The Senior Community Service Employment Program provides part-time employment for men and women 55 years of age or older who have limited incomes. SCSEP enrollees are assigned to positions that revitalize and enchance their job skills while supporting local non-profit and governmental agencies. The program is designed to promote the transition of participating enrollees into unsubsidized employment.
Copiah-Lincoln Community College SCSEP consists of programs funded through Senior Services America, Inc. and Southwest Mississippi Planning and Development District. Under the Older Americans Act, both programs are funded through grants from the U.S. Department of Labor. Federal monies cover wages, fringe benefits, and supportive services for enrollees. Local sponsor agencies provide most other project costs.
Work sites in non-profit or governmental host agencies are carefully selected by projects to furnish supervision, instruction, and training for assigned SCSEP participants. Host agencies also agree to consider hiring enrollees whenever job opening occur.
The SCSEP staff directs and oversees all projects to assure compliance with federal regulations and SCSEP policies and procedures.
