The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP)

What is SCSEP?

Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is a community service and work-based training program for older workers. Authorized by the Older Americans Act, the program provides subsidized, service-based training for low-income persons 55 or older who are unemployed and have limited employment prospects.

Older workers are placed at non-profit host agencies. The older worker must commit to training 19 hours per week, earning the State of Michigan minimum wage and participate in job search activities.

Become a host agency and you will be providing the SCSEP participant with an opportunity to experience personal growth while acquiring new skills and new job opportunities. The goal of the program is to strengthen eligible applicant’s job skills and prepare them to move into unsubsidized employment.

SCSEP Career Planners will seek your input to determine training opportunities available at your agency and will work with you to develop and identify the responsibilities for these training positions and match participants to your agency.

Federal regulations require that all SCSEP host agencies be either 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organizations or public agencies.
