SCI Woburn Seeks Volunteer for Summer "Week in Woburn"

Do you consider yourself a person who knows a lot about what's going on in the Wu, or do you want to become one? Consider volunteering with SCI Woburn this summer, as we need someone to write our summer editions of the Week in Woburn! In July and August, we need someone to write the Week in Woburn every other week, which includes 2-4 short articles, and 4 calendar events. 

This is a two-hour, every other week commitment, and can go to anyone from high school aged students to retirees! There is some technology involved (using Constant Contact, the SCI Woburn website, etc), so training in June is provided, and there is staff support as well! 

Anyone interested should contact Brian at BKibler@socialcapitalinc.org!
