NEWS OF THE CORPS
Atlanta Urban Corps

Government Liason
Mayor's Office
City Hall
Atlanta , Georgia
30 Courtland Street, N. E.
Atlanta, Georgia 30303
Volume IV
HlTERNS hA ·l fl ~
-1£!. CENTER
Located in the recreation area of Trinity
t·;e thodist Church , .265 Washington Street , is
t he Walk- In Counseling Center directed by the
the Atlanta Youth Council. The Center is a new
proj ect which is dedicated to serving the immediate personal problems of the 13-21 year age
group. Three Atlanta Urban Corps interns are
managing the program.
In an interview with Loyd Sanders , intern
from Morehouse College , it was learned that
Sanders , Bill Patter son (Univ. o f Indiana) ,
and Jo Ingle (Georgia College at Milledgeville)
spend some seventy hours per week counseling
young people whose problems range from general
feelings of dejection and lack of personal
value
drug addiction and illigitimate pregnancies.
As the problems of the Center's clientele
vary in degrees of urgency and acuteness, Loyd,
Bill and Jo have learned through sessions o f
debriefing that each must be handled quite
s eparately. The interns are fully aware of
their own limitations in the field of counseling although all three are upper-level psycholo gy
majors at their respe£tive colleges . Therefore,
the Center relie s heavily on the relationship
i t has est abl ished with various social service
agencies which are prepared to offer professional
assistance in the treatmen t of more severe cases
of adolescen t problems.
Loyd praised Georgia State College ' s willingness to donate professional time at a moment ' s
notice . Hours of psychological testing and the
like are administered by Georgia Stat e professionals who cari be at th e Center within five
minutes after having_ been contacted. Great
assistance has come too from Mr. John Cox, director
of the Atlanta Youth Council , Nr. Lewis Dinkins ,
assistant to t,,,r. Cox, Mrs. Yvonne Bingham, counselor from Atlanta University , and Mr. David
\'/eddi nton, director of the Walk-In Center.
Of concern to Sanders and to the other t wo
interns is the location of the Walk-In Center.
Trinity Methodist is located under the shadow of
City Hall itself, and though the Center is grateful to have the comfortable space in the Church,
it seems that the Walk-In pDogram might be far
more effective were it located in the area of the
city were young people live and feel most natural .
As Loyd pointed out , 11 Who is i;oing to just 'Walk
in to 265 Was hington Street and bare their souls? 11
Sanders feels that the Center might more effectively be located in the Capitol Ho mes area.
For the present ,1 .. however , the Center is operating with as much effec tiveness as these three
interns can foster . A campaign is on to publicize the program so that young people can learn
where they can come for personal counseling and
professional help. Loyd , B811 and Jo man the
Center from 11 a . m. to 11 p . m. six days per week.
They find that most young people respond to th e
Center ' s pro gram in the evening and t hus have
geared t heir working .hours to meet the needs of
the people whom they serve. If the Walk-In Center
proves s uccessful in i ts initial operation it is
hoped that an expansion program will result in
branch offices out in the areas of the city where
counseling for adolescents is so desperately needed.
At the Walk-In Counseling Center are three Urban
Corps interns who are applying their experienc e
and educational training to a real need of the
city, who are realizing their limitations and
finding ways to supplement their own service capaci ties, and who are creatively planning for a
more effective program. Theirs is a job of
responsibility and relevancy .
ATLANTA .!Lfil?Mi CORPS REPRESENTED llL NEW XQEK
In a fiv e day trip to t he national of fi c e
of the Urban Corps in new York City, Sam Williams,
direc to r of the Atlanta Urban Corps , learne d of
the operations of other Urban Corps throughout
the na tion and represented our Atlanta procram
reporting on its progress, its problems and
successes. At th e meeting were directors from
ei gh t different Urban Corps and represen tatives
fro m six other cities which at present do not
have Urban Corps but are considering establishing
the Urban Corps program .
After hearing reports from the directors of
Urban Corps in cities such as New York, Boston ,
Dayton, Detroit, and San Francisc9 , Bo.11l concludes
that the Atlanta program is unique in its empl1asis on the educational aspect of the intern experience. Only in Syracuse, N. Y. does there exist
a like effort to involve an educationally sound
learning experience for Urban Corps interns.
In that city I s Urban Corpe program fairly succuss:fUl attempts have been made to develop

Dear Intern Supervisor:
As you know, we are presently planning our fall intern program
and also trying to project needs for next summer. In order to support
a year-round operation and adequately prepare for a large summer
influx of interns, we need funds for a full-time staff.
We are approaching private donors and government agencies
for administrative funds, but need some proof of performance of
interns from you.
Will you please write a letter to us to be used for fund raising
that gives a brief outline of y our opinions of the Urban Corps and the
interns placed with your agency. We also welcome constructive
criticism.
_Your prompt cooperation will be greatly appreciated.

