The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) provides temporary community service training opportunities to older Americans to prepare them for jobs in their community.
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 non-profit and public facilities, such as senior centers, day care centers, schools, and hospitals. This on-the-job training experience can then be used as a bridge to find employment opportunities outside of the program.
Effective July 1, 2019, the Virginia Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) under the National Council on Aging (NCOA) has been sub-contracted to the SkillSource Group, Inc. in partnership with the Fairfax County Department of Family Services (DFS).
