ABLE Can Help

Operation ABLE's SCSEP participants work an average of 20 hours per week; paid a stipend and are employed in a wide variety of community service activities. In addition, one receives job search assistance and guidance towards a more permanent job.  Through ABLE's dedicated SCSEP staff, participants build confidence, and get what they need to compete in today’s job market.

* The Senior Community Service Employment Program is a U.S. Department of Labor equal opportunity employer/program administered by Operation ABLE and the Executive Office of Elder Affairs. SCSEP 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.
Operation ABLE is compliant with P.L. 116-94, Division A, Title V 505.