INTRODUCTION
The Service-Learning Concept
To serve and to learn ; these fundamental goals of our society are engrained in the American rhetoric.
But how to serve? and how to learn?
An institutionalized, bureau-
cratized 20th Century America has effectively limited the answers to these
questions.
For "servtce to country" America legislatively requires mili-
tary duty only, which many of today's young people find morally questionable.
For "learning" we have complex university systems with :!.imj_ted abi-
lity to respond to the individual and with oftimes old-fashioned views of
what is education and what is not.
However, considerable attention is currently being given to the role
of uni versitie s i n service to soci ety.
At one extreme, a r guments a r e
heard that community involvement by an academic institution thr eatens its
integrity and dra ins its r e source s.
At t he ot he r end of the spe c trum of
opinion i s the v iew of the unive rsity as a shaper of s oci ety with speci al
social responsibi lities
because of its objectivity , standar ds, and resources
of knowledge .
These arguments abou t campus - in- c ommunity may obscure fundamental
que stions of the r ole cf the community a s an educati or.al resour ce.
Can the
univ ersity pe rform i ts primary func t i ons of education and t he discove ry of r;.,,,w
knowl edge without an involvement in s oc i e t y ?
Can educational institutions
dev elop the type of manpo~er needed by a r apidly changing soc iety, both as
professional s and as citizens in a democracy, without i n cludi ng the resources
of socie tal experience i n t he educational process?
How migh t community
service, sought by many student s, best be deslgned as a learnlng experiec1ce
and integrated with other. acpects of a total educational program?
.i.
�2
It is the thesis of the ,::onvenors of this Conference--many cf whom a.re
a t the interface between education aud community--that by combining the ne eds
and resources of education both will better be served.
It is hypotlies i zed
that the tensio~ between the practical urgent demands of community and the
requirements of disciplined rational thought of education can be a very productive force for the development of society and for l earning and the advancement of knowledge.
This combination of action and reflection, of experience and examina t:i.c,:-. )
this integration of service and learning can foster a style of life where
education and vocation are parts of the same fabric and the gap between
community and education is closed.
Simply stated, then, s e r vice-learning
is a n integration of the accomplishment of a needed task with educational
growth.
I t is clear tha t greater student involvement i n community affa irs i s
coming--it i s already here in many ways bu t i t i s grouing .
Student s want i t ,
agencies need their servi ces, colleges increasingly are encouraging it.
Na.tional l egi sla t i on to supplement Peace Corps, VISTA, Teacher Corps , and
o ::her programs i s under consideration in Washington:
a r e we prepared t o
utilize these growing opportunities productivel y f 0r all pa rties?
A new approach is both ne cessa ry and pos s ible.
It r equires new meaning
for upracticality," new openness to change, new commitment to experiment ation, new acceptance of the ability of youth, and indeed new social institutions and attitudes • • • • t o say nothing of competent human beings who
are prepared to function in the new s ociety.
It is to search for these new attitudes and processes that the Atlanta
Service-Learning Conference is convened.

Consequently, the Atlan ta Service-Learning Conf erence was organized

conce:pt, to define the elements necessary fo r a succe 3s ful program, a.r:.d t0
structure and implement a program in the Atlanta area to s e!'.'ve as a moo.el
for similar pr ograms in other urban center s.
The diversi t y of the spon-

a t both national and local le,.,·els for the developmen t of t h is prog!.' am.
The
list of sponsors includes:

on a six-month period for t he conference during which the participants rn:l s ht.
uti l i ze all avai lable resources and examine in depth se,,eral i mpor t an t aspec t s of the service-lear ni ng concept.
In order to faci l i t ate this t ype of
s tudy , the con fer ence has been div ided into s i~ wor k groups:
namely, s er vice,
learning, curriculum and i n ter- institutiona l relations , .:esear '!h, fin.nn ce,
and methods and progl'.'ams .

Each of the work groups will meet in a number of individual s~ssions
in order to study the topic, r aise pertinent questions, and suggest possible answers.
During the six-·month period each work group will chair a
formal session of the conference,
These sessions will have the dual roles
of first, allowing the host group to profit from the e.xperie:'.J.ce of the
other participants and, second, giving each participant the opportunity ~o
relate his area of interest and study to the complete work of the conference.
Having profited from this exchange of ideas, each work group will
produce a report to be submitted to a Steering Ccmmittee, composed of· work
group chairmen and re~,resentatives of the sponsoring organizations.
Th:ts
Steering Committee will chair the final session of the CuJ ference, to be
held in December,
At this session the integrated report will be presented
and a program will be proposed for implementation.
The first session of the Conference was held on June 30 and July 1
and attended by over 300 persons.
The format of t h e initi al meeting in-
cluded a number of speake r s, s eminars to introduce par ~icipants to the
concept of service-learning, and organi zational meetings of the work
groups.
The balance of this r eport contains the keynot e address by U.S.
Commissioner of Education, James E. Allen, Jr., s ummari es of o t he~ speeches
and discussions, and a list of participants who attended the inaugura l
session.
Coincide nt wit h t he l aunching of the Conference has been the creation
in 1969 of t he At lant a Ur ban Cor ps , a gr oup of 220 student s ser ving ful l time throughout the summer with 15 city and 35 private non-pr ofit or ganizations i n Atlant a.

