Program Overview

The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is a program to help older Americans get back into or remain active in the workforce. It is a part-time community service and work-based training program where participants gain career skills through on the job training in community based organizations in identified growth industries. Participants are placed in a wide variety of non-profit and public facilities, referred to as Host Agencies. Examples of Host Agencies include day-care centers, senior centers, schools, hospitals, and government agencies. SCSEP aims to strengthen the Host Agencies’ responsibility to provide sufficient skills training and professional development that will lead to employment. Additionally SCSEP staff actively engages and coordinate with Host Agencies in the transition of participants into secure permanent unsubsidized employment. SCSEP also works with the business community to identify employers who are interested in hiring qualified, trained mature workers.
