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.

Congratulations to the Mini-Grant Award recipients for taking the first steps to improve the Woburn community. On the behalf of Social Capital Inc (SCI), CHNA and the Woburn Youth Council I commend you for being active citizens in your community.

Civic engagement is the cornerstone of building healthy communities. All of the award recipients for 2008 have explicitly answered the needs of the Woburn residents. More importantly, you are encouraged to identify a need and apply for the Mini-Grant Award coming in 2008-2009. We encourage you to remain cognizant of the needs in your community so we can collectively keep the Mini-Grant legacy alive.

Please contact me for more information or volunteer opportunities.

The Mini-Grants are made possible by the Northwest Suburban Health Alliance/CHNA 15 DoN funds from Lahey Clinic.

At our next CoffeeHouse we will have as our featured perfomer, Pete Crowley and the Mirror Neurons.

Pete CrowleyA year ago, Pete Crowley was at an open mic and was urged to play. After not having played before an audience in at least five years, since his days as Serendipity frontman, he was finally convinced. Soon after he began playing at venues throughout the region. Recently the "Mirror Neurons" have been added to his sound, creating an organic fullness. Influenced by everything from bebop to Pantera to Howlin Wolf to Leonard Cohen, Pete Crowley and the Mirror Neurons' sound is innovative digestion and amalgamation of their panoply of influences.

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.
