Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

?

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?
Response Not Provided

Budget:
$116,832
Category:
Job Training & Employment
Population Served:
Offenders/Ex-offenders
None
None

Program Description:

SkillSource manages several initiatives that work with hard to serve populations, such as ex-offenders. The SkillSource – Fairfax County Sheriff Employment Center is located within the Fairfax County Alternative Incarceration Branch (AIB), adjacent to the Fairfax County Jail. The employment center, the first of its kind in a local Virginia jail, is utilized by inmates identified by the Fairfax County Sheriff’s Office who are preparing for community reentry and need to gain additional information and skills in order to prepare for employment in Fairfax County. This Center provides employment assistance to County inmates to help them gain and retain employment during their final months of incarceration and eventual release. By attaining employment and self-sufficiency, this reduces the potential of criminal recidivism and strengthens their reentry back into the community. A major strength of the Center has been its potential capacity to reduce the gap in time between release and adequate full-time employment from weeks and months to a few days. Even if offenders do not secure employment prior to release, offenders still are able to make use of the services offered by this Center while incarcerated and they are more motivated and able to utilize the One-Stop Center services once in the community.

Program Long-Term Success:

SkillSource’s overall goal is to help offenders being released into the Northern Virginia community attain long-term, meaningful employment and self-sufficiency, thereby reducing the potential of criminal recidivism.

Program Short-Term Success:

Since its inception in May 2008 to April 2013, 508 offenders have been enrolled at the Center and 412 have been placed into employment (approximately 81%) at an average salary of $9.59/hour or approximately $19,900 annually. Against a national violent offender recidivism rate exceeding 43% and a Virginia violent offender recidivism rate exceeding 28%, the recidivism rate of an offender that has gone through the SkillSource – Sheriff Employment Center is less than 10%.

Program Success Monitored by:

The outcomes of this program are monitored by the SkillSource President and CEO, as well as by the SkillSource Board of Directors.

Program Description:

SkillSource works with ex-offenders through the Virginia Serious and Violent Offender Re-Entry Initiative (VASAVOR). This initiative is designed to support recently released offenders and reduce or eliminate recidivism, as well as address multiple barriers to employment. VASAVOR has maintained a regional community network which fosters the transition of long-term incarcerated adults who have been convicted of violent crimes into the community. The VASAVOR initiative provides selected offenders with requisite skills and supportive services such as substance abuse treatment, mental health services, and case management, training, assistance with food, shelter, utility, counseling, and medical services. To date, most VASAVOR offenders have remained employed with good wages and benefits and have secure housing opportunities.

Program Long-Term Success:

Against a national violent offender recidivism rate of 35%, and a Virginia violent offender recidivism rate of 14%, the VASAVOR recidivism rate has been estimated at approximately 3%. To date, VASAVOR offenders have remained employed with good wages and benefits and had secure housing opportunities.

Program Short-Term Success:

Since program inception in 2003, 434 clients have been enrolled in VASAVOR, 405 have been placed into employment with an average salary of $9.97/hr ($20,738 annually) with many receiving health benefits. Against a national violent offender recidivism rate exceeding 43% and a Virginia violent offender recidivism rate exceeding 28%, the VASAVOR recidivism rate is estimated at less than 5%

Program Success Monitored by:

The outcomes of this program are monitored by the SkillSource President and CEO, as well as by the SkillSource Board of Directors.

Program Success Examples:

Three years ago, VASAVOR served a client with an Information Technology background that had been unsuccessful finding employment due his criminal background. The VASAVOR program assisted him with a job as a laborer at Trainor's Glass construction company and provided him with a training opportunity to upgrade his IT skills (MCSE). He has continued to work with this company for about a year and half and has also managed to move to the IT Department, where he now he makes about $75,000 annually with benefits.   Another client was placed with Shirley's Contracting, Inc as a laborer at $10/hr, while also receiving training to acquire his Commercial Driving License (CDL). The VASAVOR program managed to procure him a job with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority as a bus driver, making about $40,000 annually with benefits.

Program Description:

In partnership with the Virginia Community College System, SkillSource was selected in 2008 as one of four national sites to receive grant funding from the U.S. Department of Labor for its Northern Virginia Growing America Through Entrepreneurship Project (NOVAGATE). This collaborative effort focused on providing entrepreneurial training to dislocated workers age 45 and over to establish new businesses, as well as to start and sustain successful self-employment offering a viable alternative to traditional employment for older dislocated workers and to integrate entrepreneurial services into the workforce system. This program operated from July 1, 2008 through June 30, 2011; 117 participants were approved for intensive services, with 46 new business launched and 23 participants entering traditional employment. After the program officially ended in June 2011, SkillSource was granted a 1-year no-cost extension through June 2012. From July 2011 – June 2012, an additional 107 applicants were approved to participate with 94 attending business training. Of those, from January 2012 - June 2012, 52 new participants were approved and 56 active participants attended business training. (Most program data is cumulative since program inception.)

