Program:

Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) (Title V of the Older Americans Act)

Employers recognize the benefit of hiring older workers, who are generally viewed as reliable, loyal, and ethical with well-established critical thinking, leadership, teamwork, and communication skills. The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is a Federal program providing subsidized community service and employment training to low-income, unemployed individuals aged 55 and older. SCSEP utilizes Labor Market Information to identify occupations most likely to hire older workers and prepares participants for those jobs. Some SCSEP employer grantees already work with PA CareerLink® Business Service Teams (BSTs) to develop employment opportunities for older workers.
