The Honorable Ivan Allen, Mayor
City of Atlanta
Atlanta, Georgia

Hy dear Mp, Allen:

The Training Corporation of America (TCA), an affiltate of
Westinghouse Atr Brake Company (WABCO), ts an educattonal organiza-
tion with exténsive experience tn developing, operating, and managing
voeational training programs for the hard-core unemployed. TCA also
has planned and evaluated a variety of educational endeavors in the
U.S. and overseas.

Reeently, TCA has been discussing pre-vocational training for
Atlanta's hard-core unemployed with NAB and the Chamber of Conmerce.
Briefly, we understand, through discussione with Mr. Clinton Rogers,
that Natienal Alliance for Bustnesemen has developed nwnerous job
conmitmente in Atlanta. A program can be developed which would train
the young hard-aore unemployed for these jobs in a non-residential,
co-educational center that will relate itself in a most meaningful
way with your echool system. In this manner, Atlanta's industriee could
fulfill their job commitmente to WAB by hiring trained hard-core unemployed.

Federal funding of euch tratning may be available through a single
training contractor, such as TCA, in the proposed Inner-City Job Corps
Training Center progran to be funded thts swnmer by OFO. Only five
cities are to be funded. The Training Corporation of America, which
operates both OEO and Labor Department training programs, would like
to propose to the OEO the establiehment of ene of these centers in
Atlanta. In order to prepare such a proposal, TCA feela the city's
approval of the Inner-City gob Corpa concept is essential.

Honorable Ivan Allen, Mayor ~2- 27 May 1968

At a mutually agreeable time, we would itke to discuss vith you
and your staff the detatle of sreh a specialized training center for
