NEW YORK COALITION TO UNDERTAKE
IMAGINATIVE JOB TRAINING PROGRAM
Mayor John Lindsay announced last week an imaginative new
program to be launched by the New York Coalition with the
financial backing of the Standard Oil Company of New Jersey.
Under the $125,000 Standard Oil grant, the city's Police
Department will train men and women from poverty areas for
career employment in the private sector. The approximately
50 trainees will perform civilian work in the Department
during half of their work time and attend school the other
half.
They will be paid about $60 a week during the sixmonths training period.
Calling the new endeavor an "experimental program", the
Mayor said "I am delighted that Standard Oil (New Jersey)
has made this project possible.
It is an excellent example
of cooperation between the private and public sectors."
Milo Brisco, a vice president and board member of Standard
Oil (New Jersey) and the company's representative on the
New York Coalition, joined the mayor in making the announcement.
They said the new program, the first to be undertaken by the
New York Coalition, was developed by Police Commissioner
Howard R. Leary and the company..
7he Mayor said the program is not intended to prepare trainees
for employment with city government, but is aimed at preparing
them to qualify for jobs in the general employment market.
