Fearless Ideas is currently Looking for new board members to join our Fearless Board of Directors!

The Greater Seattle Bureau of Fearless Ideas (BFI) is looking for a few exceptional folks to step up and join us as board members. We are an organization committed to creating communities of kind, creative, and fearless student writers & storytellers across Seattle so that they may unleash the power of their own voices.

Founded in 2005 as 826 Seattle, BFI has evolved to become a local community institution, with locations in Greenwood and Yesler Terrace, along with connections at schools and other organizations across the Puget Sound region.

Over the years, we’ve served thousands of students ages 6 – 18 in in-school and afterschool writing & storytelling programs, published hundreds of books of student works, run a multitude of workshops and summer programs, and helped young people tell their own stories.


In just the last 6 months of 2023, BFI:


  • Served 228 students across all programming areas

  • Brought our programming to students in 8 classrooms

  • Published 7 books of student work

  • Ran after school programming 4 days a week during Fall & Winter sessions

  • Helped graduating seniors from the Yesler Terrace community craft their personal college entrance essays


We believe in the life-changing power of fearless creativity and self-expression. Once introduced to us, our young people return year over year to keep learning, growing, and mentoring their peers.


If you’re interested in learning more, we’d love to connect with you! Here is a Board Member Job Description, and you can email us at to learn more.
