The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is an employment training program for low-income, unemployed individuals aged 55 years and older. The program provides subsidized, part-time work experience for a limited time through community service. Participants in the program learn new skills and talents, or enhance existing skills, through valuable work experience and other training to become competitive in today's workforce.
SCSEP is a temporary job training program. The program helps you learn the skills you need and access other resources so you can find a job in one or two years. Some people need more time to complete their training. The longest time that you can stay in SCSEP is 48 months.
