About Us

Making technology accessible and useful for those who create communities.

Our Mission

Blueprint strives to make technology more accessible and useful for those who create communities and promote public welfare.

Who we are

Passionate about the intersection between technology and social impact.

We are a group of students at the University of Waterloo dedicated to building technology for social good and driving meaningful change. Each term, our project teams work alongside nonprofits in order to support their efforts toward better serving our communities.

What we do

Amplify the impact of solutions that matter in the social sector.

We partner with local nonprofits, working together to better understand their existing processes and provide technology services such as website and mobile application development, and data analytics to augment them - free of charge.

Our Story

A community built across universities.

Founded in 2012 at UC Berkeley, Blueprint aims to promote technology for social good by developing pro-bono software solutions for nonprofits. The University of Waterloo is Blueprint’s first chapter outside of Berkeley, serving communities in Canada.

Our Values

Amplifying impact

Projects are chosen to help social causes where technology as a solution makes sense and drives greatest levels of change within local communities.

Do good for good

It is our shared philosophy that pro-bono work in no way implies substandard work. Our teams treat all of our projects with the utmost care and integrity.

Learning is a team sport

Collectively curious, and collaboratively learning from each other and our communities about how we can leverage our skills to drive meaningful change.

Culture is key

We’re a team that cares about each other as much as we care about the causes we’re building for. We thrive to maintain a supportive and welcoming environment, always.
