SCSEP enables them to acquire job skills and work experience by training 20hrs per week in non-profit and governmental agencies while they receive a training stipend for their efforts.  The Program also provides other opportunities for professional growth and development through educational workshops and internships. For additional information about SCSEP please see the directory and contact your local service provider. The Program is offered through the State and three national contractors.
