Join us for Social Capital Inc.'s May 2021 WorldFest! This year, WorldFest will be a month-long event where we will focus on a different region of the world each week! We will feature Europe, Latin America, Asia including the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent, and the Carribean. 

Throughout the month we will host various workshops and activities to celebrate the different cultures within our community and raise awareness of the injustices many immigrants and minority groups face today. Although much of the festival will be virtual, we also hope to add an in-person element by hosting small, outdoor performances. These activities will be geared for both adults and kids in the Woburn area!   

We are looking for volunteers to assist in planning and executing the events for WorldFest. If you would be interested in being on a volunteer planning committee for this event, please contact Sophie Ichizawa at sichizawa@socialcapitalinc.org or Jenna Francis at jfrancis@socialcapitalinc.org

On Friday, all members of the Woburn community are invited to come together for a vigil to honor the victims of the Atlanta spa shootings and to stand in solidarity with our Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community members.

We will gather on the Woburn Common at 5:15 p.m. Friday evening (3/26). A brief speaking program will begin at 5:30 p.m., with voices from our local leaders, the AAPI community and allies. Click here to leave a message to share at the vigil or in the days afterward.

COVID-19 safety precautions will be in place. All are asked to wear a mask and maintain 6 feet of physical distancing from those outside of your household. The event will be live streamed through the Facebook event and available later through a Woburn Public Media Center broadcast.

The Woburn Parent Network is hosting it's next Parent Support Forum on Wednesday, March 24th, at 6PM.

Social Capital Inc.'s, Jenna Francis, will share some helpful yoga and mediation techniques to destress and relax! This will be followed by an open discussion, where parents can discuss any challenges they are facing, as well as share resources and tools with one another.

We plan to have facilitators and outreach materials translated in Spanish, Haitian Creole and Portuguese.
