    At Goodwill®, we help seniors find work, develop new skills and talents, and build their financial security by taking advantage of the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP). SCSEP is an on-the-job training and employment program designed to help those aged 55 and older update their jobs skills, build work experience and confidence, and continue to have economic security and well-being.

    As a Participant

    You receive paid training, gain valuable skills and experience, and build self-confidence. You can use your skills and talents to improve your community by training in a wide variety of locations, including offices, hospitals, daycare centers, and other community organizations.

    Want to know if you qualify? Answer the following questions:

    • Are you 55 years of age or older?
    • Are you unemployed?
    • Do you earn a low or no income? (Goodwill will help you determine the income criteria.)
    • Do you wish to work in your community?
    • Do you want to be paid to learn new skills through on-the-job training?

    If you answered “yes” to the above questions, you may be eligible for SCSEP.

    Recently, SCSEP expanded it operations into 9 states and 20 local Goodwill organizations. Even if the Goodwill in your area is not currently involved with SCSEP, it may still offer services to help you find a job. Contact an employment specialist at the Goodwill near you to find out which of its services may be of benefit to you.
