Senior Community Service Employment Program
SCSEP is a federal workforce program targeted to low-income older workers. The program is administered by the U. S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration through grant agreements with the state and eligible organizations such as District Three Governmental Cooperative.
The purpose of the program is to offer a "Stepping Stone" back into the workforce. Assignments are not meant to be permanent employment. Organizations chosen to be "Host Training Sites" are expected to provide meaningful job skills training to the program participant assigned to them. They are also expected to help and encourage the participant's job search efforts. Individuals will be matched with a position that fits their unique skill set, preferred schedule, physical requirements, training needs and desired location.
Eligibility requirements for seniors are that they be unemployed, age 55 or older, low income, & eligible to work in the U.S. Participants receive 20 hours week paid training at the rate of Federal minimum wage.
Wages and other costs of employing SCSEP participants are paid for by federal grant funds. There is no cost to a participating organization for having an employee assigned to their organization. Results have shown to reduce recruitment efforts for the participating host sites, as many of the participants are hired by the organization hosting them at the end of their assignment when they are qualified, trained, and ready to work!
