The Senior Community Employment Service Program (SCSEP) is designed to link low-income, older workers to on-the-job training that can help them move into paid employment. Through SCSEP, Goodwill matches eligible individuals age 55 and older with nonprofits or public agencies for on-the-job training in a professional work environment, paid by the SCSEP program. The program gives preference to seniors who have physical or mental disabilities, are veterans or spouses of veterans or who need job training.

Through a national Department of Labor (DOL) grant, Goodwill organizations across the country help ensure that more than 100,000 low-income workers over age 55 are aided by the SCSEP program annually.

“This is a terrific program! The career coaches will help you gain job skills, which will help you find a job you enjoy and let you become independent.” – Darlene, SCSEP participant
