Economic Opportunity Atlanta, Inc. serves all of Fulton, Gwinnett and Rockdale Counties and the City of Atlanta, including that portion of Atlanta in DeKalb County. This service is a result of authorization by each of the three counties and the City of Atlanta contained in substantially identical resolutions of the governing bodies of each of the four jurisdictions. As a first step in this procedure, each of the four jurisdictions should complete the attached CAP Form #69, a statement of intention to designate a community action agency. To continue EOA as your agency, the form should be completed as indicated, or otherwise as provided for if you desire a change. Next steps will provide that political sub-divisions within the three counties be advised of your intention to name EOA as the continuing community action agency; provision for a public hear- ing on the matter; and an opportunity for individual political sub-divisions not to participate if they so choose. Mr. Jim Parham, Mayor Allen -2- March 5, 1968 Executive Administrator of EOA, and other members of our staff will work with your representative to conform to these procedures as simply as possible. Your continued support and cooperation will be greatly appreciated. Sincerely, no fer hled he 3 OLsrHA UILLET C ES Chairman, Board of Directors BJ/kd Attachment cc: Mr. Jim Parham

Sweat, Jr. Director of Governmental Liaison City of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Dan: Thanks for your letter of February 6th recommending Mr. Johnny Robinson to serve on our planning committee for the New Careers conference. I shall contact Mr. Robinson today. In regard to the involvement of the Urban Coalition, we are con- sidering the idea of inviting representatives from industry to attend the conference. Frank Riessman suggested the idea in that the Federal government is asking for greater participation from private industry in regard to employing the hard core poor. I am not certain that this is an area of concern for the Urban Coalition. However, the employment of the poor is of major concern for urban areas. The New Careers strategy has implications for industry. I am enclosing a copy of a paper on "New Careers in Industry" by Riessman and Paniagua. If you feel that the steering committee of the Atlanta Urban Coalition would be interested in the con- ference, we shall be glad to work with you. Sincerely yours, Uf A——— TILMAN C, COTHRAN Director TCC:dwa ptete®

C. 20506 Dear Tom: I want to thank you again for the fine show you put on for Sargent Shriver on his visit to Atlanta, In the three or four visits by Mr. Shriver here that I have been involved in things have not always gone as smoothly as they did on this visit. I am sure that everyone else is in agreement with me that your handling of the various aspects of the visit was done very professionally and in a responsible manner, I have had several comments from the press noting that it was a real relief to have a person with your attitude organizing a visit for a high-ranking Federal official. Too often advance men to more harm than good. Enclosed is a key chain which you were interested in from the Mayor. Let us know if we can be of any help to you in the future, Sincerely yours, Dan Sweat DS:fy

"Comparable high percentages of fee-paid jobs would be found in other major cities", the officer said. "Many agencies will not even list an opening unless the fee is paid by the employer. It's a worker's market." (The average fee is 10% of the first month's salary.) A survey 0£ hiring costs paid by 17 firms in the Rochester, N. Y. area (9 manufacturing and 8 non-manufacturing firms) indicates a total over 3 months (June and November, 1965 and February, 1966) of $278,000, with 2/3 of this amount reported by the manufacturing companies, and the balance by the nonmanufacturing. Average cost per hire was $222 for manufacturers and $138 £or non-manfacturers. 1 i Spurred by the urgency of' their requirements, business firms invest heavily in improving the skills ' and knowledge of their employees with educational and training programs: "· • • In 1965 3usiness Week estimated a total amount of $18 billion and Fortune gave a higher figure of $2~ billion (spent by private industry in this area). More recently, it has been estimated that industry spent $17 billion in 1 966 in this area. 11 2 I I l \ ' Natl .

' Serv~ce institutions, such as banks, have also £ound it worthwhile to reach out to the disadvantaged £or recruiting workers and £acilitating education to them on the job. Chase Manhattan Bank established a job-training program in 1964 £or high school s~udents £rom the ha~d-core poverty areas. Many 0£ the trainees are potential drop-outs and have police records. Students entering the program at the junior year of high school receive 2l months 0£ basic education and instruction in banking and £inance. They attend classes at the bank from 2 to 5 p.m. daily and are paid $1.86 per hour. They continue to attend high school during the morning. Aft-2r g:cadua·i:ion they are hired for entry clerical positions. They may go on to college on their own time, with aid ~rom the bank via its tuition refund program. Xerox Corporation's Project Step-Up was another valuable demonstration of the response of the poor to a program that links education to employment. Project Step-Up was created to explore the fe a sibility of recruiting, hiring, training and giving remedial education to persons from the underprivileged community. The program was postulated on two basic assumptions: I I 1. It is good business, one that e nhances the pro£itmaking apparatus. 2. The company could cut a clear path for itself to a realistic solution for one of the nation's most complex problems: HovJ to open up skilled employment oppor tunities to the unemployed. j Many of the trainee s had police records, b ad credit ratings and spotty emp loym8nt hist o ries. i To qualify for training they had to be unemployed or underempioyed, receive substantially less than a pas s ing score on the ! company's regular employment te s ts and not have finished high school. (~ I The 19 week training period took place during the day-shift working hours.. 40% of the time was for classroom instruction, and the rest for work and informal counseling to support the new learning and adjustment to supervision and work ruleso Trainees were paid an hourly rate slightly below that for l I �-11\ .... regular new employees and were eligible for all company benefits. Al~ the trainees completed the program and qualified for regular employment. I Foremen reported that trainees adjusted well and met all standards. Xerox officials were impressed by the trainees' commitment, their perseverance and their overall reaction to the training, the work environment and to other employees. The regular employees strongly supported the program. A Xerox spokesman said that the program was economical because aside from the men who were trained, the company was able to hire immediately four times as many applicing to cont de Since · CC:d • �I NFORMATION COPY - CI TY OF.
