Senior Community Service Employment Program

The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) fosters and promotes individual economic self-sufficiency through useful, part-time opportunities in community service assignments for unemployed, low-income people, ages 55 and older. It helps overcome barriers that create poor employment prospects, with the aim of increasing the number of older workers in both the public and private sectors. This program offers temporary job training and pays wages.

Community service assignments provide participants the opportunity to develop their skills and confidence to meet their individual career goals. GEDs and other job-related classes are provided while the participant contributes to the general welfare of a community through a specific assignment. Participants are assigned to government and non-profit agencies, based on their initial assessment and chosen career path, as well as the community needs.
