?

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?
Yes
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?
Yes
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?
Yes
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?
Yes
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?
Yes

Program: SkillSource – Fairfax County Sheriff Employment Center (GuideStar Nonprofit Profile
GuideStar encourages organizations to regularly update information on their GuideStar Nonprofit Profiles. This provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more.
March 2015)

Budget:
$230,823
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, provides employment assistance to County inmates assisting them to 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 successful 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 six (6) SkillSource One-Stop Centers throughout Northern Virginia once they have returned to their communities.

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 program inception in May 2008 to December 2014, 624 offenders have been enrolled; 516 have been placed into employment (83%) at an average hourly wage of $10.26. 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 approximately 8%.

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.

Population Served:
Offenders/Ex-offenders
None
None

Program Description:

SkillSource works with offenders through the Virginia Serious and Violent Offender Re-Entry Initiative (VASAVOR) which is designed to support recently released ex-offenders, reduce or eliminate recidivism, and address multiple barriers to employment maintaining a regional community network which fosters the successful transition of long-term incarcerated adults who have been convicted of violent crimes back into the community. Of the 478 ex-offenders enrolled in VASAVOR since program inception in 2003 through December 2014, 466 have been placed into employment (97%) at an average hourly wage of $10.10. 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 approximately 4% since program inception.

Program Long-Term Success:

Against a national violent offender recidivism rate of 43%, and a Virginia violent offender recidivism rate of approximately 28%, the VASAVOR recidivism rate has been estimated at approximately 4%. 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 through December 2014, 478 clients have been enrolled in VASAVOR, 466 have been placed into employment with an average salary of $10.10/hr (just over $21,000 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 approximately 4%

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 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: Northern Virginia Educating Youth through Employment (EYE) Program (GuideStar Nonprofit Profile

Budget:
$369,486
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. The Summer 2014 program served 144 young adults who worked a total of over 24,572 hours and earned approximately $187,000 in wages. Since program inception, close to 900 young adults have participated in EYE, earning nearly $981,000 in wages.

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 2014 program served 144 young adults who worked a total of over 24,572 hours and earned approximately $187,000 in wages. Since program inception, close to 900 young adults have participated in EYE, earning nearly $981,000 in wages.

TTW is designed to remove many of the barriers that influence Social Security Disability Insurance recipients’ decisions about returning to the workforce. SkillSource, as an EN, is eligible to serve residents of Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia allowing SSG to offer enhanced workforce and job placement services to individuals with disabilities and to integrate these services into the Northern Virginia Workforce System. Since program inception through December 2014, SSG has received 1027 inquiries, with 94 current Ticket assignments with 76 job placements at an average wage of $14.19/hr (approximately $30,000 annually).

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 February 2013, SkillSource partnered with the Northern Virginia Community College on the Rapid Response Assistance Program for Veteran’s Employment which focused on connecting Northern Virginia veterans with high-demand jobs and careers. Skillsource placed dislocated workers who are veterans in training programs resulting in industry-recognized credentials and placement into occupations within targeted high-growth and high-wage industry sectors such as healthcare, advanced manufacturing and information technology. These career pathways included additional tools to reward veterans with college credits for prior learning and for skills obtained in the armed forces. At program conclusion in June 2014, 119 veterans were enrolled in training with 66 job placements at an average hourly wage of $40/hour ($83,200 annually).

Program Description:

In July 2013, United Way of the National Capital Area launched a veteran’s employment initiative in the D.C. metropolitan area with a targeted focus on Education, Workforce Readiness and Employment/Internships, providing funding to SkillSource to provide job search and placement assistance to Northern Virginia veterans. This program focused on increasing the number of veterans placed into employment in growing high-wage businesses throughout the Northern Virginia region. At the conclusion of the program in August 2014, 134 veterans had been enrolled with over 60 job placements, at an average hourly wage of $36.05 ($74,984 annually), exceeding SkillSource's proposed placement goals by 20% and projected hourly wage by almost double.
