The Senior Community Services Employment Program (SCSEP) is administered by the Department of Employment and Economic Development under the auspices of the State of Alabama Department of Senior Services. The program is designed to assist low income mature job seekers and their communities by providing part-time community service work and training.

Men and women 55 years of age or older who have limited income may become a  SCSEP participant, revitalizing their job skills while supporting local non-profit and governmental agencies.

Earning While Learning

Paid work experience allows enrollees to develop their skills. Formal and informal training is given on the job and through job development services, private sector employer initiatives, classroom training, or a combination of these. 

Work sites in non-profit or governmental host agencies are carefully selected to assure that these sponsors furnish supervision, instruction, and training for assigned participants. Host agencies also agree to consider hiring participants whenever job openings occur.

SCSEP  staff directs and oversees all projects to assure compliance with federal regulations, policies and procedures.
