The Garage Board Shop was founded by Jerry Carrera. The Shop was opened with the idea for the community youth to come and express themselves through different mediums. It was just not meant to get them to express themselves but to get the youth to apply themselves into positive outlets like music ,dancing and art. The Young DJ’s bands, break dancers , and artist came to find it an urban haven and a proving ground for their talents .

In 2009 Jerry Carrera and Maria “Patty” Ramblaz took over The Garage Board Shop, looking to become more involved with the community. After time they decided to open an after school pro-gram called “Sk8 4 Educate”. The program was meant to combine skateboarding with education by having members treat skating similar to an academic sport much like football or track; encouraging kids to apply themselves in their academics as well as in their skating .

The Garage Board Shop often host art shows display the talent of youth to the community approximately   200-300 kids line up to be part of every show to demonstrate to the public that they are capable of accomplishing something. All of this talent and urban art under one roof was inspiring to witness.
