NCBA is here to provide you with all of the resources you need for employment with the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) .
Because we recognize that income and productivity are key to maintaining the quality of life our seniors deserve, the National Caucus & Center on Black Aging, Inc., proudly provides employment training and placement services under its Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP). The program is authorized by the Older Americans Act.
We see to it that SCSEP participants receive the necessary job related training in preparation for job assignments. Training takes place in group sessions or at the work site and may involve performing duties at a non-profit, including daycare facilities, faith-based organizations, and senior centers.
Priority is given to Veterans and their qualified spouses, then to individuals who:
- Are over age 65
- Have a disability
- Have low literacy skills or limited English proficiency
- Reside in a rural area
- Are homeless or at risk for homelessness
- Have low employment prospects
- Have been unable to find work after receiving extensive services under Title I of the Workforce Investment Act.
Participants also have access to employment assistance through American Job Centers.