Economic Development Administration, Office of Economic Opportunity and Department of Labor is providing support along with the Atlanta businessmen and
foundations to cover administrative costs and stipends for interns not
eligible for the Work-Study Program.
VISTA has assigned 25 associate
positions to operate under Urban Corps auspices.
Sam Williams, director of the Atlanta Urban Corps, points to the
relevance of the educational aspect of the program.
Nine staff members
make up the evaluation team which is responsible for developing and
assuring an education dimension for each intern's summer assignment.
Five professors serve as counselors to lend technical c:.nd educational
assistance to individual interns and groups of interns , and one professio1m:1•
~nd three student staff members in the office plan seminars and coordina te
oi:h er means of helping the interns make their summer work experiences
e.,:ucationally relevant.
Each student is required to present to the Urban
Corps a report on his internship at the completion of his service period.
Thus the Urban Cor ps, in addition to accomplishing needed tasks in the
community and offering both a summer job and a relevant educational experj_ence to its members, provides a practical service-learning laboratory for
the Confer ence.
Through observation of the Urban Cor ps and participation
of its members, the Confer ence is assured the necessary dialogue be tween
theory and practice.
This is the setting in which the Conference is convened.
Each of a
variety of perspectives has a distinct contribution t o make to the enterprise .
Additional participants, assistance and information are welcome.
I t i s only a beginning.
But if theory and practice, students and faculty,
public and private bodies int eract in the manner outlined, the Conference
will have something significant to say to Atlanta and the nation by the eLd of
1969 .

EDUCATIONAL NEEDS OF YOUNG PEOPLE TODAY
6
Remarks by James E. Allen, Jr.
Assistant Secretary for Education
and
U.S. Commissioner of Education
None of you would be here today at this conference on service-learning
if you were not aware of how different the educational needs of young
people are today from those of past generations.
All of you know
that the needs of the new generation are defin°ed by its aspirations.
And that aspiration is the edge of the great divide between the
generations.
For past generations,--and I mean not only the parents but the
older brothers and sisters of today's young people--the touchstone was
vocation.
well-being.
The career as a means to the economic ends of material
The career as a means to the psychological ends realized
in achievement, success, and prestige.
Sometimes, of course, members of preceding generations thought
of the career as an avenue of service to conceptions beyond the
self--there are many professions with a humanitarian dimension in both
theory and practice.
But for most people, the furtherance of such ideals
as the betterment of society was accepted as an extra-curricular activity.
Something to be done after the serious business of the day, if time
permitted .
�7
For large and increasing numbers of young people today this
sj_tuation is not only changed but reversed.
It is the pursuit of
goals beyond the self that comes first and the money and success that
take second place,
Clearly it will take a new kind of educatj_on to accommodate such
a change in traditional ways of thinking about man and society.
We
are still in the process of identifying it, but some things we know.
For example, we can be sure that an education that fits the needs
of young people today must be broader than the school.
Among the many
artificialities the young reject is the idea that the classroom and
the library are the best, if not the only, places for learning.
Today's youth is as bored with four wall abstractions as it is with
materialism.
Today's youth want an education geared to realities more vital
t han eit,her· theory or things.
values.
It is less interested in ideas than in
Young people want their education to take them past knowledge
to wisdom, and past wisdom to action--the kind of action that ca n

asking for.
But it is precisely responsibility that they are
Some people think youth wants to start at the top and
rearrange society without bothering to find out what makes our institutions operate.
In my opinion, it is the other way around.
Young
people want first-hand experience with our institutions to teach them
their sociology.
They want to learn the mechanics of social change
by experimenting where it can actually happen.
This is the positive side of activism.
This is what has taken
students out of classrooms andaway from well-paid, conventional jobs,
leading them instead into the Peace Corps, Vista, and the Teacher Corps.
This positive activism has moved young people past the Peace Corps,
Vista, and the Teacher Corps; it has inspired them to invent their own
ways of reaching people who need help.
Store-front schools, street
academies and many other innovative institutions testify to their
enterprise.
By nm,,1 it is quite clear that the activism of the 1960's is much
different from that of other decades.
The meaning of the difference
has been captured in the words of Arthur Mendel, professor of Russian
. history at the University of Michigan "Youth no longer speaks for
itself; it defines an era."
At the same time, in all their eagerness for a chance t o deal
directly with the raw stuff of history, in the making, today's young
�9
people continue to want what school in the old classroom-and-library
sense of the word should and can give them.
They want background
against which they can measure their experience.
They want an education
that breaks down the old barriers between school and community without
breaking down either the school or the community.
This is what work-study programs are all about.
There is no trend
in education more promising, and the Federal Government is wholeheartedly
behind it.
Secretary Finch and my colleagues i n the Office of Education
are convinced advocates of the work-study concept, and the Department
of Health, Education, and Welfare is actively involved in promoting it.
It is very much in line with President Nixon ' s emphasis on volunteer
effort as the key to community renewal.
The President has called for
a national clearinghouse on voluntary activities, with a computerized
data bank to make available information about what has been t r ied a nd
wher e , how well i t work ed, and what the problems were.
The student
emp loyees wor king at HEW this summer will hel p assemble i nformation

As you know, HEW is r e spons ib le for administering a pr ogr am of
Federal grants t o co lleges which pr ovide s s ome 350 , 000 s t udents with
the opportunity t o work on or off t h e campus duri ng their co l l ege ca reer.