Program Long-Term Success:

Program Short-Term Success:

Since program inception in July 2008 through June 2012, 188 applicants were approved to participate in NOVAGATE with 88 new business start-ups and 26 participants entering traditional employment.

The outcomes of this program are monitored by the SkillSource President and CEO, as well as by the SkillSource Board of Directors.

Program Success Examples:

In April 2009 a local home decorating business closed its doors, laying off over 100 employees. Included in those let go was an interior designer with over 20 years of experience and an extensive clientele list. With her future unclear and a fear of re-entering the job market, the promising entrepreneur discovered the NOVAGATE initiative. She was able to team her knowledge of the market and interior design skills with those of the small businesses development counselor’s. Through intensive, one-on-one training, specialized assessments, and assistance in creating a strategic business and marketing plan, the NOVAGATE participant has acquired multiple contracts and successfully opened her own small business.

Program Description:

SkillSource has administered several National Emergency Grants (NEGs) including the Department of Defense Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) initiative. In collaboration with the Workforce Investment Board in Arlington/Alexandria, SkillSource worked closely with the Commonwealth of Virginia and the Virginia Community College System on the U.S. Department of Labor On-the-Job (OJT) Training Reemployment project implemented in September 2010. This program was intended to provide for at least 52 OJT contracts for jobseekers over a two-year period. These contracts were intended to prepare long-term (27 weeks or longer) dislocated workers to enter a new industry or trade and reimbursed up to 90% of a worker’s wages for a period not exceeding six months.

Program Long-Term Success:

The Northern Virginia BRAC initiative had two priorities: 1) To support workforce and economic development officials to respond to worker and employer needs resulting from BRAC transitions, and 2) To support the continued transformation of workforce and economic development strategies within the Northern Virginia community, as part of the Greater Washington regional economy.

Program Short-Term Success:

Upon completion of this initiative in September 2012, SkillSource initiated 54 OJT contract commitments, exceeding the original expectation. Of those enrolled, 29 participants were placed into employment upon completion of the OJT contract (54%).

Category:
Youth Job Training & Employment
Population Served:
Youth/Adolescents only (14 - 19 years)
Young Adults (20-25 years) -- currently not in use
None

Program Description:

In 2006, SkillSource developed the employer-driven Educating Youth through Employment (EYE) program, in coordination with Fairfax County’s Department of Family Services, to enable local schools, private businesses and other community partners to support meaningful and relevant summer work experiences for young adults in Northern Virginia. Local employers have an opportunity to hire or sponsor a youth for summer work experience within their industry sector, and young adults utilize this work opportunity as career interest and exploration. Participating young adults are assessed for an interest in exploring specific career opportunities, but who may lack the skills or experience to secure a first-time employment opportunity on their own. The recruitment, prescreening and preparation of participating young adults are conducted by Fairfax County youth employment specialists, under contract to SkillSource, to provide ongoing support to the young adults throughout the summer program. Mandatory workshops focus on soft skills development. Starting in Summer 2010, the EYE program expanded to include low income youth eligible for Workforce Investment Act services, foster care youth, and youth referred through the Northern Virginia Gang Task Force.

Program Long-Term Success:

EYE is a summer youth employment program that helps a diverse population of teens and young adults gain the skills, confidence, and experience necessary to obtain meaningful employment opportunities. A summer employment experience provides supervised time, educational learning, and professional role models that may encourage participants to pursue higher education or enhanced career pathways. Earning income not only assists in them gaining personal and economic independence for themselves and their families, but will also help these youth grow toward becoming responsible adults.

Program Short-Term Success:

The Summer 2012 program served 102 young adults who worked a total of over 14,637 hours and earned nearly $110,492 in wages. Since program inception, over 600 young adults have participated in EYE, earning nearly $610,500 in wages.

Program Success Monitored by:

The outcomes of this program are monitored by the SkillSource President and CEO, as well as by the SkillSource Board of Directors.

Program Description:

Programs funded through the Federal Workforce Investment Act (WIA) provide free employment and training services to assist eligible adults ages 18 years and older, low-income adults, low-skilled older, low-income adults, low-skilled-workers, dislocated workers that were terminated or laid off and low-income youth ages 14-21 who face barriers to employment. The SkillSource Centers had approximately 90,000 jobseeker visits between July 2011 and June 2012. During this same time period, 1,015 individuals were enrolled in all WIA programs with 288 placed into jobs. When other programs are factored in, including programs targeting ex-offenders, long-term unemployed jobseekers, and dislocated workers, 2,238 individuals were enrolled and 958 were placed into employment.

Program Long-Term Success:

A Return-On-Investment Study was commissioned in 2012, which examined the economic impact of SkillSource’s workforce training and employment programs and determined that total regional benefits exceeded public costs by nearly 6:1. SkillSource has committed to making its job training and placement programs a priority – 85% of the organization’s expenses went toward program services in FY 2012 and 44% of its FY 2013 annual budget of over $10 million has been allocated for training expenses.

