Urban League: Senior Community Service Employment Program

The Urban League of Long Island, Inc. is delighted to introduce you to our newest initiative, the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP).

SCSEP is a partnership between the Urban League of Long Island, the National Urban League and the United States Department of Labor that provides "Community Service Employment Training" to unemployed, low-income individuals 55 years of age and older who are interested in re-entering the workforce. Community Service Employment Training is defined as part-time, temporary employment through which participants are engaged in community service and receive valuable on-the-job training and skill development that can lead to unsubsidized employment. Under the SCSEP project design, local community-based, public, and/or government agencies serve as the partnering host agencies providing up to 20 hours per week of Community Service Employment Training. SCSEP participants are paid minimum wage (via the Urban League of Long Island) for time spent in on-the-job training at the host agency. Again with the goal being training that leads to employment.

Please join us in spreading the word about this wonderful program. Should you know of any seniors, community based organizations, or employers interested in participation please feel free to pass along the attached flyers and/or my contact information provided below.

Thank you in advance for your support and assistance!
