Over the next decade, the number of Americans age 55 or older will increase by almost 30 percent—they will be working well beyond the traditional age of retirement. The goal is to provide employers and mature job seekers with the resources needed to address the changing workforce.
Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP)
SCSEP's goal is to provide work experience and on-the-job training to improve the individual’s skills and thus enhance their ability to obtain an unsubsidized job. Watch a video from the Center for Workforce Inclusion to learn more about the program.
