Dear Forrest:
I am attaching s e veral invoices, bills, etc. which have been
forwarded to this office by the Atlanta Urban Corps for payment.
These bills total $1, 610. 79.
These obligations were incurred by the Urban. Corps prior to its
budget being established within the City budget. As a result, these
invoices did not receiv e prior approval by your office or by the
Department of Finance.
The 1969 Urban Corps budget will be approved by the Finance
Committee on Monday, June 16. Provisions will be made in
that budg e t to meet these expenditures. Funds sufficient to m e et
the attached expenditures are available from privat e contributions
that have been made to the Urban Corps. Even so, we reco gnize
that these obligations have not been incurred in accordance with
the accepted City procedures. We are taking steps to see that
the Urban Corps follows City procedures hereafter.
It would be appreciated, therefore, if you would review these
invoices, approve them for payment, and forward to Mr. Jay
Fountain, Deputy Director of Finance.
Very truly yours,
George J. Berry

MEMORANDUM
Date:
June ll, 1969
Dave Whelan
SUBJECT:
Alvin Dollar
Alvin Dollar reported to Judge Jones of -the City Municipal Court
for an interview as assigned by the Atlanta Urban Corps. Judge
Jones did not approve Alvin at that ti.me for an internship as a
baliff, and he told Alvin that he would call in in the next couple
of days.
Mr. Dollar subsequently cam.:, to the Atlanta Urban Corps office and
spoke with me concerning the position at the Courts. He stated that
he had received a call from Judge Jones and was told that he coyld
work. if he would cut his hair. It was at that ti.me in an 11 afron
hair cut. Mr. Dollar felt he was being denied his rights and had
reported the incident to the Community Relations Cormnission.
To assure Alvin received a job, I then placed him in the Crime
Commission. After telling Alvin this, I called Judge Jones. He
stated that he had no person'i:1,l objection to Alvin's hair, but one
of the 5 judges said that he would not allow Mr. Dollar in his court
unless he got his hair cut. Judge Jones s r id that since he had no
power over the other judges, he could not accept Mr. Dollar because
the job of baliff required that he work in the courts of all five
judges. Judge Jones was very sorry, but he did not see how he .could
accept Mr. Dollar under those circumstances.
Judge Jones did, however, laud Mr. Dollar's qualifications, and expressed an interest in using other Atlanta Urban Corps interns.

Dear John:
Several weeks ago the decision was made that in order to get the
Urban Corps Program established and functioning this summer it
would be necessary to tie the administration of the Urban C c rps
to an existing City ag e ncy. It was my recomme ndation that we
use the Atlanta Childr e n and Y o uth S e rvices C o uncil as th e
administrative v e hicl e for g etting the Atlanta Urban Corps underway.
There was much pr e ssur e from the students and others to plac e
the administration of the Urban Corps dir e ctly in the Mayor's
Office and there has been much fe e ling all alon g that this is where
it must be located if it is to gain th e str e n g th n e cessary to make
it through its initial org a nization s ta ge s.
I
As w e have b e come mor e and mor e involv e d in th e l egal and finan c i a l
m e chani c s of e stabli s hin g th e Urb a n Corps Pr o g r a m, it has become
mor e appar e nt that w e should hav e g o ne ah e ad and ti e d it to th e
Mayor's Offic e until such time as th e non-profit Urban C o rps
organization can sta nd on its o w n.
In vi ew of so m e o f the r e quir e m e nt s for contractin g a n d for g a1n 1ng
progr a m s u p p o rt, it i s th e r e co m1ne n dati on of thi s o ffi ce , th e Cit y
Attorn ey, th e D ir ect o r of Fina n ce that we g o a h ead and ti e· it t o th e
M a yor's Offic e a t this poi n t .

