Social Capital Inc. strengthens communities by connecting diverse individuals and organizations through civic engagement initiatives. They envision a nation where individuals are strongly connected to their neighbors and play an active role in shaping the destiny of their communities.
Since 2002, Social Capital Inc. (SCI) has been a national leader in exploring how communities can systematically, intentionally, weave stronger social fabrics connecting its members. SCI envisions a nation where individuals are strongly connected to their neighbors and play an active role in shaping the destiny of their communities. This increase in human connections, or 'social capital', will result in communities that are safer, healthier and more vital. Teens can get involved in Social Capital Inc. by joining SCI's youth councils in Woburn, Dorchester, and Lynn. Youth in each of these councils meet regularly to organize and carry out activities and events that will help to improve each community. Young adults older than 18 also have the opportunity to get involved with SCI as full-time, paid AmeriCorps volunteers. SCI AmeriCorps positions are available in all three communities.
