Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP)

SCSEP provides an opportunity for unemployed seniors to return to the competitive job market through work experience and job training programs. SCSEP provides subsidized, temporary, part-time, community service work-based training for low-income persons age 55 or older who are unemployed and trying to re-enter the job market. Through this program, older workers have access to on-the-job training as well as employment assistance available through local WorkSource Centers.

Minimum eligibility requirements includes:

  • 55+
  • Resident of the City of Los Angeles
  • Unemployed at the time of enrollment and during participation in the program
  • Must meet federal low-income guidelines

(*Enrollment slots are limited and application does not guarantee enrollment)
