Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP)

Work-Based Training Program for Older Americans

Since July 2003, SER National has been funded by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) to operate the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) focusing on the training and employment needs of the mature worker. SER currently serves over 3,500 participants in over 250 counties in 6 states. SER SCSEP, in its fourteenth year of operation, is administered in the following states: California, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Texas, and Wisconsin.

Participants in the SER SCSEP come from all walks of life, have diverse work experiences and possess various levels of education. SER partners with local non-profit organizations (host agencies) to provide participants with training opportunities to update their skills. SER SCSEP has been successful in placing individuals in full and part-time jobs which benefit them economically and socially.

SCSEP is a community service and work based training program for older workers. Authorized by the Older Americans Act, the program provides subsidized, service-based training for low-income persons 55 or older who are unemployed and have poor employment prospects.

Staying True to Your Word

Rudy Frias was hired as a security guard in Ft. Worth, TX.

Rudy Frias was hired as security guard in Ft. Worth, Texas.

Sixty-five year old Rudy Frias of Forth Worth had not worked in four years due to health issues when he made his way to SER National. Having previously worked in construction and no longer able to do so and equipped with only a 9th-grade education, Mr. Frias worried about being able to find employment. He and another SCSEP participant were placed at a host agency, where neither performed well. He vowed to his SCSEP ETS that he would never underperform again. He was then successfully placed at a second host agency, Cornerstone Assistance Network, where true to his word, he performed exemplary work. Mr. Frias was hired as a security guard and was described by his supervisor as “very professional, respectful with clients, with excellent communication skills; a problem-solver.” His supervisor added that Mr. Frias is a great asset because of his ability to speak English and Spanish.