This sum.mer our payroll will total almost $270,000 which necessitates
a special payroll account in the City's Data Processing and Finance
Department. Since this account requires departmental sponsorship,
that means all employees of that department would be tallied on the
same le'dger and bank account which co~d confuse an already complicated system if lumped into a small department such as the Youth
Council. The Accounting Department is creating a special billing
department due to the size and number of checks to be issued. This
can be done under no presently existing department since we will be
billing other City departments and private agencies.
In dealing with other City agencies, it is easier to influence their
opinion and participation if they realize the Mayor is sponsoring the
program. Also, this keeps us from inher itin g inter-departmental
conflicts that virtually any department would have accumulated.
C ontacting colleges at all levels is much easier from a formal
relations point of view if it is done through the chief ~xe cu.ti ve' s
office. This advantage can save us valuabl e time in Atlanta on certain
campuses due to political problems. We will deal with six other
government units in Atlp..nta at the hi ghest level; therefore, our base
in Atlanta City G o vernment should be known and respected.
Another point that keeps coming up from the students and others in
the business and academic community is that 13 out of the 14 Urban
Corps programs op e rating in the country are operating directly out
of the chief executive's office of each city. The fourteenth agency
is operated out of a Model Cities agency.
Since you did not ask for th e program to be placed under th e Y outh
C ouncil to start with and sinc e I hav e felt all along that we might have
taken advantage of you and your staff by shoving this great a dm.inistrativ e
burden upon you, it is our intention to go ahead and do w hat we should
have don e in the fir s t place and plac e th e Urban C o rps under th e
Mayor's Offi ce for th e ti1n e b e in g . If you hav e any stron g f ee lin gs
about this e ith er way , I wo ul d appreciate you l e ttin g us know ri ght
a way.

MEMORANDUM
TO:
FROM:
Mr. Dan Sweat
DATE:
May 14, 1969
Sam Williams, Director
Atlanta Urban Corps
SUBJECT :
"Home 11 for the Urban Corps
Pursuant to our discussions about the city department which would
sponsor the Urban Corps, I offer the following information as
justification for housing the Urban Corps under the Office of the
Mayor.
Since the program itself must cross into virtually every
agency and department, placing its administration at the
vortex of the city 1 s structure simplifies considerably
the establishment of program guidelines and the enforcement of program policy. Also, students and colleges seem
to respond more favorably to a program under the direct
aegis of the Chief Executive.
from the National Urban Corps
Organizational Manual
According to the National Urban Corps Office, 13 out of the 14 Urban
Corps now operating are under the Office of the Chief Executive of
each city.
This summer our payroll will total almost $270,000 which necessitates
a special payroll account in the city 1 s Data Processing and Finance
Department. Since this account r,equires departmental sponsorship,
that means all employees of that department would be tallied on the
same ledger and bank account which could confuse an already complicated
system if lumped into a small department such as the Youth Council. The
accounting department is creating a special billing department due to
the size and number of checks to be issued. This can be done under no
presently ex isting department since we will be billing other city departments and private agencies.
In dealing with other city agencies it is easier to influence their
opinion and participation if they rEa.ize the Mayor is sponsoring the program .
Also , this keeps us from inheriting inter-departmental conflicts that
virtually any department would have accumulated . Contacting colleges at
all levels is much easier from a formal relations point of view if it is
done t hrough the Chief Executive' s office. This advantage can save us valuable
time in Atlanta on certain campuses due to political problems . We will deal
with six other government units in Atlanta at the highest level; therefore ,
our base in Atlanta City government should be known and re spected .

Dear Mr. Sweat:
Enclosed is a copy of the minutes of the first meeting of the Board of
Trustees of the Atlanta Urban Corps :· Inc. Please notify Sam Williams of any
additions or corrections .
Also enclosed is a copy of the By-laws which were unavailable at the
meeting. These were accepted as a beginning set until the next meeting
I feel it necessary to tell you that in my opinion these By-laws. which
I hadn't seen prior to the meeting . are so poorly prepared that the task of
revision is rather a task of starting over. I have advised Dr . Bloom . as
Chairman of the By- laws Counnittee ~ of my feelings. I am also passing on to
him what constructive comments I can. I hope you will do the same ,
The Urban Corps effort .is continuing under the leadership of Sam Williams
and the student s who are giving so much ·of their time to it . A large number
of students will be placed in community service positions this summer as a
result of their work and an integrated educational program is being prepared .
It seems to me that the task of the Board of Trustees is to develop a
structure that can represent the various interests in an Urban Corps . assume
responsibility for operation of an Urban Corps 1• and assure its continuat i on ,
In view of the requir~ments of By- laws development an~ the ~ressin~ demanos of
irmnediate program operations 1 the May meeting of 'the Board of Trustees is
postponed until the By- laws Committee is ready to report and the Staff
Director if-J prepared to present a review of program operation.