Program Short-Term Success:

From July 2012 to April 2013, the five (5) SkillSource Centers hosted over 64,000 jobseeker visits. During this time period, 1,067 individuals were enrolled in all WIA programs with 272 placed into employment. When other programs are facted in, including programs targeting ex-offenders, long-term unemployed jobseekers, and dislocated workers, 2,098 were enrolled and 986 were placed into employment.

Program Description:

In October 2010, SkillSource contracted with the Social Security Administration (SSA) to serve as an Employment Network (EN) for the SSA Ticket to Work (TTW) Program. The "Ticket Program" is part of the Ticket to Work and Work Incentives Improvement Act of 1999 and is a Federal-local effort to assist and support adults, ages 18-64 years, receiving Social Security Disability payments to transition into employment and maximize their economic self-sufficiency. These beneficiaries are issued “Tickets” by SSA, who in turn assign those tickets to an EN of their choice to receive the necessary services to maximize their economic self-sufficiency. This program specifically is designed to remove many of the barriers that previously influenced Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) recipients’ decisions about returning to the workforce. SkillSource, as an EN, is eligible to serve residents of Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. According to the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Disability Statistics and Demographics, there are a total of 782,166 Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) beneficiaries in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia, over 500,000 of whom currently are unemployed. TTW allows SkillSource to offer enhanced workforce and job placement services to individuals with disabilities and to integrate these services into the Northern Virginia Workforce System. .

Program Long-Term Success:

Since program inception, SkillSource has received 666 inquiries, with 92 “Ticket” assignments with 38 (54%) job placements at an average wage of $15.41.

The outcomes of this program are monitored by the SkillSource President and CEO, as well as by the SkillSource Board of Directors.

Program Success Examples:

Kevin came to the SkillSource Group, Inc. in November 2010 seeking assistance returning to the workforce. He had worked in the remodeling industry, when a medical condition necessitated two, major neck surgeries. After a month in rehabilitation, he returned home uncertain about his future. The physical demands of Kevin’s remodeling job prevented him from returning. In March 2009, Kevin applied for and was granted Social Security Administration (SSA) disability benefits and was encouraged to pursue the Ticket to Work (TTW) program. He contacted SkillSource and met with the TTW Project Director. She introduced Kevin to both free employment services and workshops at the SkillSource Centers, and a program called Training Futures, which provides candidates clerical training and job placement support while earning college credits. Operated by Northern Virginia Family Service, in partnership with Northern Virginia Community College, Training Futures placed Kevin as a Surgery Billing intern at Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center in Woodbridge. After completing his internship, Sentara offered him a full-time position with benefits. Kevin has been employed at Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center for ten months and has regained his confidence and looks forward to a promising new career.

Program Description:

In June 2012, SkillSource was awarded $8,355,590 through the U.S. Department of Labor's (USDOL) National Workforce Innovation Fund to lead a collaborative effort with two other workforce investment areas in Virginia, the Capital Region Workforce Partnership in Richmond and Opportunity, Inc. in Virginia Beach and Norfolk. The Virginia Employment Through Entrepreneurship Consortium (VETEC) will provide 1,000 adult and dislocated workers (a minimum of at least 20% will be veterans) eligible for Workforce Investment Act (WIA) services with comprehensive entrepreneurial training and technical assistance over the 52 month grant to directly assist with new job creation and small business growth. The VETEC grant will expand current USDOL-funded efforts in Northern Virginia and Richmond, to the Norfolk region and target small business development. This effort seeks to integrate entrepreneurship services within the public workforce system to enable hundreds of job seekers to grow assets and attain long-term self-sufficiency through self-employment. This initiative will allow the USDOL to effectively measure and evaluate the impact the public workforce system has on supporting all WIA-eligible job seekers to consider entrepreneurship and to start their own business. The Consortium effort also will provide a model that can be replicated in other Virginia workforce areas and throughout the United States.

Program Description:

In August 2012, SkillSource was awarded $1,103,940 through the U.S. Department of Labor’s (USDOL) Veterans Workforce Investment Program (VWIP). The Northern Virginia Jobs 4 Veterans (J4VETS) Initiative will deliver employment and training services to approximately 395 eligible veterans over a three-year period, resulting in veterans earning industry-recognized credentials and employment in high demand local businesses. J4VETS will transform the current system of veteran workforce and employment service delivery by establishing a coordinated partnership among veteran-serving organizations that will create a pipeline of skilled veteran job seekers. Of the 395 veterans enrolled, 150 (30%) are expected to have a service-connected disability. The program plans to enroll participating veterans into training, including on-the-job training and entrepreneurship training.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

SkillSource placed nearly 600 fellow Northern Virginians into employment in FY 2012, which generated an estimated $20 million in regional labor income. SkillSource contracted with Richmond, Virginia based Mangum Economic Consulting, to estimate the Return on Investment (ROI) from new adult workers entering the Northern Virginia workforce after participating in workforce training programs at the SkillSource Centers. The Study estimated that total economic benefits to the Northern Virginia regional economy exceeded costs by nearly 6:1.
