The Garage Community & Youth Center is overseen by an Executive Board who has the responsibility and authority over all activities directly or indirectly involving The Garage. Kennett Square and West Grove have a Joint Community Advisory Board which serves as a working board to ensure success at each center.

The Executive Board serves an important role in the mission, strategy and oversight of The Garage. In addition, each member must serve as an advocate for the organization and promote good governance.
