The Northern Virginia Senior Community Services Employment Program (SCSEP) works with local and national partners to give older adults tools and information to stay healthy and secure. SCSEP places mature workers in temporary paid community service training to prepare them for permanent employment outside the program.
SCSEP participants train an average of 20 hours a week and are paid a training stipend that is the highest of federal, state, or local minimum wage directly by SCSEP.
Participants are placed in a wide variety of community service training assignments at nonprofit and public facilities, such as senior centers, community centers, libraries, and hospitals.
This on-the-job training experience can then be used as a bridge to find employment opportunities outside of the program.
The SCSEP program is accepting new participants!
