Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP)

 SCSEP is the largest federally-funded program for older adults who seek employment and training assistance, as well as civic engagement. Through this transitional employment program, Easterseals partners with community-based non-profit organizations and government agencies (host agencies) to provide participants with training opportunities to update their skills. During time in SCSEP, job seekers work with Easterseals staff to target and achieve personal employment goals

About Participant Training Assignments

SCSEP participants get work experience by completing a community service training assignment. There they gain marketable work experience and develop a supportive network that helps in the transition toward employment.