�10
Of the 350,000 young people taking part in such work-study programs,
most have been employed on their campuses, but increasing numbers are
employed in local government agencies, schools, hospitals and other
organizations, public and private.
We hope to learn from student community service activities wherever
they are taking place.
In Michigan, for example, we know that students
are leading the way in productive volunteer activities for various
segments of the population of their state .
Currently, some 10,000
student volunteers on the 27 differ8nt Michigan campuses, are engaged
in projects many of which they have developed on their own initiative
and maintain without much fin~ncial help from government sources.
As
an example of the varied and numer01.1s proj ,:,cts, agriculture students
from Michigan State University work together with inner city people in
developing community garden cooperatives.
Elsewhere in the nation we find students contributing
social service to their communities.
other types of
There is the Memphis Area Project
South which sponsors "clothes closets " for needy families.
Through
this project, students also collaborate in planned parenthood programs
in South Memphis and help in nutrition classes for low-income people.
Your own city has always been noted for its progressiveness.
The fact that Atlanta is hosting the opening of the six-month conference
is a fine example.
It is equally encouraging to see Atlanta adopt the
program of the Urban Corps as a model to meet urban needs .
�11
Last summer there were 76,000 students employed in programs
supported by Federal work-study funds.
This summer, the Office of Education will have 225 students on
its own payroll.
I should like to tell you something about the projected
activities of these summer employees.
A goal of the summer program
is to promote communication between government and the youth community.
Some students will be organizing seminars for the Office staff. on
topics of concern and "relevance" to students today.
Such topics
include curriculum reform, university administration, urban universities ,
and an urban extension service.
Other students will be researching
programs and practices of the Office as related to student and youth
participation.
In particular we hope they will gather and analyze
information on activities in the areas of work-study and volunteer
community service, in order to help us determi ne where Federal involvement might be most constructive .
t~e can already begin to see the shape of some of the problems to
be dealt with .
One is how to get more of the students involved in
work-study programs off the campus, into the communi ty.
We would like
to see the ratio of on- campus to off-campus work reversed, with the
majority working off-campus instead of t he opposi te situation which
prevails now.
Another problem is how to overcome the dilemmas and disadvantages
of t he work- study pr ogr am.
Such as the difficulty of int egr a ting new
people i nto es t abl ished or ganizat ions on a short- t i me basis.
The
accreditadon dilemma--it i s agree d tha t there should b e recognition
of service as a part of higher educa tion, ye t some univers ities have
�12
found that formal accreditation of cot!lIIlunity work turns it into a
nine-to-five routine and diminishes dedication.
However, other
universities and colleges have developed means for granting academic
credit to learning-service activities , making them integral to the
academic life .
These are not impossible problems.
Like you, we believe that what
Aristotle said is t r ue , "What we have to learn to do , we learn by do_ing . "
We, too, will l earn by doing.
We feel that we are opening up avenues of many kinds--between
youth and the larger com.~unity, between youth and government , between
the generations.
We are committed to the new view of educational needs
that this implies.
The experience of gLoups like yours will be helpf ul to us as we
try to adapt the Federal Government's role to the changes taking place
i n our society .
We look forward to your r ecommendations as you r eview
and study the l e arning-servi ce concept i n the months ahead .
I hope we
~an draw on t he r eport of your del i berations as a source of new models
f or student contribu tion to community renewa l.
With so much of the business of Ameri ca
a nd the wor ld still
unfinished, it i s hear tening indeed to obser ve t ha t per ha ps t he
greates t awareness of this unfinished business exis t s in the young.
The need, therefore, is to concentrate on ways of helping the young
to realize the potential of their new sense of purp ose and spirit for
service.
This involves intens ive efforts -- far greater than yet
�13
evidenced.
It also places upon our colleges and universities the
obligation to examine their policies and practices and to make those
adjustments necessary for the proper exercise of student participation.
So rather than challenging youth, it is they who are challenging us
and it is, I believe, a most heartening and hopeful situation when
exhortation is more needed by age than by youth.

I NAUGURAL MEETING SUMMARIES
Welcome by Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr.
Atlanta.'s Mayor Ivan Allen opened the Conference on June 30 by
focusing on the problems of the cities and the effect t hat young


p0ople can have on the solutions.


Allen defined the foremost urban


problems as race, t r ansportation, and financing of city services.


He said tha.t although
11
the structure of government is capab1e of
coping with these problems ••• it is the failure of man to a.dapt
which prevents the solution. n
"Atla.nta, 11 sa.id Mayor Allen,
"welcomes the entrance into city government of a group of
concerned young citizens."
He concluded that if the need is going
to be met, it will be met by the youthful generation "that has
the concern."

Georgia. Tech Community Services Office
Don Nelson reported that the Georgia Tech community had thought
that money could solve the problems of urban America.
Now, he said,
we are discovering tha.t we can't live in a major city and not respond
with some kind of feeling or action.
It's no longer a question of
money but how one commits himself to what's happening around him
that really counts .
Dean Miller Templeton and he got together in November, 1969,
and found that fifteen or twenty programs were being spons ored by
Tech students,so the t wo of them formed the Community Services
Coordinating Staff.
Their primary objective was to coordinate the
pr ojects then operating and to try to get more students and f aculty

He said that it was an
action program on the part of private enterprise , without government
funds, to provide business opportunities to low income and disadvantaged
Americans.
It is based on simplicity and sincerity and on four basic
assumptions:
(1)
Two of the fundamental principals of democracy are government
by reason, not force, and the most good for the most people.
(2)
Everyone wants to improve his standard of living.
(3)
The incentive method is the best way to accomplish things.
( 4)
Government steps in to f ill needs when business does not.
He -said that the 1'Georgia Plan" was inagura.ted in Savannah with a.

