Archuleta County Extension office seeks senior citizen help

By Judy Campbell

Special to The PREVIEW

The Archuleta County Extension office is currently seeking one senior citizen to train there as a clerical assistant as part of the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP). This program trains seniors for gainful employment opportunities. The participant will be paid to train through funding from the United States Department of Labor.

SCSEP is an organization that is committed to improving the quality of life for low income, financially eligible seniors by assigning them to temporary subsidized training assignments and assisting them in their search for unsubsidized jobs in their community. SCSEP is the steward of federal funds appropriated to recruit, train and place eligible seniors in subsidized employment.

Workers must be 55 years of age, not currently employed and be on a limited income to participate. Wages and benefits are provided by a nonprofit organization funded by the United States Department of Labor.
