Mission Statement

The Greater Seattle Bureau of Fearless Ideas is a corps of youth and adults, staff and volunteers, families and local citizens who believe that the power of words, well-written and well-spoken, can open doors to important opportunities. Our tutoring, writing, and publishing programs prepare young people, ages 6 to 18, for a successful future by developing strong writing skills, championing diverse communication styles, and motivating young people to share their stories. Programs at each Fearless Ideas center reach into the surrounding neighborhood to involve adults and businesses in helping youth become engaged citizens and confident leaders. All programs are free and open to families from any socio-economic background.

Description

Working with like-minded, community-focused Seattleites, Teri Hein started The Greater Seattle Bureau of Fearless Ideas, originally incorporated as Pencilhead, in 2004. In early 2005, they were invited to become a chapter of 826 National, the brainchild of acclaimed author and philanthropist Dave Eggers. By 2014 with long waiting lists for all programs and an impressive list of awards, including the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award presented by First Lady Michelle Obama, 826 Seattle decided to expand its offerings and locations and to rebrand under its new name: The Greater Seattle Bureau of Fearless Ideas.