MEMORANDUM
TO
Persons Interested in Education and Community Relations
DATE:
April 30, 1969
The relationships between education and community service have been the
topic of much talk, interest and activity in Atlanta for the past several
months. A meeting at Emory University on February 28, bringing together
some of the people representing agencies and institutions concerned with
stu~ent involvement in community development , expressed the need for a
continuing structure to allow coordination and cooperation among those
concerned. This need has been explored by a group of those attending the
Emory meeting and others and the result is this invitation to a larger
meeting to review and act on a proposal for a nine-month confer ence on
service - learning. Enclosed a r e a prospectus of the proposed confe r ence
and a meeting agenda.
The meeting to r eview the proposal and , if acceptable, to initiate the
conference is scheduled for April 30, 1969 at Dean Sage Auditorium,
Atlanta University, Atlanta Georgia. It will begin with registration
at 9:00 A.M. The meeting will commence at 9:30 A.M. and adjour n at 4 :00
P. M. Please r ead the pros pectus and prepare your comments i n advance.
We look forward to seeing you at Atlanta University and to a productive
session leading to a very exciting year in Atlanta.

THE ATLANTA SERVICE LEARNING EXPERIMENT
A Proposal For A Conference
prepared by
Joe D. Kimmins
Office of Public Affairs/South Region

Portions of this paper were developed
from materials prepared by William R.
Ramsay of the Southern Regional Education
Board , by Dr. Edward Holmes of Emory
University, by Sam Williams of the Atlanta
Urban Corps, and others.
Atlanta , Georgia
April 23 , 1969
�What we have to learn to do, we learn by doing.
ARISTOTLE
�THE ATLANTA SERVICE LEARNING EXPERIMENT
A Proposal For A Conference
The Atlanta area today is alive with the activities of many agencies ,
institutions, and individuals concerned with the full development of the
area's human and economic resources.
These activities cut across tradi-
tional academic and bureaucratic categories and across traditional social
and political organizations and are marked by new alliances including
black and white, young and old, powerful and powerless.
One of the new
allian€es with great potential is the combining of community experience
with education.
"Service-learning" implies an involvement of students ,
faculty and practitioner in an arrangement which results in both service
to the community and learning by all participants.
Recognizing that such an arrangement requires this c ooperative action ,
and raises difficult questions that pertain t o both education and community
devel opment, i t is felt by many that some agent should exist t o serve as
a link between the various people and organizations concerned, and as a
reposit ory of new experiences.
But such an agent does not now exist, which
merely reflects the fac t that the activities mentioned cut across traditional
organizations of men and thought.
Therefore, it is proposed to convene a Conference of interested
individuals who represent the agencies, institutions, and other organizations that are affected by or involved in the development of both
community and human resources.
�The Confer ence will focus on the concept of service-learning for
five basic reasons , simply stated:
1.
Programs of all kinds are proliferating in response
to pressing societal and human needs;
2.
Existing development agencies need additional manpower;
3.
Students have expressed a desire for more "relevant"
educati onal experiences , and are a large pool of
well-trained, of t-unused manpower;
4. Educational institutions are reaching out into the
community for ways to become more vitally involved
in its affairs; and
5.
The human and institutional resources exist side-by-side
in Atlanta with progressive attitudes which , properly
coordinated , can achieve a broad pr ogr am of student
intern involvement in service-learning opportunities
existing in this metropolitan area.
The Conference shall be convened for a nine-month period ,
extending from April t hrough December, 1969 .
I ts purpose shall be:
to c ombine the resour ces of institutions and agencies concerned
wit h t he rel at ionships bet ween service experi.e nce and higher
educat ion in an exploration and development of a conceptual
f ramework and pract ical model f or service l ea rning programs
for universities and communities.
The Conference will provide a s tructure for reflection and exchange
among participant s in various community and educat ional programs over
the nine-months period.
Careful study combined with actual i nvolvement
in programs will result in a comprehensive picture and plan for servicelearning in community and on campus.
�Participation in the Conference will be extended to any agency or
organization whose activities have a bearing on the component concerns
of service-learning, or which has a vested interest in the successful
outcome of an experimental program in service-learning.
In the Atlanta area, where the Conference will have its focus, it
is envisioned that the following groups or institutions will be wellrepresented in the body of Conference participants:
Students
There are more than 30 ,000 college or university students
in Atlanta area institutions
Educational Institutions
Agnes Scott College, Clark College, Emory University,
Georgia Institute of Technology, Georgia State College,
Morehouse University, Morri s Brown College, Spelman
College, Oglethorpe College, and the University of Georgia
Governments
The City of Atlanta, Fulton and DeKalb Counties , the
State of Georgia, and the Federal Government as represented by regional headquarters of HEW, HUD, CSC , OEO
Peace Corps , VISTA , and others ·
Other Institutions and Organizations
The Atlanta Urban Corps , the Georgia Mmicipal Association,
the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools , the Southern
Education Foundation , the Ford Foundation , the Southern
Consortium on International Education , the YWCA, the Concerned
Citizens of Atlanta , and many others from the public and private
sector
Operation and Function of the Conference on Service-I.earning
Any experiment , and especially one dealing with an indistinct ,
newly-conceived project such as the Atlanta Service-I.earning Experiment,
comprises many component concerns.
The concept of service- learning
�involves many functions which are not easily compartmentalized.
However ,
the following are seen as fairly distinct components of the service-learning
idea:
1.
the service dimension of service-learning
2.
the learning dimension of service-learning
3.
curriculum design
4. inter-institutional relationships
5.
institutional and agency structure , or re-structure , for
service-learning
6.
financial resources and needs
7.
research , of university, community , and agency resources
8.
models and programs, existing and foreseen

