The article examines the social capital generated by a project in the educational sector of the Province of Trento, also known as Summerjobs 16-17. Following, on the theoretical level, the analysis of social capital from the relational perspective and drawing, on the empirical level, on documents and reports provided by the actors involved in the 2011-2014 editions of this enterprise, the paper identifies the resources, goals, cooperative forms, and values underlying the relations developed during the project. The combination of these four elements produces an empirical case of social capital, which articulates on three levels: the individual level, referring to the single participants in the project; the network level, concerning the entire set of their relations; and, finally, the community level, related to the local area of the province.
