Senior Community Service Employment Program

For Those Aged 55 and Older

We help seniors find work, develop new skills and talents, and improve their financial security. Our Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is an on-the-job training and employment program designed to help anyone 55 and older update needed job skills, build work experience and confidence, and maintain economic security and well-being.

Participants receive paid training, gain valuable skills and experience, and build self-confidence. And you’ll train in a wide variety of locations, including offices, hospitals, daycare centers, and other community organizations.

If you answer “yes” to the following questions, you might be eligible for SCSEP.

  • Are you 55 years of age or older?
  • Are you unemployed?
  • Do you have low or no income?
  • Do you wish to work in your community?
  • Want to learn new skills through on-the-job training?

SCSEP provides paid community service assignments at local and nonprofit organizations, training, referral to needed services, and job search assistance. And there's no cost to participants.
