We're raising $15,000 for The Bureau of Fearless Ideas' 15th anniversary.
I am so honored to be the Executive Director for Fearless Ideas. We provide incredible writing and storytelling programs for youth in Seattle. Our team of staff work with hundreds of volunteers to provide small group learning experiences, building creativity and confidence each day.
I love to watch our field trip program where a class has two hours to create their own stories, with never seen before characters, fun adventures and ingenious plots. Then each student writes their own ending and goes home with their published book.
In our after school program, many students start in 2nd or 3rd grade and keep coming through high school. Fearless Ideas is such an important part of their lives, they stick with us for 8 - 10 years.
We also build young leaders. This summer several of our workshops were led by teens. Our Podcasting workshop was led by a long time studnet and youth leader, who has her own podcast and wanted to share her love with elementary students.
Through building a sense of community and fostering creativity, we are supporting our youth to be the authors of their own futures. Please join me in ensuring that we can continue to provide these impactful experiences for all students, especially those who need us the most.