a guiding philosophy for service-learning programs
For the working study of these concerns , it is proposed that the
Confe r ence create wor k groups , each undertaking to ex plore in depth and
produce a report on their assigned area.
The collected reports f r om
the work groups would be presented in December
1969 at the summary meeting
of the Confe r ence .
To a ssist t he work groups and the confe r ee s in thei r study, t wo
methods would be employed in additi on to work group meetings .
I.
~
Practical Laborat ory:
t he At l ant a Urban Corps
An on-going practi ca l implementation of t he se rvi ce-learni ng
concept on as wide a basis as possible in t he Atlanta area
during the summe r of 1969 i s al ready begun, unde r the spons orshi p
of several groups (joining to form an Atlanta Urban Corps).
This
operation shall serve as a practical laboratory , whereby the
�Conference, through observation and conclusions, shall work towards
a continuing service-learning program for the Atlanta area.
Furthermore, the Conference will serve as the repository of information gained through experience with Atlanta area service-learning
experiments.
Similarly, the Conference , because of the collective expertise of
its participants , will be a major resource to service-learning groups
throughout the summer of 1969.
The participants pledge to commit as
much of their creativity, time, and resources as possible to the
successful completion of a summer of experimentation in servicelearning.
II.
M:>nthly Conventions of the Conference
Monthly sessions of the entire Conference will be convened , at each
of which one or more of the component concerns will be the topic of
study.
Each work group will have an opportunity to "chair" a session
of the Conference , and guide the discussion as it sees fit to focus
the attention of the entire Conference on its particular component
of service-learning .
Each work group will organi ze its assigned
session , calling in whatever additional r esource people needed to
explo r e the topic of concern.
~~
Groups
The Conference will f unction pri marily th r ough i t s work groups.
membership will be drawn from the body of Confe r enc e participants.
Their
Work
groups will marshall the available re sources , implement the ideas and concepts , guide the progress of the Experiment , coordinate its operations ,
�study its component concerns , and make recorrnnendations based upon their
experiences towards the creation of a comprehensive model and a continuing
operation in Atlanta.
Individuals , appointed from the Conference participants , will be designated Chairmen of the work groups.
The Chairmen will see his work group's
assignment is successfully studied and reported to the Conference.
Chair-
men will have as co-workers other participants in the Conference who agree
to serve on his work group.
It is proposed that the following work groups be formed:
1.
A Service Work Group
2.
A Learning Work Group
3.
A Curriculum and Inter-Institutional Work Group
4. A Research Work Group
5.
A Financial Work Group
6.
A Models and Programs Work Group
7.
A Guidance Work Group (a steering committee)
The membe r ship of the Guidance Work Group shall consist of the Chai rmen of the othe r six work groups , and the Director of the Confe r ence.
The
membe r ship of the other work groups will be r esolved at the Apr il 30, 1969,
Confe r ence Convention.
Although t he Chai rman of a par ti cular work gr oup wi ll i nevi t abl y
repres ent one of the part i cipating agenci es or instituti ons of the Confe rence,
this does not imply domination of that work group's study by the vi ewpoint
or vested interests of the Chairman's agency or institution.
It is assumed
that the membership of any particular work group will consist of individuals
from several participating agencies or groups, as their interests and manpower resources allow.
�A Timetable
It is ervisioned that the Conference be convened on a monthly basis,
beginning in April 1969.
Following is a suggested timetable for Conference
consideration of the components of service-learning:
April 1969: first Conference Convention; orientation,
general discussion of the Conference proposal and the
agenda; and assignment of work group chairs and membership
May 1969: a general meeting on Service-learning and the
Atla~Experiment; a national meeting of concerned people
with the Atlanta participants , to generate national and
community interest and to publicly initiate the Conference
June 1969:
a discussion of service and learning
July 1969:
a discussion of financial needs and resources
·August 1969: a discussion of curricula, and inter-institutional relationships
September 1969:
October 1969:
a discussion of research considerations
a discussion of models and programs
November 1969: a discussion of the philosophy of servicelearning, and preparation for final reports
December 1969:
a summary meeting
�Conclusion
Although admittedly imperfect, as is the nature of foresightful
programs, it is believed that the structure outlined in this paper will
at least get the Atlanta Service-Learning Experiment under way in a
reasonably workable fashion.
It is intended that the reader view all
the above as designed for flexibility.
Needs will undoubtedly be met
on an ad hoc basis as we learn of them.
But this is a start.
We commit ourselves as individual and group
participants in a large-scale , serious approach to meeting important and
immediate needs of society.
We, like the students who undertake service-
learning, must learn by doing.

