Special to The SUN

The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is a federally funded job training program for unemployed seniors ages 55 and over. We are seeking employers in Pagosa Springs to partner with us and host a participant in the SCSEP program. The employer receives free help in exchange for a commitment to help the participant gain job skills.

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 paid training and assisting them in their search for unsubsidized jobs in their community.
