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.