The February 1969 Emory Conference on Service-I.earning
The Atlanta Urban Corps
Developments in Curriculum Design at Emory University

'-.
/
�The Emory Conference
On February 28, 1969, more than two dozen men and one woman, representing
educational institutions, government, and other agencies, met together for
one afternoon at Emory University.
Under the leadership of William Ramsay
of the Southern Regional Education Board, they initiated a discussion of
several aspects of service performed by individuals in the public interest ,
and of the educational dimensions of that service.
Models for the service
concept were as varied as the SREB intern and the volunteer in Peace Corps
or VISTA.
Participants in the Emory Conference agreed that such service both
contributes to the community , welfare and the students' education , and
that it should be encouraged on a large and institutional scale.
Indeed , many participants felt that it is not only in the gene r al
interest to encourage such commitment , but i mperative to do so.
They agr eed further that programs could and should be created by colleges
and universiti e s to encourage the student population to commit itself in
greater pe r centage s to national or international se r vice with st rong educational support.
It was suggested that the agencies and insti tuti ons
r epresented a the Emory Conf erence had the necessary powe r and r esource s
to create such pr ogr ams in At l anta.
As the day's di s cussion pr ogres sed , it became cl ear that the concerns
of the participants we re far broader than service - l earni ng alone .
According
to their individual viewpoint, diffe rent participants felt that the concept
of service-learning carried the seeds of solution to many modern problems.
�stated, some of them are:
student demands for more "relevant" educational
experiences during the college years (a concern
for the active student)
society's needs for large numbers of concerned
people who are willing to give of themselves to
solve great problems ••• and the lack of such numbers (a concern for the passive student)
polarization of the attitudes of racial, ethnic,
economic, and national groups, demanding increased
inter-cultural, or cross-cultural, experiences
both within and between nations (the issue of
peace)
the insensitivity of established institutions
to pressing needs for change; and the slow pace
of institutional change versus the accelerating
rate of social change and needs (the "Establishment")
disagreement, especially by the young, with current
social ordering of priorities in America (the crisis
of values)
It is noteworthy , too, that many modern spokesmen have eloquently
addressed themselves to the same concerns.
Four significant recent
statements follow:
Governor Daniel Evans, in his Keynote Address to the 1968 Republican
Convention:
The voice of youth has served notice that
satisfaction can't be measured alone in
dollars; that there is a need for service and
contribution beyond the attainment of material
success. If these goals require an investment
in patience, then let us invest ; if they require
money , then let us spend.
�Eberly, Executive Director of
••• organizations should offer young people
opportunities to perform needed tasks contributing to the welfare of others; to communicate across racial , social, and economic
barriers; to develop a sense of self-worth
and civic pride; to get involved; and to learn
while serving.
President Richard Nixon , in a radio address on October 17, 1968,
during his campaign for the presidency:
