If we could, we would accept every applicant but unfortunately we cannot manage the volume of people and administrative overhead while still fulfilling our mission to the best of our abilities. The following criteria are what we use to evaluate applicants.
Do you demonstrate a genuine passion for social good?
Do you push yourself to grow in any setting? Do you seek out new ways to grow?
Do you adapt and explore in order to overcome difficulties?
Do you demonstrate positive, hard-working attitude?
Do you display the ability to work well in a team?
Do you value empowering non-profits to achieve their missions through tech?
Blueprint's project structure consists of 4-5 project teams, each with a project leader, a designer, and 4 developers on the team. Each project team is in charge of creating technology resources for a specific non-profit they work with.
The client and the project leader communicate on a weekly basis to ensure the project’s progress. Meetings occur throughout the project engagement, beginning with at least one mandatory project scoping meeting with the project leader at the onset. A formal midpoint presentation will be given in Week 5 of the engagement, and the final recommendation will be delivered at a final presentation in Week 10.
Our club recruits some of the most hard-working, passionate, and brightest students at UC Berkeley, just like you. Through effective leadership, frequent check-ins, and an organized project timeline set with our clients, we hope that the combination of talent, dedication, and care will result in projects that benefit the non-profits we work with.
