The goal of Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is to help participants gain work experience and overcome barriers by receiving on-the-job training at not-for-profit, 501(c)3 community based organizations or government agencies.
SCSEP Participants must be: unemployed; at least 55 years of age; a U.S. citizen or legal resident; have a family income of no more than 25% above the Federal poverty guideline and reside in the county that NAPCA is authorized to serve. Participants will train an average of 20 hours per week, and are paid according to Federal, State or local minimum wage, whichever is highest. Participants serve in a wide variety of community service assignments including day-care, childcare, senior centers, public libraries, social service agencies, and government offices. These community service assignments are meant to lessen the isolation faced by many immigrant older adults and lead to employment in positions that pay higher than minimum wage. This program is administered and funded by the National Asian Pacific Center on Aging (www.napca.org) and the U.S. Department of Labor.
NAPCA - SCSEP is an equal opportunity employer/program. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request for individuals with disabilities.
