BBP's original start-up team, composed primarily of members of the Brookings United Church of Christ, evolved by late 2009 into an Advisory Board whose members were more representative of the community at large.
As of August 2016 The Brookings Back Pack Project is an independent 501 (c) 3, consisting of three part-time contracted professionals advised by an Executive Board of Directors.
