Senior Community Service Employment Program …

The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) helps older adults get training skills and job placement to re-enter the workforce. See if SCSEP is right for you.

SCSEP matches eligible older adults with part-time training assignments for nonprofit organizations. Participants build skills and self-confidence, while earning a modest income. For most, their SCSEP experience leads to permanent employment.

SCSEP is funded by the U.S. Department of Labor and is one of three federal workforce development programs that does not overlap with any other similar program. The program serves nearly every county in the nation. The National Council on Aging (NCOA) manages 25 SCSEP offices throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico. NCOA’s work on SCSEP is funded at a 90% level by the U.S. Department of Labor and 10% is supported through matching non-federal dollars.
