The objective is to assist unemployed seniors find full or part-time unsubsidized employment. It does so by enabling members to acquire work experience and job training at nonprofits and government agencies. SCSEP participants receive government-funded trainings in practical areas such as secretarial and clerical work. They receive minimum wage earnings, as well as need-based social services such as food stamps, senior apartments, Supplemental Security Income and legal consultation. Through the National Asian Pacific Center on Aging’s SCSEP program, there were a total of 2,040 trainees in FY 2014.
