Ca' Foscari sociale project

Ca Foscari sociale is a project launched by the university in 2012 to boost the university community’s cooperation with the Veneto Region’s non-profit associations.

In 2017 Ca' Foscari Sociale has started a partnership with Startempo, a project realized during "The Urban Innovation Bootcamp"[IT] of Ca' Foscari University.

Startempo is a new online platform, where every member of the Ca' Foscari community can offer his time and competencies for voluntary activities, bringing innovation to the territory.


What is this about?

With this new online platform is easier to match the Venetian non-profit needs with the professionalism and the talents the Ca' Foscari community wants to make available.

Taking part to the project means leaving new experiences, acquire new knowledge, dveloping and increasing competencies, using them in the city where you live, study or work, getting actively involved in improving the local context.

Everyone can cooperate joining the online platform and taking part to the voluntary initiatives offered in Venice, Treviso and in other Venetian cities.


How does it work?

The territory no-profit organizations publish on the online platform the proposed projects, indicating the required skills, times and the volunteers profiles.
