The Woburn Youth Council


Established in 2002, the program engages a diverse group of 12 to 18
year olds in making a difference in the community. This program is
coordinated by SCI and the Boys & Girls Club of Woburn, in
partnership with the North Suburban Family YMCA, and funded by the
Lutheran Church of the Redeemer Foundation. Through the distribution of
mini-grants, other youth projects, and implementing other civic
initiatives Youth Council members are able to proactively engage in
community issues. They receive leadership training and ongoing support
from adult advisors to coordinate the mini-grant process and address
community issues of concern to them. As community leaders, they also
encourage their peers to become active young citizens. Our members have
developed practical skills, learned the importance of leadership and
teamwork, and have gained a better knowledge of community issues.
