CONCORD — The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) celebrates National Employ Older Workers Week September 22–28.
The NH State SCSEP is pleased to acknowledge this year's SCSEP host training sites who hired the SCSEP participants trained at their work sites. Their commitment to providing training, support and guidance allowed participants to successfully complete their training and achieve their employment goal.
Second Start-First Start Children's Center, the State of NH–Disability Determination Unit in Concord and The Upper Room, A Family Resource Center in Derry, recognized the SCSEP participants trained at their sites as reliable, qualified and skilled workers which resulted in their employment.
The Senior Community Service Employment Program is a community service and work based training program for older workers. The program provides subsidized, service-based training for eligible NH residents who are age 55 and older who are unemployed.
Participants are paid minimum wage and work 17 hours per week in a wide variety of community service activities at host training sites in non-profit or public facilities. It is intended that community service training serves as a bridge to unsubsidized employment opportunities which is the goal of the program.
Non-profit or public entities interested in providing training to SCSEP participants or want more information on the program, can contact 603-225-3295 or 1-800-856-5525.
SCSEP is funded by the U.S. Department of Labor. The NH State SCSEP is administered by the N.H. Department of Resources & Economic Development – Office of Workforce Opportunity and operated by Community Action Program, Belknap-Merrimack Counties, Inc.