••• school administrators (must) wake up to
the healthy new needs of student participation
and incorporate that activity into the learning
process.
Mark R. Killingsworth, a Rhodes scholar in economics at Oxford , in
the NEW YORK TIMES of February 15 , 1969:
••• the National Commission on Technology , Automation
and Economic Progress has estimated that the country
needs some 5.3 million extra workers to bring public
services -- medical care , education, welfare and home
care , public protection , urban renewal and sanitation
-- up to ' acceptable' levels.
The energy and moral commitment of a gene r ation which
ha s alre ady won civil r ights victor i es , gotten l ongoverdue educ ational reforms and blown a closed political
pr ocess wide open is still available. When will we
decide we want it ?
The Emory Conference participants, and othe rs who will join the
At l anta Experiment as i t evolves , t ake heart in the nat ionwide movement
of thought that supports our sense of dedicati on and commitment.
This sense of dedication and commitment to action was the overriding
result of the Emory Conference.
The participants called upon Bill Ramsay
of SREB to work with an ad hoc committee toward the creation of some
�framework that would marshall the resources in Atlanta to the
They also felt that the City of Atlanta should be the focus and limit
of experimentation at this time , with the idea that what is attempted here
will be done in an atmosphere of open experimentation , searching for ideas
of value for other cities, states, or regions.
We should seek to learn
not only what can be done here, but what can be done anywhere.
Practicality
demands an initial attempt of experimentally manageable scope.
Also, it
was felt that necessary resources exist in Atlanta, obviating the necessity
to search far and wide for distant resources and support.

The Atlanta Urban Corps
,.,

\
.,
(From THE ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, Saturday, November 30, 1968:)
"Atlanta city government hopes to have an Urban Corps of up to
college interns working for and with it by the spring semester.
"Dan Sweat, governmental liaison director at City Hall , said Friday
that the city is seeking to employ 100 under the federal College Work
Study Program, and already is negotiating with college officials.
"Sam Williams , president of the Georgia Tech student body last
brought the attention of Sweat and Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr., to the
of the New York intern program last spring."
In the five-month interim since the publication of this article , an
Atlanta Urban Corps has come into being .
It is under the directorship of
Mr. Williams , through a cooperative arrangement between the Atlanta Children
and Youth Services Council of the City and the Souther n Regional Educat i on
Board.
Currently, the Urban Corps , with a strong student partici pation element ,
i s engaged in t he following operations:
1.
Recruitment of st udent i nterns f or summer, 1969, f rom Atl anta campuses through a s tudent member Col lege Rel ations Board.
2.
D=velopment of int ernship positions to meet agency manpower needs in
the Atlanta a rea.
Interviews a r e being conducted by students wit h
department and agency heads t o es t abli sh valid intern posit i ons t o
be f i lled this summer.
It is expected that up to thr ee hundr ed
pos i t i ons will be avai l able f or placement.
3.
A search is underway to locat e individuals to fill approximately
thirty-three permanent and temporary staff positions needed to
manage and operate the Urban Corps.

