?

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

Program Description:

GSESC continually strives to reach out to every girl, everywhere regardless of racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, religious, or cultural background.  In an effort to reach every girl, Girl Scouts has designed community based/Membership Extension (formerly Outreach) programs to reach girls in underprivileged communities.  These programs are funded by GSESC and led by paid staff members in most circumstances.  Many of the girls in our 21 county service area attend schools or reside in low-income, high risk minority communities. As a result, the majority of the girls are unable to participate in Girl Scouting programs due to extreme barriers, such as:  financial hardship, lack of transportation, lack of parental support, violence, and language barriers.  Many girls in these communities are also confronting challenges such as aggression, peer pressure, teen pregnancy, poor academic performance and truancy. Therefore, Girl Scouts is committed to bringing relevant programs and establishing a presence in all communities.    By offering the Girl Scout Program to girls 5-17, we believe it is possible to reverse the high risk factor, enabling our youth to become self-sustaining adults and lessen the strain on limited community resources.

Program Long-Term Success:

1,755 at-risk girls were served by the Membership Extension program last year in 51 different community partner locations, such as the Boys and Girls Club, housing authorities, YMCA and after school programs.

Program Description:

GSESC operates 2 camp locations, Sandy Ridge Training Center in Bennettsville and Camp Low Country in Cordesville, SC.  These camps provide resident camp programs for an average of 450 girls per year.  Girls can participate in programs for outdoor living skills, nature, weird science, archery, lo ropes/team building, swimming, climbing wall, and various arts and crafts. They also have cookouts, attend all-camp campfires, enjoy themed events and participate in living units and all camp activities.  Another popular camp option for girls attending Camp Low Country is Equestrian Camgrooming, riding and barn upkeep. Providing the opportunity for low-income girls to attend summer resident camp has always been a top priority of Girl Scouts of Eastern South Carolina.

Program Short-Term Success:

Last year, 60 girls were given an average of $125 per girl in financial assistance to attend summer resident camp.

Population Served:
Female Children ( 5 - 14 years)

Program Description:

GSESC is responsible for developing, staffing and scheduling program events to serve the Girl Scout membership throughout our 21 county jurisdiction.  In 2010, 110 programs were offered, focusing on Science and Technology, Leadership, Financial Literacy, Environmental Awareness, Healthy Living, Arts, Cultural History and Life Skills.

Program Long-Term Success:

In May 2009, GSESC started a FIRST LEGO League (FLL) robotics program in our council.  FLL is a worldwide robotics program, which introduces children ages nine to fourteen to real-world engineering challenges by building LEGO-based robots to complete tasks on a thematic playing surface.  The goal of GSESC Goes LEGO is to engage middle school age girls in science, technology, engineering and math programming. FLL teams, guided by their imaginations and adult coaches, discover exciting career possibilities and, through the process, learn to make positive contributions to society. We are currently supporting eleven FLL teams through our GSESC Goes LEGO all-girl robotics program. Five of our teams recently placed first in their regional competitions and will compete in the state competition
