The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is a federally funded job training program for unemployed seniors age 55 and over. SCSEP is seeking employers in Delta, Montrose, Mesa, Garfield, Gunnison, Eagle, Grand, Ouray, Pitkin, Routt and Moffat counties to host a participant in the program. The employer receives free help in exchange for a commitment to help the senior participant gain job skills.
SCSEP is an organization that is committed to improving the quality of life for low income, financially eligible seniors by assigning them to temporary subsidized paid training and assisting them in their search for unsubsidized jobs in their community. SCSEP is the steward of federal funds, appropriated to recruit, train and place eligible seniors in subsidized employment. The participant will be paid to train through funding from the United States Department of Labor.
If you are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization or a city or government entity in one of these counties that would like to receive free help 25 hours per week, please call the regional SCSEP office at 970-256-1382 to see if your organization qualifies to host a participant from the SCSEP program. SCSEP is seeking low income seniors, 55 years or older wanting to receive paid job training through the SCSEP program.
If you are a low income unemployed senior, you may be eligible to participate in this program. Call 970-256-1382 to learn more.
