The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is the
nation's oldest program to help low-income, unemployed individuals aged
55+ find work. Participants receive the federal training wage for
approximately 18 hours per week.
AARP Foundation first matches eligible older job seekers with local
nonprofits and public agencies so they can increase skills and build
self-confidence, while earning a modest income. Based on their
employment interests and goals, participants may also receive supportive
services and skills training through an educational institution. Their
SCSEP experience most often leads to permanent employment.
SCSEP is administered by the U.S. Department of Labor. AARP Foundation
operates in 21 states and Puerto Rico.
