It is made up of two General Secretaries, one from France and one from Germany, who are appointed in agreement by both governments. The duration of a term is six years each, can be renewed once, and begins time-displaced by three years. Since January 2020, the FGYO has been headed by Tobias Bütow and Anne Tallineau.
