Senior Community Service Employment Program
The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) promotes part-time employment opportunities in community service activities for unemployed low-income persons (at or below 125% of current federal poverty level) who are age 55 and older. The SCSEP's goals are to foster individual economic self-sufficiency and promote useful opportunities in community service activities and to increase the number of persons who may enjoy the benefits of unsubsidized employment. Participants usually work an average of 20 hours a week for which they are paid the federal or state minimum wage, whichever is higher. The SCSEP is administered at the federal level by the United States Department of Labor's (USDOL) Employment and Training Administration. The USDOL currently provides SCSEP funds to the Pennsylvania Department of Aging (PDA) and seven national organizations that provide SCSEP services in the Commonwealth. The names of the seven national organizations that provide SCSEP services in the Commonwealth are: American Association of Retired Persons Foundation, National Council on Aging, National Urban League, National Association of Spanish Speaking Elderly, National Asian Pacific Center on Aging, The Workplace and Associates for Training and Development.
It should be noted that Experience Works, Senior Service America, Goodwill and National Caucus on Black Aged will no longer be providing SCSEP services in PA effective 2-1-17.
