Job Seekers 55 and Up

Learn about the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP)

This program is for unemployed job seekers 55 and up who are committed to finding a job. Coverage areas include, in Massachusetts: Essex, Middlesex, Suffolk, Norfolk, and Worcester Counties and most of New Hampshire.  Participants must meet Federal low-income guidelines. They will be paid for training in their own community for up to 20 hours a week, get help searching for a job, and gain new work experience which can lead to unsubsidized employment.

Mature students learning computer skills

Job seekers are assigned to government agencies or non-profits, and intensive job search assistance and skills training is available. The goal is to find unsubsidized employment within a year. This is a terrific opportunity for our community of job seekers 55 and up who have been out of work for long periods of time and need current work experience.

Attend a SCSEP Information Session on Fridays at 10:00am at 174 Portland Street, 5th Floor, Boston or at a location near you.  Learn more here, or contact Tarnya Jones-Jenkins at 617.542.4180 x123 tjones-jenkins@operationable.net.