colleges, Armstrong and Savannah State.
This was such a. success that

The challenge wa.s not met at that time, but in the summer of 1968
the Georgia. chapter decided to explore possibilities in this area.
After one year of planning fifteen students from eleven colleges and
five faculty advisors began a ten week work assignment . in state and
local government agencies.
From over forty applications, the students
chosen were selected on the basis of academic achievement, written
expression, personality and character references.
Manpower Survey
Tara. Swartsel reported that the Department of Labor is conducting
a survey to find out how student manpower is being used in Atlanta.
One student on each of ten campuses in Atlanta is researching to try
to find out what is now available and wha.t the potential is for
service-learning a.tea.ch college.
When a.11 the reports a.re compiled
the schools will be compared and variations will be considered.
The Service-Learning Concept looks good, she said, on paper and
looks like it would apply to everyone, but how can the concept be
applied on all campuses without the curriculum becomi ng "gimicky" ?
Curr iculum committees are jealous of cla.ss t ime.
They don't want to
use a. professor's time and skills and have students taking time out
of the classroom unless they see definite re sults in the field work
as it r elates to t he cla ssroom.

participants of the service-learning conf erence must keep :for emost

Atl ant a 's Urban Obs ervatory
Dan Sweat r eported t hat f i ve years ago Rob er t Wood, Under Secret ary
of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), saw a nee d f or involvement of
the academic community i n t he affairs of t he local community.
The
�18
mechanism he envisioned wa.s a system of urban observatories in major
metropolitan areas.
The passage of the 1968 Housing Act enabled HUD
to assist in establishing urban observatories in Atlanta., Albuquerque,
Baltimore, Kansas City, Milwaukee, Nashville, and Washington, D.C.
The Atlanta Urban Observatory is based at Georgia. State College and
has a close working relationship with City Hall, from which it originated.
It is also in the process of developing linkages with the other colleges
and universities in Atlanta.
Mr. Sweat said he believed tha.t the Atlanta. program ha.s a headstart because the Urban Corps program, whose philosophy is so close to
that of the urban observatory, is already in operation in Atlanta.
Address by Lee Heubner
Lee Heubner, staff assistant to President Nixon, addressed the
Conference at the dinner session on June 30.
He struck a note of
caution, a note of perception and a note of hope for the participants.:
Let's be sure we have projects that make sense in
terms of the people being served and the person being
educated. Unless we're willing to do this rigorously
and precisely and uncompromisingly, I don't think the
service-learning program will be as successful as .it
really ought to be •..•

One thing under discussion in the White House
is a federally- assisted program to support the
position of campus service coordinator, someone to
whom the students could visit to inquire about
specific opportunities in community service. Also,
the service coordinator would discuss with faculty
members questions regarding academic credit and
curricular changes related to community service.

Service-Learning and National Programs
The national and i nternational components of service-l earning
were highlight ed at a symposium that i ncluded Tom Houser, Deputy
Director of t he Peace Corps; H. Jeffrey Binda, Exe cutive As si stant to
the Director of VISTA; Paul Cromwell, Special Assistant to the Director
of the Teacher Corps and Michael Goldstein, Director of the Urban Corps
National Development Office.
Dr. Carl Wieck of Morehouse College was
the moderator.
Noting that the Peace Corps had been in the service-learning
business for eight years, Mr . Houser reported that "most returning
volunteers say they l earned more than they gave. u
Mr. Cromwell said
colleges could become more relevant by working with businesses and
�20
government agencies in arranging work assignments linked with classroom
studies.
Mr. Binda stressed the service aspect, saying it was vital, when
arranging for aid to the poor and disadvantaged, to assign persons
who can do the job well.
Mr, Goldstein, former director of the nation's
first Urban Corps in New York City, outlined the program in which college
students serve with municipal agencies and are funded largely by the
College Work-Study Program.
The panelists agreed that experience in a service-learning
program would be valuable background for entry into a long term service
program.
Also, it would help the participant to decide whether to
apply for such a service program.
Remarks by Edward DuCree and Arthur Hansen
The final session of the Conference dramatically focused on the
diverse and sometimes conflicting interests which must have a part in
determining the nature of a service-learning program.
Ed DuCree ,
director of Emory University's Upward Bound Program, called for the
examination of goals and effects of current service programs.
Quoting from Shakespeare's "Hamlet" , DuCree said the question
remains, "to be or not to be. 11
he s tated .
Black people want to be , to exist ,
Service programs which fail to help people to exist as
human bei ngs are of l ittle or no use, he said ,
For exampl e , he said
that some tutorial pr ograms i n whi ch white vol unteers teach black
ch i ldren have the effect of impr ess i ng on t he childr en the value of
being white rather than t eaching them t he a b e's.
Dr. Hansen, Pres ident el e ct of Georgia Tech, reminded the audience
of the university's traditisma.1 roles of learning and research.
�i
21
Service to the community , ,·rhich became a major goal of many universities
following the land-grant a.ct of a century ago, is also a legitimate
goal, he said.
The question is whether service per~ is a learning
experience and therefore deserving of academic recognition.
Hansen
said he would not want to accredit service experiences until he was
convinced of their learning inputs.
A small demonstration decrying the effect of Georgia. Tech's
expansion on nearby residents interrupted Dr. Hansen's speech and led
to an extended session in which heated debate gradually gave way to
some fundamental problems in the areas of service-learning and
black-white relations.
A partial report on the exchanges is contained
in 'M r. DuCree' s reply to a participant who described the role he was
playing.
.Mr. DuCree said,

