?

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: Leadership Opportunities for Teens (LOFT) (GuideStar Exchange,
The GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more.
April 2014)

Budget:
$150,000
Category:
None
Population Served:
Youth/Adolescents only (14 - 19 years)
Deaf and Hearing Impaired
Disabled, General or Disability Unspecified

Program Description:

LOFT is a national four-day leadership program which provides an active learning and bonding experience for teenagers who are deaf and hard of hearing and use listening and spoken language. The program is designed for participants to develop skills in individual leadership, teamwork, communication, public speaking, and self-advocacy. Teens who are deaf and hard of hearing often underestimate or do not recognize their ability to lead others, even when they have the capacity and characteristics to do so. The LOFT program identifies and cultivates those skills among participants by providing a supportive and structured environment in which participants increase their confidence and understanding of their own strengths and abilities through activities designed to challenge them to work outside of their comfort zone. LOFT participants are high school students who are deaf and hard of hearing and use listening and spoken language as their primary mode of communication. Historically, 95 percent of the participants come from across the United States, with 5 percent per session from other countries, such as Canada, India, Japan, Taiwan, and the United Arab Emirates. LOFT connects teens living with hearing loss to each other when they may not know anyone with a similar disability – many of the LOFT participants are the only teen in their school who has a hearing loss and for those who are not, they are often the only one who has a cochlear implant and/or uses listening and spoken language.

Program Long-Term Success:

From 1996 through 2008, LOFT was held every other year in conjunction with AG Bell’s biennial convention. To serve the increasing demand for LOFT, AG Bell began offering the program on an annual basis in 2009. The need for this type of program continued to increase and, in 2012, AG Bell doubled the program, offering two LOFT sessions. Since 1996, the LOFT program has served over 300 teens with nearly half of those attending in the last six years. Common themes we have heard from both participants and parents about the LOFT experience include: LOFT is empowering; LOFT helps break down barriers; LOFT builds trust and openness; LOFT is life-changing. LOFT continues to have an impact on participants for years after they have participated as they move onto higher education and enter the workforce. Over the years, many past LOFT participants have told us that LOFT helped them solidify their career plans and personal goals.

Program Short-Term Success:

The 2014 LOFT program will be held in July in Orlando, Florida, with two sessions of 20 teens per session. During a typical LOFT session, teens engage in activities that foster individual growth by developing their personal skills and responsibility for their own actions; social and relationship-building skills; and group-based and participation skills. Throughout activities and discussions, the teens are actively encouraged to share ideas, build trust, respect each other, understand cultural differences, and celebrate their own abilities. Various team activities help the teens learn and practice skills such as working together, thinking outside the box, challenging themselves, and using ideas from the group to solve problems and overcome barriers to meet a challenge. LOFT emphasizes analytical and problem-solving skills by developing activities that emphasize listening, communicating in various ways and thinking outside the box. Other exercises teach group consensus and the art of persuasion, as well as how to work together to make the entire team stronger and more cohesive. Many LOFT participants arrive at LOFT believing that their hearing loss limits their ability to lead. After participating in LOFT activities with similar peers, they gain self-confidence, achieve higher self-esteem and realize that they are capable of being a leader.

Program Success Monitored by:

AG Bell evaluates the LOFT program by employing a combination of methods to assess the quality and impact of the program. Quantitative and qualitative surveys (both electronic and in print) are used to evaluate immediate results and impressions of the program from both the participant and parent perspective. In 2013, an outcomes measures survey was added, using a pre-test and post-test design to measure the extent to which the program results in positive outcomes for participants. Additionally, AG Bell staff and the LOFT counselors (deaf and hard of hearing adult volunteers) meet after LOFT to discuss their observations and impressions of various aspects of the program, including planning, promotion, the program application, the application review and selection processes, onsite logistics and activities, and bonding and interaction of the kids. Upon completion of the LOFT program, participants will demonstrate one or more of the following outcomes: a heightened sense of self-acceptance, self-worth and self-confidence; a deepened sense of self and what is possible when challenged; a greater understanding of leadership and communication styles; an experiential understanding of team dynamics, individual skill sets and collaboration for a common purpose; an increased comfort level advocating for self in social, travel and educational settings; increased confidence with public speaking; a new sense of belonging and an understanding of “where I fit” in the world; a support system of peers who have a shared understanding of living with hearing loss; and long-lasting friendships with others who share a common bond. Qualitative information helps to identify the factors or reasons affecting behavior or outcomes. Examination of the qualitative data, including individuals’ stories about their LOFT experience, often results in improved programming and demonstrates the real-life impact of the LOFT program.

Program Success Examples:

Many LOFT participants are now in mainstream society in medical, legal, social services, education, and corporate management positions.  Several LOFT graduates have returned to be the volunteer supervisors of the program.  Almost all participants go back to their own communities throughout the United States to serve as a role model and a recruiter of other teens who are deaf and hard of hearing who use listening and spoken language as their choice of communicationto participate in LOFT.

The Knowledge Center provides free resources about communication options, spoken language development, financial aid assistance, insurance reimbursement issues, self-advocacy, private and public school programs, and connects families with each other and professionals. There is a critical need for increased early intervention support and reliable resources for monolingual Spanish speaking parents of children with hearing loss who have few resources for promoting the development of listening and spoken language for their children. Through the Knowledge Center, AG Bell develops content that is specific for these families and continue to meet the essential need for information for professionals and parents in improving literacy and written language for children with hearing loss.

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.

The Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (AG Bell) helps families, health care providers and education professionals understand childhood hearing loss and the importance of early diagnosis and intervention. Through advocacy, education, research and financial aid, AG Bell helps to ensure that every child and adult with hearing loss has the opportunity to listen, talk and thrive through the use of spoken language, hearing technology and qualified professional support.
