Senior Community Service Employment Program
The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) places individuals 55 and older who are economically disadvantaged into part-time community service assignments while helping them transition into unsubsidized employment.
SCSEP empowers low-income older workers to achieve economic independence while training in community service activities that assist in gaining marketable skills to re-enter the workforce.
The Division of Aging and Adult Services (DAAS) and four national contractors administer SCSEP in 98 counties in the state.
To be eligible, a person must:
- Be at least 55 years of age
- Be a resident of North Carolina
- Be unemployed
- Have an income at 125 percent of the poverty level or below
