Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP)

The largest program offered by Experience Works is the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP).  This program, funded under Title V of the Older Americans Act as well as state and local grants, enables us to help thousands of low-income individuals, age 55 and older, throughout the United States. 

Through this program, seniors benefit from training, counseling, and community service assignments at faith-based and community organizations in their communities, prior to transitioning into the workforce. 

Participants are placed at eligible host agencies (primarily at faith-based and community organizations) for which they are paid the minimum wage for an average of 20 hours per week.  A host agency is either a private nonprofit organization (other than a political party) that is tax exempt under section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue code of 1954, or a public agency operated by a unit of government.

Thirty-eight percent of Experience Work's SCSEP participants found permanent jobs, notably as teachers' aides, emergency dispatchers, care providers, and clerical assistants.
