The San Joaquin County (SJC) Senior Community Services
Employment Program (SCSEP) is a participant-centered program designed to
provide and promote useful work experience opportunities for
economically-disadvantaged persons aged 55 or older, and to facilitate the
transition of job-ready participants into unsubsidized employment in public and
private sector business and industry.
The program has three major goals:
To provide gainful employment
through subsidized work-based training to low-income older adults;
To demonstrate how older
workers can facilitate the delivery of aging and community services by placing
them in human services positions and;

workers into high quality jobs in the public, private, and non-profit sectors
through training and job-finding assistance.
