The National Council on Aging (NCOA) is the nation’s leading nonprofit service and advocacy organization representing older adults and the community organizations that serve them. Our goal is to improve the health and economic security of 10 million older adults by 2020. For more than 67 years, NCOA has been a trusted voice and innovative problem-solver helping seniors navigate the challenges of aging in America. We work with local and national partners to give older adults tools and information to stay healthy and secure, and we advocate for programs and policies to improve the lives of all seniors, especially the most vulnerable.
For over 50 years, NCOA has operated SCSEP, which places mature workers in temporary paid community service training to prepare them for permanent employment outside the program. NCOA currently operates 25 SCSEP projects in 11 states and Puerto Rico. SCSEP is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor.
Many Americans over age 55 want to return to the workforce, and many companies could benefit from mature, experienced employees. That’s why the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) was created—to help make connections between older adults and employers. For over 50 years, the National Council on Aging (NCOA) has operated SCSEP, which places mature workers in temporary paid community service jobs while training them for permanent employment. NCOA has successfully moved thousands of older adults into jobs—helping employers meet their needs for qualified workers while providing older adults opportunities to contribute their skills and experience. NCOA currently operates 25 SCSEP projects in 11 states and Puerto Rico. SCSEP is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor.
