can have a major impact on the awareness of problems and the pursuit of the solution to these problems, and on the discovery and application of manpower resources. "The human problems of our time must be treated in a serious way with all available resources in order to point toward a future devoid of destructive elements standing in the way of human development." �r April 18, 1969 Ar. Joseph E. Birnie President The National Bank of Georgia Post Office Box 1234 Atlan t a 1 Georgia 30301 Dear r . Birnie: We would like to bring to your attention what we consider to be one of the most worthwhile student-oriented projects we have seen in some time . It is called the Atlanta Urban Corps , and its goal is to use the great constructive energy and innovative spirit of college students in helping to solve the problems of our city. The students plan to do this by working within the frameworks of established metropolitan area governments . They will develop Urban Internships within these governments des igned to be challenging and sti ulating to the student. We recommend this project to you as being most worthwhile, both from the point of view of the governments involved and from the value of the education 1 experiences that each student in the Atlanta Urban Corps will have. We urge you to attend a breakfast on Tuesday, Apri l 29, at 9:00 a . rn ., at Rich ' s Tea Room on the Sixth Floor. The store may be entered through the Store for Homes or the Street Floor entrance. This breakfast will not last more than one hour, and that hour will be well spent . Sincerely yours, Edwin D. Harrison Ivan Allen, Jr. rh �URBAN CORPS BREAKFAST LIST April 29, 1969 Mr. Joseph E.

All of these young people are Master 's Degree candidates in their r espective fields. New York Fellows are assigned to agency heads and Mayoral assistants and given commensurate responsibilities . This program is a di rect parallel to the White House Fellows started by John Gardner under President Kennedy , Atlanta deserves such a program. In my opinion, these interns should be handled separately from the Atlant a Urban Corps since they will be year-round and will r equire special counseling and guidance only available f rom a source such as your of f'i ce . I would be glad to submit a detailed proposal for an Atlanta Urban Fellows Program and also pursue Foundation funding if you are interested.

Financial details of the program and th e criteria for placement in your department of the interns will be discussed in a meeting of City department heads on Tuesday, April 8, 1969 , at 2: 00 p. m. in Committee R o om 2 in City Hall. Mr. E. H. Under wo od will explain financial details and Sam Williams w ill explain the working procedure of the Urban C o rps. If you are unable to attend, please send one person from your department whom you designate as your permanent department liaison with Urban C o rps throughout the summer of 1969. This meeting is essential to · explain information critical to intern job development. Problems unique to ea·c h department will be worked out individually at a later time. Attached is a sheet to briefly explain the Urban C or ps program for your information. Thank you for your cooperation. /fy �ATLANTA URBAN CORPS The Atlanta Urban C o rps is a college student intern program jointly sponsored by Atlanta 1 s colleges and students, the City Government of Atlanta, private agencies, Atlanta businesses, and the Federal Govern- mento The bulk of intern salaries will be furnished 80% by the Office of Education through college financial aid offices and 20% by the City of Atlantao The program will be administered by a professional and student staff directed by a Board representing participating agencies and students. The intern I s job experience should not only be beneficial to the City but it must be an e ducationally relevant experience for the student. This is not a "make-work 11 program. His service -l earning e x p e rience should give him an overall view of the role this department plays in solving Atlanta I s problems. It should be i ntellectually challengi ng. D e partme ntal inte rn r e que sts should b e specific not only on exp ect e d education but on detail ed job d e scriptions so ade quate tal e nt may be r e cruite d.

