    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.

    Currently, SCSEP operates in six states. 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.
