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?

Program Description:

Education: OASIS staff work with their local communities and with members to develop educational programs. Each center publishes a catalog of course offerings three times a year. Topics include arts and humanities, science, health and health promotion, technology, financial planning, consumer affairs and cultural events. Educational formats range from one-time classes to in-depth series lasting six weeks or more. The Institute develops national program models and provides curricula, materials and support for their implementation. One example is Lewis & Clark: Journey to Another America, developed with funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Health: Mature adults are keenly interested in learning how they can maintain their health and independence. The Institute has developed HealthStages TM as a proactive program designed to reduce health risks for mature adults by helping them understand and address their changing health needs. Fifteen courses cover nutrition, exercise, disease management, sensory changes, mental health, memory and general health promotion. In 2002, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation provided funds to The Institute to pilot a health program, Active Living Every Day, that encourages mature adults to become more active as they age based on the research that ties late-life physical activity to successful aging. In 2003, the U.S. Administration on Aging awarded the Los Angeles Department of Aging a demonstration grant in which OASIS serves as the contractor to provide an intervention model to increase physical activity among mature adults in the Los Angeles area. Technology: OASIS Connections is a program to help mature adults use technology and the Internet to connect with friends, family, information and resources by expanding Internet training, increasing access to the Internet and providing volunteer opportunities using technology. It provides Internet access and training available through new computer labs and educational programs, made possible by a grant from the Technology Opportunities Program (TOP) of the United States Department of Commerce with additional support from SBC Foundation and May Department Stores Company. A newly designed OASIS website, www.oasisnet.org, is used in the classes and provides a way for mature adults to communicate, post messages, shop, research and learn on-line. Volunteerism: OASIS volunteers provide service as mentors to youth at risk, instructors, center assistants, and in community service projects. Currently, 8,000 volunteers have contributed more than 612,200 hours. Through OASIS? Intergenerational Tutoring Program, tutors are trained and work one-on-one each week with 5-9 year-old children in elementary schools to build the child?s reading skills and confidence. OASIS cooperates with 103 school districts and 925 schools in 21 cities. Currently, nearly 6,000 tutors work with 13,000 children annually.

The OASIS CATCH Healthy Habits Program is an intergenerational nutrition/activity program that  partners older adults with children in grades 3-5 to implement CATCH (Coordinated Approach to Child Health), an evidence-based, nationally recognized school nutrition/physical activity curriculum. CATCH (http://www.sph.uth.tmc.edu/catch/(http://www.sph.uth.tmc.edu/catch/) ) is a coordinated school health program which builds an alliance of parents, teachers, child nutrition personnel, school staff, and community partners to teach children and their families how to be healthy for a lifetime. OASIS piloted a modified version of the CATCH After School program by using older adult volunteers to teach 8 interactive lessons.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

OASIS is a pioneer in the field of successful aging, enabling adults age 50 plus to live healthy, productive lifestyles through a three-fold approach: Lifelong Learning- the need to challenge the mind and continue personal growth. Programs in Lifelong Learning include Connections Technology Training as well as a variety of classes in arts & humanities, history and several other areas of interest. Health Promotion- the importance of physical activity, nutrition and managing health risks to sustain an independent, active life. OASIS regularly conducts exercise and health education classes in addition to several evidence-based health programs such as Chronic Disease and Diabetes Self Management, Active Start, Matter of Balance and many others. Volunteer Engagement- the desire to devote one’s time, energy and experience to meet community needs. OASIS volunteer opportunities include serving as class instructors and peer leaders, providing program support and recruiting other volunteers. Volunteers in intergenerational programs participate through OASIS Tutoring and CATCH Healthy Habits. With education, advocacy and intergenerational programs, the impact of OASIS goes far beyond the older adults served. Intergenerational tutors, health volunteers and key partners are enhancing the lives of children and communities in 40 cities and 24 states across the country.
