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.

SCI Woburn is seeking interested parties for the 2020 steering committee for WorldFest!  WorldFest is a wonderful community event held each May that celebrates the rich cultural diversity within Woburn as well as the wider world.  The steering committee would meet one weeknight every 3 weeks or so beginning later this month up until the event which will likely be held the third Sunday in May, as usual.  

The Woburn Rec Department is a great resource for residents in all seasons for children, families and adults.  This winter why not take advantage of some of the classes they offer to beat the cold and get some exercise.  Register today for adult fitness classes such as yoga, barre and zumba or children's fitness classes like karate, zumbini, dance and yoga.  There's even a kids painting class on the schedule in February.  Classes begin in January and go through February or March depending on the class.
