Scope and Contents

Reports and documents concerning the YWCA of the U.S.A. National Board Program Planning Study. Program planning studies are used by the Program Planning Committee and the National Board to gather information to assess the current program and inform decisions about the future programming needs. Input and reports from the National Student Council and leaders concerned with room registries respond to the current national program, assess how the program is or isn't meeting their needs and make recommendations for future emphases. The results of the program planning studies are compiled and assessed in reports to the National Board. Other documents include correspondence concerning the purpose and aims of the study, articles and reports concerning the program planning studies, meeting notes and planning materials.
