Social Tinkering is a new kind of social club, a way for people to meet people, a place where people can come to hang out and socialize. We are social connectors and barrier breakers. At Social Tinkering we work to overcome and manage the hurdles that prevent people from coming together. We are fighting social isolation and chronic loneliness by creating a twist on the old social club. So get off your phones and out of your house and COME TINKER WITH US!

***Due to COVID19, we are currently not offering in-person social programming. We are currently focusing on collaborations that create space for building trust, belonging, and happiness throughout Rutland County.

we help people connect, build, and grow community

This is our large group meetup that we host every month and is a great way to check out how this all works. Come to meet new people, build on friendships, and catch up with old friends.

These are smaller group meetups designed to allow for greater connections with relevant topics and activities guiding our facilitated events.

These meetups are opportunities for each of us to increase our understanding of others so that we may see more clearly how we might help support each other.

The need for connection and community is primal, as fundamental as the need for air, water, and food.

Success isn't about how much money you make; it's about the difference you make in people's lives.
