Experience Works, the nation’s largest nonprofit training and women organization for older workers, is now accepting applications for the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) Wood County.

The program is designed to help low-income older individuals enter the workforce, secure more challenging positions, move into new career areas or supplement their income.

“As the economy continues to falter many older Ohioans are finding it necessary to find work – either because they were laid off or because their nest eggs have disappeared,” said Kent Kahn, director for Experience Works. “Unfortunately, finding a job can be especially difficult for older people who may have been out of the job search process for many years.”

Funded by the U.S. Department of Labor, SCSEP, is free to participants who are 55 and older and meet low-income criteria. Through the SCSEP, Experience Works assists older people with self-assessments, technical and skills training, the job search process, and finding an appropriate training assignment with a local community service agency. The goal is to provide participants with the skills and tools to transition from their community service assignments to permanent employment with a local employer.
