Would you like to volunteer in the field of social entrepreneurship, project management, education and sustainable development?
Join the European Solidarity Corps and become part of the Trentino Social Tank team starting from September 2022 for 12 months!
Trentino Social Tank (TST) is a worker cooperative established in 2014 by four young colleagues and with the support of local organisations. Its aim is promoting entrepreneurship, innovation and business development in Trentino with a focus on the welfare and wellbeing sector, although we operate in different branches as well.
TST mainly carries out guidance and training services, in the belief that “business” and “work” are two dimensions that are strongly connected to each other, TST offers business services in the KIBS area (knowledge-intensive business services) and has already offered its consultancy services to approximately 170 Trentino companies. Since 2018 we have been included in the list of 18 national incubators with a high social impact as technical partner of Cariplo Factory and the Giordano Dell’Amore Social Venture Foundation.
Since 2014 it also runs a co-working space in the Gardolo district of Trento, mainly hosting freelancers and smart workers from international companies.
