Looking for youth interested in panel on race relations!

Youth engaging in conversation

SCI Woburn, in collaboration with the Boys & Girls Club, is planning a youth event on the topic of race relations in Woburn. We are seeking youth volunteers who would be interested in acting as panelists for the event. We are hoping to recruit 4-5 panelists in total. Their role in the discussion will be to respond to a series of questions regarding the topic of racism locally, thus facilitating an open dialogue with the audience.

If you are interested in volunteering as a youth panelist, or you know of anyone who might be a good fit, please contact Mollie O'Brien at mobrien@socialcapitalinc.org.
