Older adults who meet age and income requirements may be eligible to receive training in current job skills while working at a community service agency.
Participants earn a stipend while training at a community service agency. Participants earn a stipend for working 20-25 hours weekly and the program pays for training. Participants are required to attend quarterly Job Club meetings and receive one-on-one assistance with developing goals, an individual employment plan, resume, interview skills, and contacts with prospective employers.
SCSEP is funded by the U. S. Department of Labor and focuses on the needs of mature workers, the community, and employers. SCSEP prepares eligible mature workers for unsubsidized jobs through training at community-based organizations. The eligible participant will receive a stipend while he or she is in training with the goal of getting unsubsidized employment.
