I from a dozen leading colleges! ;and universities will pool ideas'! | on how to educate volunteers! i for their tasks. | I Institutions represented at the j jmeefeig will, like Antiocfa, be j carrying on Advance Training | Programs (ATP) for the i Corps this summer. Peace! ;Corps officials connected with? lithe training of volunteers also; iwfll participate in the con- j Amcrican Inference. j The Peace Corps started the jjATP as an experiment in 1963. | Volunteers in this program, | which seeks to educate rather ! than simply train, begin prepa- | ration for service a year in vance of departure. ! Part 1 of the preparati o n, ; which is for students who have finished their junior year in | college, is an intensive eight | to 10-week summer session. | Part n includes pertinent study 'during the student's senior-year i at his home college, and a final j training session after 'his grad- i uation. | Antioch is hosting the conference conference at the request of the Peace Corps, J. D. Dawson, Antioch vice president and conference conference coordinator, said.
