Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) fosters and promotes useful, part-time opportunities in community service activities for unemployed, low-income people ages 55 and older. The program encourages individual economic self-sufficiency and increases the number of older people who enjoy the benefits of unsubsidized employment in the public and private sectors.
Seniors serve their communities through paid temporary assignments with local non-profit and government organizations. SCSEP also helps seniors find work in the private sector. Employers have cited senior workers as having a superior work ethic, loyalty to their jobs and employers, the ability to handle flexible schedules, and eagerness to learn new technologies.
"SCSEP placements help people learn new job skills that are needed in today's workplace. Equipping older workers with these skills helps achieve SCSEP's ultimate goal of moving them into unsubsidized jobs," said Emily Stover DeRocco, Assistant Secretary of Labor for Employment and Training.
Job seekers age 55 and older may apply regardless of employment history or educational levels.
Carlton County applications are accepted at the Cloquet WorkForce Center, 715 Cloquet Avenue, Cloquet, 218-878-4414 or 1-800-284-7425.
Central Minnesota Jobs and Training Services is a non-profit employment and training agency. For over 20 years, CMJTS, a partner in the Minnesota WorkForce Center System, has helped make connections between business and skilled job seekers in central Minnesota.
Administered by the U.S. Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration, SCSEP has helped older workers find productive jobs for nearly 40 years.