Seminar Summaries
. :Midway through the inaugural meeting, seminars were held to discuss all
aspects of the service-learning concept and to assist participants in
selecting a work group.
The seminar chairmen were:
James Austin, Georgia. .Municipal Association
Robert Clayton, Spelman College
Clavin Cox, the Atlanta Constitution
Phillip~ Ruopp, Peace Corps
Russell Williams, Atlanta University
No conclusions emerged from the seminars, but among the comments and
questions were the following :
How is learning-by-serving different from learning-in-the-classroom?
The service-learning concept may lead to a radical change in the
concept of the university and education in general.
Government administrators mu·s t control service-learning programs,
not colleges.
A consortium of colleges should run the service-learning program
in Atlanta.
Can cultural empathy be taught?
High school students, drop-outs, and housewives should be in servicelearning programs.
Urban Corps interns should receive academic credit for their learning
experiences.
Wha t er:iteria should be applied to matching an intern with an opening
to insure th::it pot~. p e r-fht·1nnnoe ;:ind 1An.rnine; wi 1.1 be a·t a high

WORK GROUP SUMMARIES
The Conference is functioning primarily through its six work
groups:
service, learning, curriculm and inter-institutional
relations, finance,research, and methods and programs.
Each work
group is to marshal available resources, study in depth its assigned
topic, sponsor a session of the Conference, and submit a report
describing its observations and reconnnendations leading toward a
comprehensive model for a continuing service-lear n i ng pr ogram.
Sponsorship and dates of subsequent Conference sessions are as

Learning Work Group
Chairman:
Sally cantor, Atlanta Urban Corps Intern
The meeting of the section on Learning was begun by a description of the
Mars Hill Project, its origin and outline.
One enthusiastic professor was
given a grant to instigate and develop interest in the concept of servicelearning .
He looked into curriculum and local service oppor tunities .

work for physical education, sociology, etc.
It b'egan
This be came the ~i e J_n
The communi c1:1t.ion which is
necessary for this to come about smoothly is possible in a small school.
There is a problem in the structure of a large university which makes it almost
impossible to integrate this kind of learning.
How might this be overcome?
Many segments of society are concerned with this kind of l earning taking
place.
Students are the l argest mass of participants .
Thus the training
ground for students, i.e. the university, must be changed first.
There are
places in the traditi onal college stl:ucture which could be changed to be more
in line with this new concept.
an education major.
For example, in the practice-teaching part of
Instead of being a. complete b l ock of time at the end of
the learning period, it would be more relevant and thus valuable to have the
�25
practice-teaching interwoven with the academic study, over a greater length of
time.
Practical experience makes theory more concrete but it requires a pl~ce
to plug into the traditional curriculum.
Practice-teaching is an easier area
to see the possibilities; but how can this type of learnj og be given academic
credit in other courses?
You can learn something from anything you do if you
are pGrceptive, but to be given academic credit what one is doing must be put
to acaa_emic analysis.
Learning is not just of one type; it consists of different processes.
What kind of learning happens when one is put in a context of people and
problem-solving?
If the ultimate goal is being sensitive to each other, how
can one avoid complete relativism?
Perhaps this is only a part of the desired
goal and can be fitted into the whole as a matter of degree.
It would be
valuable to question a.n intern to see if his learning can be classified , i f
an analysis can be made of the learning possibilities .
It is very important,
however, that this not become Step 1, 2, 3 on how to become a successful learner.
There is always the problem of how to bring out what has been, or is
learned.
l>e in g
It is difficult to bring life-style to a conscious level where it
must be for our purposes.
It will be necessary to compare the goals and
patterns of both traditional university-learning and service-learning.
For
example, a university stresses committment to truth, to principle; service
stresses committment to people , to becoming involved with those a.round you.

must have confidence to do this and live with the consequences, be willing to

�26
Questions to be consider ed by the work gr oup include t he following:
Can learning take place i n roles which students consider socially irrel evant ?
How can students be helped to grasp the broader i mplications of what they
really learn by serving?
What relationship exists between individual student goals and the choice
of alternative service opportunities?
How can students be helped to raise the important, r elevant questions
about their service experiences?
How can interested, knowledgeable, and accessible f aculty be identif ied
and enlisted in t he service-learning exper ience ?
What i mplicat i ons of exper ience-ba s ed learning a.re pertinent t o hi gher
education in general?
How, in fa.ct, do students learn from exper ience ? How can it be mea sured ?
How can community needs, student inter ests, and uni ver sity programs i nt er act
to yiel d s ignifi cant l e ar ning on the part of everyone i nvolved?
What methods and techniques are most effective in pr eparing students for
their job and community roles?
Curriculum and I nter- Inst i t uti onal Relations Work Group
Cha i rman:
Dr . William W. Pendleton, Prof essor of Sociol ogy, Emor y Uni versity
In t he openi ng meeting of the curriculum work gr oup t here was a very
general dis cussion of t he problems invol ved in i ncorporating a s ervi ce-J_e:=irnj np;
program into est a:t lished academic f r amework of hi gher education.
A question wa s rai sed as to whet her a service-learning program was a
l egitimat e element of any a.cademic program .
There was s ome debat e as t o
whether it coul d be considered the responsi bi l ity or even a l egitimate function
of a university to provide the student with a broadening experience~
It wa s
decided that one of the maj or tasks of the work group woul d be t he development
of a structure which would i nsure that thE> stnaent utilized t he full learning
pote ntial of the service eA'J)erience.
Several suggested elements of t his str uc ture were:
seminars, and student reports.
facu1 t )r advisors,
�27
There were other questions concerning the basic structure of the program.
For example:
How would service-learning experiences be integrated into the
existing departmental structure?
On what basis would credit be given?
What
would be the ratio of hours worked to credit-hours received?
How many credit-
hours of service-learning could be counted toward graduation?
What channels,
such as independent study, special programs or seminars with labs, aJ.rea.dy exist
which could be used as a. mechanism for giving credit for a service-learning
course?
Certainly the most valuable product of this initial meeting was an
awareness of the complexities of the problems confronting the work group.
A number of questions were raised, several others will be focused on at l ater
meetings.
The following questions a.re a few of those for which the curriculum
work group will attempt to provide conclusion.
What courses now exist as training for other forms of service which could
be relevant to service-learning programs?
What inter ...institutional relations now exist which could be utilized and
developed for internships and program development?
What effects will the service-learning experience have on student
expectations in the curriculum area ?
What are the potentials of a fa culty consultant ser vice?
What a.re the possibilities for utilizing community members a s instructors
or resource people within the classroom ?
What a.re the possibilities for and problems of cross--~r editing

