Multidisciplinary teams of Mary Washington students are looking to work with mission driven individuals and organizations who are focused on social impact in the Fredericksburg area. Whether you’re a new organization or an established organization, launching a new program or expanding a proven program, we’re interested in working alongside you. If you’re interested in working with us and accelerating your impact, use the form below to submit a project proposal.

Project sponsors will work closely with Social Impact Lab organizers to offer an appropriate design challenge for the lab format.

Lab projects are carefully curated by organizers to provide the best opportunity for participants to learn about social impact design and make a distinct difference through the power of design. 

Lab participants are matched with specific projects based on need, interest, or background. 

Together, teams will be working towards co-creating a workable prototype based on their specific project needs. The final product that teams work towards range from service blueprints, physical products, tech or digital assets.
