The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) offers training opportunities to low-income adults age 55 and older in the state of Utah who wish to re-enter the workforce. The program allows participants to overcome barriers to employment by gaining real world work experience at community service organizations, called "host agencies," in the community.
Participants are assigned to host agencies for about 20 hours per week. The objective is to provide current hands-on training that can lead to unsubsidized employment in the private sector. Assignments vary and range from six to 12 months.
In addition SCSEP participants may receive training to update resumes and learn interview skills. Easter Seals-Goodwill staff works with partners in the community to provide training such as updating computer skills, literacy skills, and improving English proficiency. Job leads are also a key component of the services provided.
For businesses, finding quality employees is always a challenge. By partnering with Easter Seals-Goodwill, a private employer gains access to a large pool of high caliber candidates. Mature workers have the work ethic, enthusiasm, loyalty, and life experience to be valuable assets to any workplace environment. Often the only thing they don't have is the opportunity.