The Urban Corps offers to students a chance to be in the mainstream of
Atlanta's problems and potentials. "
Descriptive and publicity materials, and the charter of the Urban Corps
will be available at the April 30, 1969, convention of the Conference for
examination by the participants.
�Developments in Curriculum Design~ Emory University
Dr. Edward Holmes, Assistant Dean of the General College, Emory
University; and Phillip Rlopp , Director of Institutional Relations, Peace
Corps, on April 9, 1969, met with department chairmen and faculty members
in social sciences and romance languages to survey existing resources at
Emory for developing service-learning programs.
Beyond the single concern
of university resources, they explored the possibility of creating a ·program
of subjects in domestic and international affairs that would encourage and
prepare the student for service in Peace Corps , VISTA, or Teacher Corps,
or in other related voluntary service.
Conversations on that day between Holmes, Rlopp, and Bill Ramsay of
SREB led to a decision to pursue the question of Atlanta area resources
relevant to such a program, and to a proposal for a resource survey.
Accordingly, on April 15 , 1969, Holmes met with Robert C. Nelson ,
Director of the Southern Regional Office of Public Affairs , Peace Corps ,
to discuss in detail what such a survey would involve in terms of personnel
for a contract between Peace Corps and the Southern Consortium for Internationa l Education , for Peace Corps to pr ovi de funds for such a survey.
The fol lowing members of the Cons orti um read and agreed unanimously
to the proposed contract:
Dean Charles I.ester , Emory University ; Dr . George
Part hemos of t he Uni ve rsity of Georgi a ; Dr . Robe r t St emke , Georgi a Institut e
of Technology; Dean Richard Barksdale, Atlant a Universi ty ; and Dr. Ernest
Ogrum, Georgia State College.
On
Apr i l 18, 1969, Dr.
c.
C. Mlrray, Act ing
Di r ector of the Consortium, signed t he proposal and sent it to Peace Corps
in Washingt on, D.
c.
Dr. Sanford Atwood, President of Emory Univer s i ty, has agr eed to
provide office s pace for the survey i n the Cente r for Social Research.
�Atlanta area educators are presently being contacted for references for a
qualified individual to undertake the survey ; Peace Corps approval of the
contract is expected soon.
Dr. Holmes expresses his hope for the survey in these terms:
"If this proposal is successful, a constellation
of interests and resources will converge to make an
outstanding improvement in the Consortium schools
through the internship program with national and local
agencies.
By pooling all these resources, we can have a
major impact on the awareness of problems and the pursuit
of the solution to these problems, and on the discovery
and application of manpower resources.
"The human problems of our time must be treated in a
serious way with all available resources in order to
point toward a future devoid of destructive elements
standing in the way of human development."

Dear
r . Birnie:
We would like to bring to your attention what we consider
to be one of the most worthwhile student-oriented projects we
have seen in some time . It is called the Atlanta Urban Corps ,
and its goal is to use the great constructive energy and innovative spirit of college students in helping to solve the problems of our city. The students plan to do this by working within the frameworks of established metropolitan area governments .
They will develop Urban Internships within these governments
des igned to be challenging and sti ulating to the student.
We recommend this project to you as being most worthwhile,
both from the point of view of the governments involved and
from the value of the education 1 experiences that each student
in the Atlanta Urban Corps will have. We urge you to attend a
breakfast on Tuesday, Apri l 29, at 9:00 a . rn ., at Rich ' s Tea
Room on the Sixth Floor. The store may be entered through the
Store for Homes or the Street Floor entrance. This breakfast
will not last more than one hour, and that hour will be well
spent .
Sincerely yours,
Edwin D. Harrison
Ivan Allen, Jr.

Federal agencies have agreed to participate as much as possible. One
hundred of their summer interns will attend Urban Corps orientation
meetings and our development teams will visit federal agencies to help
them in choosing certain intern slots. Federal interns will be chosen and
placed by federal agencies by merit of their civil service examination
scores. Cooperation this year is hopefully aimed at some placement
system of Urban Corps interns in future years.
Joe Kimmins has been loaned part-time r.rom the ?eace Corps Regional

Atlanta Urban Fellowship Program
Recently, New York City received a grant for $189,000 from the Sloan
Foundation to institute an Urban Fellowship Program to select twenty
highly talented young men and women from universities throughout the
country to serve full-time internships for a twelve month period.
All of these young people are Master 's Degree candidates in their
r espective fields. New York Fellows are assigned to agency heads and
Mayoral assistants and given commensurate responsibilities . This
program is a di rect parallel to the White House Fellows started by
John Gardner under President Kennedy , Atlanta deserves such a program.
In my opinion, these interns should be handled separately from the
Atlant a Urban Corps since they will be year-round and will r equire
special counseling and guidance only available f rom a source such as
your of f'i ce .
I would be glad to submit a detailed proposal for an Atlanta Urban
Fellows Program and also pursue Foundation funding if you are interested.

