U.S. Department of Labor funds Senior Employment Program

PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

BOSTON — With increased home heating bills threatening to further strain their limited financial resources, many low-income, older individuals are turning to the U.S. government’s Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) for relief. Funded by the US Department of Labor, SCSEP (pronounced SEESEP), enables qualified individuals to obtain paid, on-the-job training right in the community, update their job skills and develop new aptitudes.

Following a period in which participants work 20 hours per-week in a non-profit organization, the SCSEP program assists in the transition to a new, unsubsidized employment opportunity.

Cirillo urges qualified candidates to contact Joann Meehl at Operation A.B.L.E. at 1 (508) 799-1600, ext. 608 or 1 (888) 470-2253, ext. 140, to find out more about the program.
