SCI Attends Encore Boston's #Gen2Gen Campaign Launch

On Monday, December 12, SCI was excited to attend the Encore Boston Network's Generation to Generation campaign launch event at The Boston Foundation. It was a motivating two and a half hours of nonprofit networking, compelling speakers, and idea exchange. 

Generation to Generation is a five-year campaign focused on mobilizing adults aged 50+ to help young people thrive. Its pilot programs are being launched in four cities including Los Angeles, San Jose, and Seattle, with the hopes of expanding to over 250 communities. The idea came about due to the ever-more-visible notion that we are in the midst of an intergenerational war. Many people across the nation believe that each new generation will be worse off than their parents. However, surveys have shown that millions of adults 50+ are eager to devote their time and energy to working with the youth of today and help them lead vibrant, successful lives. In response, this campaign hopes to close the intergenerational gap and allow for collaboration across all age groups. Read more

Social Capital Inc. (SCI), a nonprofit organization based in Woburn, is currently seeking volunteers for their newest project, Woburn Volunteers for Seniors. This project will match isolated and handicapped seniors with local volunteers, who will assist them in various outdoor chores such as snow shoveling and leaf removal. Volunteers will also be on call in case of sudden, heavy snowfall that, without assistance, could leave many seniors homebound. SCI will collaborate with the Woburn Senior Center and the Woburn Council on Aging for the project.Read more
