Regarding meeting ~sterday with FEB, I discussed the
possibilities with Jack and Virginia and here are the
areas of agreement: (Memo from Jack will follow)
1.
They will prepare Operation Champ program for submission
to HEW for possible funding under family yand children
services. Jack will contact you for names and titles
of contacts.
2.
I will ask Community Relations Commission and Community
Council to provide feed-back that will be pertinent
to the need for above program during summer of 1967.
Please advise if you want me to do this.
3.
Since personnel and equipment are the big needs to
operate the Neighborhood Playlots effectively, Jack
and Virginia will review:
a.
Their personnel requ irements to determine if they
can use additional personnel through NYC, etc. I
don't think we can get summer help through AIEP
(USEP) since this program is to develop mong-term
job opportunities.
b.
Their equipment need s for such items as portabl e
ise chests, portable shelters (tarpaulins), etc.,
that are needed on Playlots.
4.
They will explore how Playlot progra m can be further
enhanced to provide more of a day-camp experience,
w1th mo re a rt s , c raft s , et c . In connect 1 on with this ,
I am contacting Boy Sc outs, Girl Scouts and Camp Fire
Girls and asking each to develop a schedule to have a
team visit each Playlot one or more times during the
summer for the purpos _ of talking to boys and girls
about their prog rams and putting on meaningful demonstrations of opportunities available in their programs .
They seem interested in doing some thing like this.
5.
They seem enthusiastic about possibly having a summer
development program at the undeveloped Allatoona site to:
a.
Be~in preparing this site for use as a campsite in
b.
Provide emp loyment opportunities through the NYC
(here again I doubt if the AI EP could be used here,
unless the jobs lead on to something more perma nent).
c.
In addition, by providing outdoor employment, this
could be a meaningfu l camping substitute for these
young people.
