Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP)
What is SCSEP?
The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is a community service and work-based job training program for older Americans. Authorized by the Older Americans Act, the program provides training for low-income, unemployed seniors. Participants also have access to employment assistance through American Job Centers.
NARCOG thanks the Center for Workforce Inclusion, Inc. for selecting our organization to operate SCSEP in our region.
How the Program Works
Eligible program participants receive an assignment to a government or non-profit 501(c)(3) agency in their communities. Agencies that have agreed to participate in the program include schools, libraries, museums, and senior centers.
Enrollees train for 19.75 hours a week at the rate of $7.25 per hour, receiving on-the-job training, learning new skills, updating previous skills, and getting work experience that prepares them to reenter the workforce.
NARCOG's Senior Employment Program requires participants:
- Be age 55 or older
- Report income that does not exceed 125% of the federal poverty level
- Reside in Cullman, Lawrence, and Morgan County
- Be unemployed at the time of application
- Agress to continue actively seeking employment while enrolled in the program