�ATLANTA URBAN CORPS
The Atlanta Urban C o rps is a college student intern program
jointly sponsored by Atlanta 1 s colleges and students, the City Government
of Atlanta, private agencies, Atlanta businesses, and the Federal Govern-
mento
The bulk of intern salaries will be furnished 80% by the Office of
Education through college financial aid offices and 20% by the City of
Atlantao
The program will be administered by a professional and
student staff directed by a Board representing participating agencies and
students.
The intern I s job experience should not only be beneficial to the
City but it must be an e ducationally relevant experience for the student.
This is not a "make-work 11 program.
His service -l earning e x p e rience
should give him an overall view of the role this department plays in
solving Atlanta I s problems.
It should be i ntellectually challengi ng.
D e partme ntal inte rn r e que sts should b e specific not only on exp ect e d
education but on detail ed job d e scriptions so ade quate tal e nt may be
r e cruite d.
A by - product of this program will be to attract into urban gove rnment the youn g car ee r tal e nt it so ur gently nee ds and fo c u s the capabilities
of the academi c community on problems of our c ity.

Urban Corps Status
Tuesday, April 1, Sam Williams assumed position of Urban Corps staff
director, salaried by Southern Regional Education Board and "loaned" to
the Atlanta Youth Council.
Most of the first week was spent in taking inventory of various phases
of the Urban Corps. The most immediate problem is finance. A small
administrative fund was donated by SREB and Dan Sweat, Assistant to
the Mayor. Present inventory of work study funds available this summer
for Urban Corps is 138 student positions at 80% cost. All of these are
not firm commitments. VISTA wili" finance 25 interns at full cost.
Mr. ·Bill Ramsay and Charles Sweet are visiting financial aid offic3s of
Atlanta colleges in an effort to "squeeze" more off-ca!llpus work study
funds free. Fund raising from private sources is under way with no
results as y~t. A businessmen's luncheon is scheduled for April 29 in
an effort to get fund commitments. A fund raising group has been
established under the leadership of Bill Adams of Georgia Tech.
Definition of job openings is under way. It appears that the city can
accept at least 100 students. Definite job slots will be defined" the week
of April 11 in city departments. City financing and administration will
be explained in a meeting of department heads April 8. A city irtern
developing team will visit each department during the week.
Internship development of non-federal non-city agencies will begin
April 8·. Initial contacts and requests for 158 interns from these agencies
has been handled by Terry Allen. Student teams will more clearly define
each intern request during the next two weeks and hopefully make new
c ontacts in other agencies.

Federal agencies have agreed to participate as much as possible. One
hundred of their summer interns will attend Urban Corps orientation
meetings and our development teams will visit federal agencies to help
them in choosing certain intern slots. Federal interns will be chosen and
placed by federal agencies by merit of their civil service examination
scores. Cooperation this year is hopefully aimed at some placement .
system of Urban Corps interns in future years.
Joe Kimmir.s has been loaned part-time from the Peace Corps Regional
Office and will be assisting on intern development. Diane Wilson, a
Spelman graduate, has been hired fulltime to assist in internship development. Russ Caldwell will work part-time in program development and


is on loan from the Georgia Municipal League. Fulltime secretaries are


badly needed.
Urban Corps offices· will open the week of April 11. The address will be
I

30 Courtland Street, Atlanta, Georgia 30303. The telephone number is
525-2662. We hope to have someone manning the phones by Monday,
I
April 14. Calls are presently being handled through the Youth Council
at ~22-4463, Ext. 437.

Student recruitment will begin thro_ugh financial aid offices in each college
the week of April 18. Mayor Allen will make a formal announcement of
the city's participation April 9 in a press release. Brochures describing
the Urban Corps and student application forms will be printed the week of
April 11.
The Board of Trustees will meet April 18 to elect 8 people to the E x ecutive
Board and to pass resolutions and approve minutes so the IRS will grant us
a tax e x empt status for donations.
Exact estimates on number of interns is impossible at this time . No
work beginning date has been set. The most important fact is that the
Urban Corps is alive and struggling to get on its feet.
