Looking for youth interested in panel on race relations!

Youth engaging in conversation

SCI Woburn, in collaboration with the Boys & Girls Club, is planning a youth event on the topic of race relations in Woburn. We are seeking youth volunteers who would be interested in acting as panelists for the event. We are hoping to recruit 4-5 panelists in total. Their role in the discussion will be to respond to a series of questions regarding the topic of racism locally, thus facilitating an open dialogue with the audience.

If you are interested in volunteering as a youth panelist, or you know of anyone who might be a good fit, please contact Mollie O'Brien at mobrien@socialcapitalinc.org.

As part of SCI's Woburn Volunteers for Seniors program, we are holding a fall clean-up day this Friday, November 11 in honor of Veterans day. The clean-up will begin at 2 pm at the Woburn Senior Center. After running through some logistics and gathering tools, the volunteers will split up into groups to head out to the different neighborhoods where we have flagged seniors in need of yard work. 

We have already gathered the forces of such groups as the high school's Spreading Sunshine and St. Vincent dePaul's Junior Society, but we are always looking for more help! If you're interested in coming out on Friday afternoon to do some light yard work and help our Woburn seniors in honor of Veterans day, please contact mobrien@socialcapital.org.

SCI is looking for volunteers!

SNOW

SCI is currently seeking volunteers of all ages to help local Woburn seniors in the upcoming fall and winter seasons. The project intends to match isolated and handicapped seniors with local volunteers to assist them with outdoor chore activities, such as snow shoveling and leaf removal. By collaborating with the Woburn Senior Center and the Woburn Council on Aging, SCI hopes to engage community members to aid and support their local senior citizens!

As the winter season quickly approaches, SCI will be working with the Woburn Senior Center to implement this program again. We are looking for volunteers of all ages who would be interested in helping! This is a great way to get involved in the community, meet local seniors, and also earn Y.E.S. hours! If you're interested in participating, or have any further questions, please contact mobrien@socialcapitalinc.org.
