What is SCSEP?
The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is a community service and paid job training program for older workers. It was authorized by Congress in Title V of the Older Americans Act of 1965 to provide subsidized, part-time, job training for low-income persons 55 years of age or older.
SCSEP is designed to help seniors receive the training they need to find jobs in the community. Goodwill recognizes the importance of work in your life.
What is the goal of SCSEP?
In addition to providing community services and paid part-time job training, the program has a goal of building your skills and confidence to succeed in a job.
You would train an average of 20 hours a week and are paid the highest of federal, state or local minimum wage. There are a wide variety of community service training opportunities at non-profit and public facilities, including day-care centers, senior community centers, schools and hospitals.
