Message from SCSEP

Welcome to the homepage of the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP)!

At SCSEP, we believe that achieving the American Dream is possible for everyone, regardless of age. It is our mission to promote pathways to economic self-sufficiency for older individuals and their families who are working to achieve this dream.

Our goals are the enhancement of employment opportunities for older Americans and the promotion of older workers as a solution for businesses seeking a trained, qualified, and reliable workforce. Our strategy is to utilize a service approach that can respond quickly and effectively to the changing needs of business.

We believe that older workers provide a valuable resource to the needs of a 21st century workforce. Through the SCSEP program, we are committed to providing high quality job training and employment assistance to our participants. At the same time, we are also committed to assisting employers that are facing the challenges of today’s workplace by developing a viable workforce that is trained and ready to work.

To provide the training and job placement that benefit the worker and the employer at the local level, we have an extensive network of service providers that cover nearly every county in every state across the country, as well as the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and several U.S. territories. In addition, we partner with public and higher education systems, national and local businesses and community and faith-based organizations.

We invite you to look around our site and learn more about what we can do for older workers and employers. We especially invite you to view our recently produced video that illustrates the value of older workers in the workplace.
