Young Coders Today. Bold Leaders Tomorrow.


We are all born with a desire to create. Using Lego blocks and paint, our imagination spurs us on to realize our big, bold ideas. In the 21st century, kids have a new tool at their disposal: code, the building blocks for the technologies all around us. 

Young people today want to build something they are passionate about - something that matters. Let’s nurture their passion with skill development in computer science and collaboration, encouragement and the environment to thrive.

Bold Idea is a Dallas nonprofit that develops and empowers young minds to execute bold ideas through the power of technology. > Join our movement. 



ideaSpark is a 14-week course in computer science and 21st-century skill development for students ages 7-14. The program empowers teams to create their bold ideas through collaborative coding sessions.

CReating Service Match

Shelby and Meredith are in the process of developing a website called Service Match. The website matches nonprofits to students in need of service projects. In Shelby's words, "it's a dating website for organizations and volunteers." They will be presenting their work at Microsoft later this month.

They have decided to document their journey by making blog posts and video diaries. Follow along as they discuss the frustrations and triumphs of turning their idea into a reality.
