"TOP FORTY" - Interns Meeting

August 4, 1959 - 3pm

Attendance: 32 Interns out of the invited 40



To indoctrinate interns who will be in the City of Atlanta to
prepare them to inform students and faculty on their campus
regarding the Urban Corps. Also, it was hoped that the ''Top

40'' students could present some good organizational ideas for
the fall prograra.

Sarn Williams presented the History of the Urban Corps
from its beginning in New York and on.

The interns were told the purpose of the three seminars,

how this special group was chosen and why they were

Don Eberly, of the Atlanta Service-Learning Conference,

would naturally look for students who "fit the mold."

V. Suggestions for change

there were many students of different levels making diff-

. 4 A .
Expose the interns more to each other which would
make each intern aware of where other interns are-and

could possibly develop into interns using each other's
services and help.

Send a list of all interns to each intern and their agency.

Have interns on each campus screen other interns for
participation in the program.

Orient more Urban Corps jobs to outside administrative
city departments.
