?

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 Description:

Victims of domestic violence and sexual assault and their advocates continue to identify the need for civil and legal representation as a top priority. ANDVSA's Legal Advocacy and ProBono Program responds to this vital need by providing both direct legal assistance through our staff attorneys and Pro Bono Program and training to victim advocates and others across the state. Since receiving Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) funding nearly 300 Alaska attorneys have volunteered with the Legal Advocacy Project, donating on average between 25-85 hours to each case, equaling millions of dollars in attorney time donated to the project. The Legal Advocacy Project trains and recruits volunteer attorneys. Since its inception in 1999, the ANDVSA Pro Bono program has received more than 2000 referrals, operated an Information and Referral Hotline, provided award-winning support materials to attorney's - including our Family Law Practice Manual and Women's Legal Rights Handbook, and provided continuing legal education and training to more than 1500 victim advocates, attorneys, law enforcement officers, court personnel and more.

Program Long-Term Success:

This program has been around for approximately 15 years and has saved many lives.

Program Short-Term Success:

In this past fiscal year, we had over $1.2Million in donated probono attorney time spent representing victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Program Success Monitored by:

Program Success Examples:

“I am so Grateful for everything you did to me and my son, your help is countless and I wanna say Thank You for everything! May God continue to bless you and your family.” Another attorney who we helped to get full custody last year just wrote and said, “I wish there was some way that I could thank you and show you how much I appreciate everything you’ve done for my son and I, it means more than words can describe…”

Program Description:

The ANDVSA Training Project provides training and technical assistance to community service providers and advocates for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault throughout Alaska. The ANDVSA Training Project  provided more than 9,350 clock hours of training to more than 1,500 service providers, advocates and interdisciplinary teams serving communities across the state in the past fiscal year. The project, in partnership with the Council on Domestic Violence and the Alaska Native Women's Coalition provided three days of training for 80 rural victim service providers at its annual conference and responded to more than 3000 requests for technical assistance. Project Director Patti Bland also heads up a staff exchange and mentoring team to provide opportunities for advocates to learn skills and enhance cultural understanding through mentoring and community-based training. The Project has developed curriculum materials for reaching under-served populations including its "Getting Safe and Sober: Real Tools You Can Use" manual, that has been used in programs throughout Alaska, Canada, Mexico and New Zealand.

Program Long-Term Success:

Program Short-Term Success:

A University Online training course about domestic and sexual violence; Real Tools Manual in English and Spanish - resource for providers on co-occurrence of domestic and sexual violence, substance abuse and mental health

Program Success Monitored by:

In 2013, 876 advocates were trained by ANDVSA. Quotes from the Wellness Conference: “I took a lot from this and learned a lot about myself.” It’s important to see how self-care is an on-going experience.” “I learned how challenging it can be to function in trauma... this helps me understand more about our expectations of clients living in trauma.”

Program Success Examples:

“The ANDVSA staff is so well prepared and knowledgeable, it’s always a joy to come to one of their conferences.” Direct quotes from evaluations: “I enjoyed the training so much and especially being with my peeps from around the state.” “The presenters for sex trafficking and the supervising DA were AWESOME!”

Program Description:

Through support from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the Network has spearheaded statewide prevention efforts. After 18 months of collaboration, ANDVSA and a 20-member statewide steering committee produced a comprehensive primary prevention plan, outlining achievable goals for prevention activities. In concert with ANDVSA's Communications Project, the Prevention Project produced the state's first ever campaign aimed at promoting healthy relationships and healthy sexuality among teens. The Project has also provided a leadership role in improving health education in schools, adapting evidence-based prevention curricula for Alaska. Its annual Lead On! For Peace and Equality conference brings together youth from across the state for leadership training, resulting in more than 25 youth-led projects in 2009.

Program Long-Term Success:

Alaska continues to receive the unacceptable ranking of “highest per capita rates of sexual assault” nationally. In 2013, ANDVSA built upon our existing awareness campagins focused on sexual assault and consent. These TV spots were aired over 3,500 times statewide March through June of 2013. Print materials were in high demand and we distributed more than 10,000 pieces of collateral materials on consent across the state.

Program Short-Term Success:

ANDVSA Prevention Project provided state and community-based trainings, web-conferences, and support for member programs and organizations across the state reaching more than 640 individuals. ANDVSA worked closely with the Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault to plan and coordinate a prevention summit for more than 18 community teams from across the state.

Program Success Examples:

In partnership with organizations from all across the state of Alaska, ANDVSA held its 6th annual youth leadership conference, Lead On for Peace and Equality. In 2013 over 120 youth and supporting adults attend Lead On, with the ultimate goal of learning and implementing skills around the prevention of violence in local communities. Youth from Anchorage, Angoon, Atmautluak, Bethel, Cordova, Deering, Dillingham, Dutch Harbor, Eyak, Hooper Bay, Homer, Juneau, Ketchikan, Kiana, Kipnuk, Kodiak, Kotlik, Kotzebue, Kwethluk, Napaskiak, Nenana, Noatak, Nome, New Stuyahok, Old Harbor, Sandpoint, Scammon Bay, Sitka, St. Michael, St. Paul and Togiak were able to participate. This year Lead On combined dynamic performances and workshops on healthy relationships, cultural identity and respect to inspire youth to make positive changes in their communities. Youth reflected on and learned about ways to promote respect and healthy relationships through technology such as social media, apps and online campaigns. Teens left Lead On inspired to use their leadership skills to make communities stronger across the state.

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.

ANDVSA and our 23-member programs and affiliates have had significant impact on addressing domestic and sexual violence in Alaska through a wide range of programs and services. The organization has been successful in promoting, nourishing and sustaining a collective movement to end violence in Alaska. The Network helps link member programs, facilitates communication and cooperation, and helps secure funding and support for its members - which provide emergency shelter, food, clothing, transportation, legal assistance, counseling and more to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, as well as community education and advocacy. The Network itself, through direct support from federal and state agencies, as well as private donations, provides training and technical assistance, prevention programming, civil legal representation through its Legal Advocacy Project and Pro Bono Services, communications support, as well as a variety of award-winning publications and manuals.