Finance Work Group
Chairman:
Presiding:
William Jones, Department of Health, Education and Wel fare
Charles Hamblen and Charles Moore , Department of Health , Education
and Welfare
The first questions raised about funding were :
who, how much, and bow?
It wa s stated that the program was not to be directed by the Federal gover nment ,
but t hat t he government should be. a source of funds , pr imarily t hrough l ez ~~sla.tion.
�28
lv'T.r. Hamblen reviewed what was available through Federal programs.
He said that perhaJ>s the best sources have suffered a cutback in appropriation
( the Cooperative Education Program and Education for Public Service), b~t they
might be refunded in the next fiscal year.
Mr. HambJ.en was asked how to go
about requesting Work-Study funds.
He sa.id that the application must be made
by an institution by November 1st.
If the institution includes a proposal for
meaningful off-campus activities it will receive priority in the allocation of
Work-Study funds.
It was remarked that many colleges did not use a large
amount of their funds or did not include descriptions of off-campus activity in
their requests for funds.
The funding for such a proposal would be 80%
federally fund~d and 20% funded by the agency.
Discussio~ then centered on the study made by 22 Republican Congressmen
concerntng student unrest.
Their recommendations were:
1.
Don't cut off funds to institutions which have experienced student
rebellions.
2.
Establish a Na:tional Youth Foundation to encom:age student pa.r ti cipation
in community problems.
3.
Incr ease funds fo:i;- student ai q.
4.
The government should expand its lines of communication wi th stu<i..ents .
I n addition to raising money from f ederal programs , it was suggested
that ser vice-learning -pr oje~t. s approach . f'oundations and bus i nes ses as t hey
might have grea.ter fle xibility in a:wa.r ding funds for the purposes of the
particular proj e ct .
It was stated that a progr am al r eady under way might
stand a goo<;l chance of obtaining support as it would demonstrate committment
to the idea .
Other suggestions were that s t udents are good at max imizing funds if
all owed to go after them, and that students should be a par t of the decisionmaking process when financial a.i d of ficer s submit pla.ns for uti lizing WorkStudy funds .
�29
Additional questions to be examined by t he work group are:
(1)
In funding service-learning programs , what share should be borne
by the agency being served ? by the student of a.n educational
institution? by t he government?
(2)
How should the Atlanta Urban Corps be financed in t he future ?
(3) What pr oportions of Work-Study funds should be spent on off-campus
service activities ?
(4)
Should all student s i n a. service-learning program receive a stipend
f or t heir E2Tvices?
Research Work Group

State Col l ege
The i mmediate obje ctive of t he research work group i s t o determine the
av ailab i lit y of student manpower f or s ervi ce -learning programs i n Atlanta .
With over 40,000 college student s in metr o Atlanta , a Confer ence-relat ed
survey i s being made to f i nd out how many of t hem would be interested in
service-lea:rning projects , and under what conditi ons (such a s s tipends and
academi c cr edit) .
Survey s are also being conducted t o deter mi ne t he demand
for students in service-learni ng pr ograms , attitudes of employers t owar d t hem ,
and attitude s of student interns .
Over t he longer r ange t he work group plans to cons i der ways of invoJ.vj ng
st udents in resear ch and ways of linking r e search on ser vi ce-.lean1ing with
the curricul um .
It was agreed t hat the quality of research should not be compromis ed
s impl y t o give students respons ibility f or it .
Thus , s ome students will need

Dear Dr. Allen:
On behalf of the 225 intern of the Atlanta Urban Corps , I thank you
for addressing the recent Atlanta Service Learning Conference. Your
interest and presence indicated to college students that the national
leadership of higher education is indeed in tune with their concern.
Your statement about college work- tudy funding and the reversal of
off-campus expenditures is, in my opinion, a mild tone to college
involvement in community action. I only hope that colleges will encourage thorough planning by off-campu agencies to develop m aningful
progr-ams for student involvement.
If our project can be of any help to you for material or ideas, please
let me know. 1 am •ending under eparate cover a 1,000 p ge re e rch

Dear Mr. Sweat:
Your participation in the seminar was very much appreciated by the
student interns. The tough realities of how you move people and
ideas for the development of an area is a new concern for most of
these students. I believe that you and Dean Stephens were able to
raise some of the right issues for these students from their
scattered questions.
I want to personally thank you for spending the morning with us and
for adding a significant dimension to the seminar experience.