EARL LANDER S, Ad mi nis trati ve Assis tant MRS. ANN M. MO SES, Ex ecutive Secr etary DANE . SWEAT, JR ., Direct or of Governm ental Lia ison Mr. John Cox E x ecutive Director Atlanta Children and Youth Services Council City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear John: Several weeks ago the decision was made that in order to get the Urban Corps Program established and functioning this summer it would be necessary to tie the administration of the Urban C c rps to an existing City ag e ncy. It was my recomme ndation that we use the Atlanta Childr e n and Y o uth S e rvices C o uncil as th e administrative v e hicl e for g etting the Atlanta Urban Corps underway. There was much pr e ssur e from the students and others to plac e the administration of the Urban Corps dir e ctly in the Mayor's Office and there has been much fe e ling all alon g that this is where it must be located if it is to gain th e str e n g th n e cessary to make it through its initial org a nization s ta ge s. I As w e have b e come mor e and mor e involv e d in th e l egal and finan c i a l m e chani c s of e stabli s hin g th e Urb a n Corps Pr o g r a m, it has become mor e appar e nt that w e should hav e g o ne ah e ad and ti e d it to th e Mayor's Offic e until such time as th e non-profit Urban C o rps organization can sta nd on its o w n. In vi ew of so m e o f the r e quir e m e nt s for contractin g a n d for g a1n 1ng progr a m s u p p o rt, it i s th e r e co m1ne n dati on of thi s o ffi ce , th e Cit y Attorn ey, th e D ir ect o r of Fina n ce that we g o a h ead and ti e· it t o th e M a yor's Offic e a t this poi n t . �Mr. C ox Page Two May 15, 1969 This sum.mer our payroll will total almost $270,000 which necessitates a special payroll account in the City's Data Processing and Finance Department. Since this account requires departmental sponsorship, that means all employees of that department would be tallied on the same le'dger and bank account which co~d confuse an already complicated system if lumped into a small department such as the Youth Council. The Accounting Department is creating a special billing department due to the size and number of checks to be issued. This can be done under no presently existing department since we will be billing other City departments and private agencies. In dealing with other City agencies, it is easier to influence their opinion and participation if they realize the Mayor is sponsoring the program. Also, this keeps us from inher itin g inter-departmental conflicts that virtually any department would have accumulated. C ontacting colleges at all levels is much easier from a formal relations point of view if it is done through the chief ~xe cu.ti ve' s office. This advantage can save us valuabl e time in Atlanta on certain campuses due to political problems. We will deal with six other government units in Atlp..nta at the hi ghest level; therefore, our base in Atlanta City G o vernment should be known and respected. Another point that keeps coming up from the students and others in the business and academic community is that 13 out of the 14 Urban Corps programs op e rating in the country are operating directly out of the chief executive's office of each city. The fourteenth agency is operated out of a Model Cities agency. Since you did not ask for th e program to be placed under th e Y outh C ouncil to start with and sinc e I hav e felt all along that we might have taken advantage of you and your staff by shoving this great a dm.inistrativ e burden upon you, it is our intention to go ahead and do w hat we should have don e in the fir s t place and plac e th e Urban C o rps under th e Mayor's Offi ce for th e ti1n e b e in g . If you hav e any stron g f ee lin gs about this e ith er way , I wo ul d appreciate you l e ttin g us know ri ght a way. �Mr. C ox Page Thr ee May l&, 1969 Thank you for your cooperation and h e lp.

Please notify Sam Williams of any additions or corrections . Also enclosed is a copy of the By-laws which were unavailable at the meeting. These were accepted as a beginning set until the next meeting I feel it necessary to tell you that in my opinion these By-laws. which I hadn't seen prior to the meeting . are so poorly prepared that the task of revision is rather a task of starting over. I have advised Dr . Bloom . as Chairman of the By- laws Counnittee ~ of my feelings. I am also passing on to him what constructive comments I can. I hope you will do the same , The Urban Corps effort .is continuing under the leadership of Sam Williams and the student s who are giving so much ·of their time to it . A large number of students will be placed in community service positions this summer as a result of their work and an integrated educational program is being prepared . It seems to me that the task of the Board of Trustees is to develop a structure that can represent the various interests in an Urban Corps . assume responsibility for operation of an Urban Corps 1• and assure its continuat i on , In view of the requir~ments of By- laws development an~ the ~ressin~ demanos of irmnediate program operations 1 the May meeting of 'the Board of Trustees is postponed until the By- laws Committee is ready to report and the Staff Director if-J prepared to present a review of program operation.

