Two agencies dedicated to helping Seniors Find Jobs

  • Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP)

The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) provides training and employment services to eligible low-income jobseekers age 55 and older to enable them to obtain unsubsidized employment. Program participants “earn while they learn,” gaining competitive job skills and refining existing skills through paid, part-time, on-the-job training assignments at non-profit organizations and governmental entities. During their training, participants earn minimum wages while providing valuable community services.

SCSEP services include:

  • Assessment and development of Individual Employment Plans
  • Supportive services to enable participants to overcome barriers to employment
  • Health screening
  • Additional basic skills training, such as English as a second language, reading and math skills, and General Educational Development (GED) classes
  • Additional targeted occupational skills training such as keyboarding, computer skills, and home health aide skills
  • Training on job search and job retention skills
  • Job search assistance.
