About The Program

The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is a community service job training program for older Americans. Authorized by the Older Americans Act, the program provides training for older job seekers who have low incomes and are unemployed.

Goodwill is helping older job seekers learn new job skills while training at public and nonprofit organizations in their communities such as housing agencies, food banks, libraries, schools, senior centers, and child care centers. The goal is that program participants will take the skills they learn in the program to gain employment in the private or public sector for which wages, or wages and tips, are paid that equal or exceed the federal hourly minimum wage.

When older job seekers come to Goodwill, employment specialists deliver thorough needs assessments, create individual employment plans, administer basic skills classes and assist in job placement, training and eventual transition to non-subsidized employment.

Goodwill's SCSEP effort has helped more than 8,502 older workers in local communities since 2006.