All of these young people are Master 's Degree candidates in their r espective fields. New York Fellows are assigned to agency heads and Mayoral assistants and given commensurate responsibilities . This program is a di rect parallel to the White House Fellows started by John Gardner under President Kennedy , Atlanta deserves such a program. In my opinion, these interns should be handled separately from the Atlant a Urban Corps since they will be year-round and will r equire special counseling and guidance only available f rom a source such as your of f'i ce . I would be glad to submit a detailed proposal for an Atlanta Urban Fellows Program and also pursue Foundation funding if you are interested. Enclosure cc: Mr. Dan Sweat Mr. Charles Davis ' / J/ // �

SWEAT, JR., Director of Governmental Liaison ME MORAND.UM To: Concerned Parties From: Sam Williams, Staff Director, Atlanta Urban Corps Subject: Urban Corps Status Tuesday, April 1, Sam Williams assumed position of Urban Corps staff director, salaried by Southern Regional Education Board and "loaned" to the Atlanta Youth Council. Most of the first week was spent in taking inventory of various phases of the Urban Corps. The most immediate problem is finance. A small administrative fund was donated by SREB and Dan Sweat, Assistant to the Mayor. Present inventory of work study funds available this summer for Urban Corps is 138 student positions at 80% cost. All of these are not firm commitments. VISTA wili" finance 25 interns at full cost. Mr. ·Bill Ramsay and Charles Sweet are visiting financial aid offic3s of Atlanta colleges in an effort to "squeeze" more off-ca!llpus work study funds free. Fund raising from private sources is under way with no results as y~t. A businessmen's luncheon is scheduled for April 29 in an effort to get fund commitments. A fund raising group has been established under the leadership of Bill Adams of Georgia Tech. Definition of job openings is under way. It appears that the city can accept at least 100 students. Definite job slots will be defined" the week of April 11 in city departments. City financing and administration will be explained in a meeting of department heads April 8. A city irtern developing team will visit each department during the week. Internship development of non-federal non-city agencies will begin April 8·. Initial contacts and requests for 158 interns from these agencies has been handled by Terry Allen. Student teams will more clearly define each intern request during the next two weeks and hopefully make new c ontacts in other agencies. �\ Page Two April 8, 1969 \ I Federal agencies have agreed to participate as much as possible. One hundred of their summer interns will attend Urban Corps orientation meetings and our development teams will visit federal agencies to help them in choosing certain intern slots. Federal interns will be chosen and placed by federal agencies by merit of their civil service examination scores. Cooperation this year is hopefully aimed at some placement . system of Urban Corps interns in future years. Joe Kimmir.s has been loaned part-time from the Peace Corps Regional Office and will be assisting on intern development. Diane Wilson, a Spelman graduate, has been hired fulltime to assist in internship development. Russ Caldwell will work part-time in program development and is on loan from the Georgia Municipal League. Fulltime secretaries are badly needed. Urban Corps offices· will open the week of April 11. The address will be I • 30 Courtland Street, Atlanta, Georgia 30303. The telephone number is 525-2662. We hope to have someone manning the phones by Monday, I April 14. Calls are presently being handled through the Youth Council at ~22-4463, Ext. 437. · · I . . ' Student recruitment will begin thro_ugh financial aid offices in each college the week of April 18. Mayor Allen will make a formal announcement of the city's participation April 9 in a press release. Brochures describing the Urban Corps and student application forms will be printed the week of April 11. The Board of Trustees will meet April 18 to elect 8 people to the E x ecutive Board and to pass resolutions and approve minutes so the IRS will grant us a tax e x empt status for donations. Exact estimates on number of interns is impossible at this time . No work beginning date has been set. The most important fact is that the Urban Corps is alive and struggling to get on its feet.

Judge Jones did not approve Alvin at that ti.me for an internship as a baliff, and he told Alvin that he would call in in the next couple of days. Mr. Dollar subsequently cam.:, to the Atlanta Urban Corps office and spoke with me concerning the position at the Courts. He stated that he had received a call from Judge Jones and was told that he coyld work. if he would cut his hair. It was at that ti.me in an 11 afron hair cut. Mr. Dollar felt he was being denied his rights and had reported the incident to the Community Relations Cormnission. To assure Alvin received a job, I then placed him in the Crime Commission. After telling Alvin this, I called Judge Jones. He stated that he had no person'i:1,l objection to Alvin's hair, but one of the 5 judges said that he would not allow Mr. Dollar in his court unless he got his hair cut. Judge Jones s r id that since he had no power over the other judges, he could not accept Mr. Dollar because the job of baliff required that he work in the courts of all five judges. Judge Jones was very sorry, but he did not see how he .could accept Mr. Dollar under those circumstances. Judge Jones did, however, laud Mr. Dollar's qualifications, and expressed an interest in using other Atlanta Urban Corps interns. �
