image: no job

Over 55, Unemployed and Looking for Work?

For more than 50 years, the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) has provided older adults 55 and older with opportunities to fill entry- and mid-level positions with employers in their local communities. AARP Foundation SCSEP has successfully moved thousands of older job seekers into jobsproviding them with opportunities to use their skills while also offering valuable work experience.

Interested in Becoming a SCSEP Participant?

Call 855-850-2525. 

How it Works

AARP Foundations SCSEP program provides both community service and work-based training.

Working an average of 20 hours a week, older job seekers are paid the highest of federal, state or local minimum wage and are compensated by SCSEP directly. The job seekers are placed in a wide variety of community service activities at non-profit and public facilities like day care centers, senior centers, schools and hospitals. This on-the-job training experience can then be used as a bridge to find employment opportunities outside of the program.

Who’s Eligible?

To participate, you must be:

Age 55 or older

Unemployed

Financially qualified

AARP FoundationҒs SCSEP program (CFDA 17.235) is funded with $77,808,096 million in grants with U.S. Department of Labor funds. This funding provides 90% of the support for SCSEP, with AARP Foundation matching 10% ($8.774,913 million). AARP Foundation operates in 19 states and Puerto Rico.
