Programs in a Box Directory

AAUW’s online Programs in a Box (PIAB) help members consider and choose program activities for their branches. Each Program in a Box outlines an activity that could be chosen for a branch, with the “what, why, and how” to implement that program.

Programs in a Box reflect a wide range of AAUW activities and an effort will be made to prioritize posting of programming ideas that help us keep our Value Promise.
