Openings are available in Michigan for a job-training program for low-income people age 55 and older.
Administered by AARP Foundation through a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor, the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) pays minimum wage for work-based training. Participants typically work 18 to 20 hours a week in community service positions at day care and senior centers, schools, government agencies, hospitals and libraries.
“This on-the-job training can be used as a bridge to find employment in a variety of private or public sector jobs,” said Michael Salesberry, SCSEP area manager. “Roughly one-third of participants are hired by the host agency where they received training.”
