SCSEP Program

Perhaps the biggest takeaway from the recent Aging-In-Exurbia event I attended was the focus on empowering the economic, social and intellectual capital of today’s seniors.

And I must admit, considering my experiences with my mother in a nursing home environment and the stream of questions I get relating to requests to find free services there are times I have been guilty of thinking of seniors only in the context of what they need from society and from government.

But in doing so, I completely overlook the benefit seniors can bring to our society.

Sometimes, they only need a little help to bring those talents to light later in life.

That is what the SCSEP is for.

The SCSEP, the Senior Community Service Employment Program, is a program you can access through AARP or the Department of Labor .

The goal of the program is to get seniors who wish to work and contribute to our society to continue to do so.

    The SCSEP, the Senior Community Service Employment Program, is a program you can access through AARP or the Department of Labor .

    SCSEP can also be accessed through every state. Usually found under aging services. For instance in Arizona it is under the Department of Economic Security Aging and Adult Services as the state Grantee. which has 5 sub-grantees such as ours in Pinal and Gila counties. Our agency,, Pinal-Gila Council for Senior Citizens ,Area Agency on Aging Region V in turn administers the program for these two rural counties.
