SCSEP Opportunities

Robin Last works in Houston County with the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP).  She is currently recruiting older workers that may need help obtaining employment in Houston County.  September is Older Worker’s Week.   They have several Federally-funded positions that they would like to fill.

 

WANTED!­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­ – Workers Age 55+
Unemployed?  Limited/low income?
Do you want to work?
____________________________________________________

Can you work?  Do you wish you had a part-time job?  How great would it be to do something to earn a little money and make your life better?  Have you ever used a computer?  Do you have a desire to help others?  Do you want to learn new skills? 

These are the type of questions that can help you decide if the SCSEP program might be right for you.  SCSEP is funded through a Federal grant as part of the Older American Workers Act.  Many people over the age of 55 often have difficulty finding work and maybe they physically just can’t do what they used to do but still have a desire to “do more”. 

Senior Community Services Employment Program (SCSEP) offers opportunities for older workers to earn an income by participating in community service assignments for just 20 hours a week, with the ultimate goal of obtaining a regular paying job in the community.  Veterans and their spouses, persons with physical limitations, lack of GED or other barriers to employment are encouraged to apply.  If interested, contact Robin Last at 731-884-2640 or email robin.last@tncsa.com.
