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.

On Tuesday January 29, 2008 the Woburn Youth Council conducted the annual Youth and Adult Connections Forum at New Horizons.

The primary objective of the forum was for youth to engage in a dialogue centered on civic concerns. Youth contributed creative ways to improve their community and adults brought a sense of reason and practicality to executing the new ideas. Bridging the generational gap always enlightens youth and enhances their ability to find solutions.

Social Capital Inc (SCI) is proud to announce the Woburn Arts & Culture Today events publication. The publication consists of an artist directory and events calendar. The directory will be used to provide information regarding local performers, musicians and artisans. All Woburn artists are encouraged to click here and post their information in the directory. The calendar will be used to highlight and promote cultural events in and around Woburn. Presently, SCI is seeking submissions from local performers, musicians, artisans, agencies and programs for individual contact information and upcoming cultural events for Spring 2008. The deadline for submissions for our spring brochure will be February 22, 2008.

The Woburn Youth Council has released applications for their mini-grant program. Mini-grants can be used for youth driven community projects. Grants awards range anywhere from $100-$1500. All Woburn youth are encouraged to apply. Members of the Youth Council will be present at a table in the cafeteria of Woburn Memorial High School from January 14th - 18th and January 28th - February 1st. The final grant application will be due on Friday, February 8th. Applications can either be turned in at the Woburn Boys & Girls Club or turned in via email.

Monday January 21, 2008, the Woburn community will celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This is a time to recognize our Woburn humanitarians for their civic contributions. The Drum Major Award honors these individuals. Please join us as we pay homage and remember Dr. King and the impact he had on improving our nation's quality of life.

Secure The Call Foundation is collecting unneeded cell phones, inspecting, cleaning and charging them and then reprograms them to be used for free 911 emergency phones. Any phone that can be turned on can access 911 services even without a carrier service plan. These phones are distributed to domestic violence shelters, senior centers, neighborhood watch groups, school crossing guards and other agencies with an immediate need for 911 access.

Hello Woburn Residents,

The brisk winter is quickly approaching and every year the Woburn Youth Council collects coats from the community and donates them to charity.

From Dec. 7th - Dec. 15th the Youth Council will provide hangers to the community so all Woburn residents can participate. Traditionally, the hangers are dropped off at front doors in each residential area. Please don’t hesitate to donate any coats due to stains or broken zippers because local cleaners have volunteered to remedy any problems. If you are a retailer and you wish to donate coats you can drop them off at the Social Capital Inc. (SCI) office located at 165 New Boston Street Suite 233, Woburn MA.

On Saturday December 15, 2007 the Youth Council will make rounds in the community to pick up all donations from 12pm-3pm. Feel free to leave your donations at the front door on the hangers they’ve provided. For all inquiries please contact me at (781) 935-2244 or by clicking here. Thank you for your participation.
