The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) helps low-income (living at or below 125% of Federal Poverty Guidelines), unemployed adults 55 and older. These adults want to or need to return to work, but may need extra support, updated skills, work experience, and job search and placement assistance to successfully find and keep a job.
Adults 55 and over deserve to live in communities that are respectful, inclusive, and free of discrimination based on a person’s age, and to be celebrated for their accomplishments and contributions. Through SCSEP, we help eligible individuals get the real work experience that they need through paid, part-time community service assignments.
The services of this program are ideal for low income, unemployed adults, 55 or older who:
- wish to update their resumes with a current work experience,
- need assistance with job search,
- are retired and want to return to work part time or full time,
- are widowed/have lost their partner and have little recent work experience outside the home,
- want to return to the workforce and give back to their communities,
- want to feel confident that they and their families can live vibrant, purposeful lives at any age.
