?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?

May 2012)

Budget:
$1,234
Category:
Youth Development
Population Served:
Children and Youth (infants - 19 years.)

Program Description:

Nearly 350,000 children in Israel—15% of all young people—are in danger of suffering from physical, emotional, or sexual abuse, neglect, or a violent home environment. JDC-Ashalim has developed and piloted over 300 programs for these children and youth (aged 0-18 years) and their families that address the risks that they face and the possible outcomes: their dropping out of school, becoming socially alienated, or resorting to delinquent behavior. Through one of its main programs, “Better Together,” JDC-Ashalim helps transform the quality of life and opportunity for Israel’s inner-city youth by coordinating and creating services in these impoverished neighborhoods. JDC also develops innovative programs for other vulnerable populations in Israel, including the elderly, people with disabilities, and immigrants.

Program: Youth Village in Rwanda (GuideStar Exchange,

May 2012)

Budget:
$1,235
Category:
Human Services
Population Served:
Youth/Adolescents only (14 - 19 years)
Crime/Abuse Victims

Program Description:

The Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village (ASYV), a special project of JDC, was initiated by South-African native, lawyer, and mother Anne Heyman, after hearing a lecture on the 1994 Rwandan genocide. She learned that one of the great tragedies resulting from the genocide is the approximately 1.2 million children—almost 15 percent of the population—who have been forever robbed of their families, communities, homes, and of hope for a viable future in their country. ASYV is based upon the model of pre-existing youth village, Yemin Orde, located in Northern Israel which was originally established to house orphans of the Holocaust. The first group of 125 young residents of the village began classes at the start of the Rwandan school year in January 2009.