Dear Andy:
I am leaving Atlanta the first week of September for Harvard Business
School and we n ed a Director . I ' ve been talking to M ike Goldstein
about possible directors and he suggested you. I don ' t know your ogligations at pre ent, but Mike thought you had a con.tract to teach through
June, 1970 .
As you know , Atlanta ' s Urban Corps is progressing very well . We have
cooperative re ources from area colleges, busine s donors, city government and private agencie • I have no doubts about expansion possibilities
only through planning . City government is co-sponsoring an Urban Life
Center with Georgia State College through a sp cial grant from Housing
and Urban Develop m nt . It is a "kind' of" university relation office with
promising opportunity .
Th Mayor ' s a sistant say that if_ a deci Jpn'\ was made to hire a per on
of your caliber that you could po sibly be a professor in the Urban Life
Center as w 11 as direct the Urban C o rps .
If you ar intere ted, could you please
about arranging a vi it?

Formal recruitment c.losed on the campuses Friday, May 2.
Marc Dash predicts that an overall fi gure of 1000 applications
will be in hand to be reviewed for student placement.
A REPORT ON FINANCE
Bill Adams, Private Fund Raising Chairman, has submitted
the followin g report on e fforts being made in this area of
the A. U. C.
In t he initial conception of the Atlanta Urban Corps , the
idea of soliciting the business co mmunity for financial a s s ista n ce was co n sidered to be absolutely necessary in order to make
the A. U. c. a r epre sentative student pro gram. Without finan ci al
as sistanc e f r om the bu si ne ss s ector only students who could
qualify f or colle ge work study money would be able to s e rve as
int e rns in the A, U. C. unles s they volunteered their time .
Business support will enable the Atlanta Urban Corps to i nvolv e
s tu dent s fro m all l evels of i n come in th e program and also will
allo w i nte r ns t o work i n a gencies that cannot afford the cost.
Presentl y we ar e in t h e proc es s o f con tacting the major
busin esses i n the Atl an ta a r ea. We f e el t he A. U. C. pr ovi des
busin e s s t he opportuni t y t o co n tribut e t o a wor t hwhil e urban
proj ect as well as to provi de t hem a n exc ell en t avenu e f or

�Our goal is 300 interns, half in city agencies and half in
non-city agencies such as YMCA, DeKalb County Government,
etc. At present in our administrative department we need
twenty-four interns. If private businesses contribute
l40,000 we will be able to operate at planned capacity.
Our financial effort has been greatly enhanced by the
assistance of Mr. Dave Houser of Arthur J. Anderson and Co.
Mr. Houser has been very beneficial in directing our approach
to the business sector.
BOARD OF TRUSTEES MEETS
The Board of Trustees of the Atlanta Urban Corps met
officially for the first time April 17, 1969 in the Wilby Room
of the Georgia Tech Library. Mr. Bill Ramsay of the Southern
Regional Education Board presided. Rich Speer, Student Director,
spoke to the Board on the A. U. C. overall concept, followGd
by an organization report given by Sam VJiJ.liams, Staff Director.
R0por ts vrnre made by David Whelan, Internship Development
Director and by Sam Williams and Bill Adams who both reported
on the financial aspect of the program. Tara Swartsel, Secretary
of t he Colle ge Relations Board, gave a short report on the work
being done on the campuses by our College Relations Board
representatives, and Marc Dash, Director of the College Relations
Board described the actual program of student recruitment.
Mr. Dennis Webb of Nall, Miller, !Cadenhead, and Dennis reported
on the legal status of th e A. U. c., explaining to the Board
that our charter ha s been approved by the State of Georgia and
is being presented to the Internal Revenue Service for taxexempt status as a non-profit organization.
BUSINESSMEN'S BREAKFAST A SUCCESS
On Tuesday, April 29 at 9:00 a.m. a breakfast was given
in the tea room of Rich's downtown, made possible by
Mr. Harold Brocke of Rich I s and hosted by i'-'i r. Kavanagh of Ric I s
personel department. Forty leading Atlanta businessmen were
invited to become personall y adquainted with the A. U. C.
program. Good attendance and obvious interest proved our belief
I
i

'
�Page 4
that the Atla.nta business community will play a vital role
in the success of our program. Mayor Ivan Allen and Georgia
Tech:s past president Edwin Harrison each made opening comments
on the Urban Corps, and Sam Williams, Rich Speer and Bill Adams
made reports on specific areas of the Urban Corps concept.
The businessmen were invited to commit themselves to the concept
of the A. U. C. and if possible to make a financial commitment
as well. Bill Adams is to make personal appointments to talk
wi t h individual businessmen from the group soono
INTF.RNSHIP DEVELOPMENT UNDERWAY
In ord e r that the students who work with our program this
summer serve in rel evant positions, the A. U, C. is utilizing
students in the field to develop the job slots, or internships,
in which students uill be placed . Twenty-five students are
no w working on this development procedure, including students
fro ~ Agnes Scott College, Georgia Tech, and the Atlanta
University Compl ex; Dianne Wilson and Marlene Rounds are both
~orking out of the A. U. C. office on this same development
program . Contacts are being made at t wenty city departments
and fo r t y extra-city ag enci e s ranging from the local school
bo a r ds to the Ec ono mi c Opportunity Atlao.ta program. To date
so me fift y devel oped internships are in hand with an expected
fi gur e of over three hundred. Wally Bloom, Extra-City Coordinator
and Da vid Whelan, City Coordinator both are quite optimistic
about th e success 0 f this particular aspect of the A. U. C.
