The mission of SCI Woburn is to strengthen the community by connecting diverse individuals and organizations through civic engagement initiatives. The SCI Woburn website serves as a community resource connecting residents to volunteer opportunities, community events and resources.

Woburn Ambassadors is a new program being presented by Social Capital Inc. (SCI) in partnership with the Woburn Public Schools designed to help families who are newcomers in Woburn connect to everything the community has to offer. In our ambassadors we are looking for an interest in sharing your enthusiasm for the Woburn community with newcomers, a strong knowledge of the community, a commitment to creating an inclusive and welcoming environment in Woburn, and willingness to keep in contact with a family new to the community. 2nd language skills are also helpful but not required.
