?

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:

Girl Scouts introduces girls of every age to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) activities that are relevant to everyday life. Whether they’re discovering how a car engine runs, being CSI agents, studying the stars and planets, becoming math whizzes, or learning about careers in STEM fields, girls are moving into the future. They can host science fairs, design Web sites, plan for space exploration, discover the field of meteorology, visit geological sites, and more. Women represent 46% of the total workforce, but only 25% are in technology fields. Early interest in science, math, technology, and engineering is critical to girls’ success in these subjects. Our STEM Initiative encourages girls to push boundaries, test their limits, and investigate the world around them while introducing the idea that they too can become the scientists, engineers, doctors, and astronauts of tomorrow!

Program Description:

GSNCA is committed to preparing girls for a successful adult life, and a fundamental component of our program is financial literacy. Financial literacy can help girls set financial goals and gain the confidence they need to ultimately take control of their own financial future. Whether it's learning to count money, balance a checkbook or play the stock market, Girl Scouts will learn to prepare for their future. Financial literacy can also help all girls set financial goals and gain the confidence they need to ultimately take control of their own financial future. By developing money management skills early in life, girls learn how to increase their income, become responsible consumers, create a budget, build and manage credit, and save and invest for whatever's next.

Outdoor education activities are carried out in outdoor settings and are an important part of Girl Scout program for each age level. Desirable outcomes include enhanced understanding and skill development; increased awareness and understanding of the human interrelationships with the environment; and development of outdoor recreation interests and skills for creative use of leisure time with minimum impact to the environment.

Program Description:

The Girl Scout Leadership Experience develops girls into confident leaders by promoting responsibility, self-discipline, listening skills, teamwork, and the ability to direct and delegate. In Girl Scouts, leadership is not just about building future leaders, but about building girl leaders for today. Through this program, Girl Scouts in North-Central Alabama discover their values, skills, and the world around them; connect with others in a multicultural environment; and take action to make a positive difference in the lives of others. The Leadership Experience incorporates the processes of Girl-Led, Cooperative Learning, and Learning by Doing. As part of our Girl Scout Leadership Experience, we are proud that our girls engage in activities that give back to the community, like the development of initiatives that address needs in the community. Courtney, of Birmingham, started a swim safety campaign in partnership with FOX 6 News in Birmingham. This is just one of the many success stories!

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.

Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama builds girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place! For over a century, Girl Scouts has worked to ensure that all girls, ages 5 to 17, have the opportunity to develop the leadership skills and self-esteem necessary to reach their full potential. We serve girls through both traditional troop meetings and with outreach that takes programs to girls in underserved communities. Programs focus on Leadership, Healthy Living, Financial Literacy, STEM (science, engineering, technology and math), and Outdoor Experiences. More than 15,000 girls in 36 Alabama counties participate in GSNCA activities every year.
