myBlueprint is a website that is available for all student in NL under NLESD.   

Students can learn about their interests, skills, passions, and feelings; they can explore their opportunities in school, the community, or in post-secondary, and the world of work and they can reflect on who they want to become and set goals for their education, leisure, community life, and work that will keep them engaged and happy.

The end result will be that students create an individualized plan to help them achieve their goals, transition to secondary school and post-secondary, and successfully shape their future.
