Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP)
Columbiana County Department of Job and Family Services (CCDJFS) is proud to have this program as part of our commitment to help people in need.
What is the Senior Community Service Employment Program?
The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is a federal job training program for low-income workers age Fifty-five (55) or older who face barriers to employment. SCSEP places senior workers in part-time paid community service assignments for on-the-job training. SCSEP is sometimes called the Senior Aide Program.
The goal of the Senior Community Service Employment Program is to give unemployed senior workers the job search skills, work experience, and training they need to find unsubsidized jobs in the private sector. The program also promotes senior workers as a valuable resource for employers.
The Senior Community Service Employment Program is funded by the U.S. Department of Labor and administered by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs.
