Grand Gateway Economic Development Association’s Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is now enrolling eligible persons in Osage County. SCSEP is a paid training program for individuals 55 and older who are economically disadvantaged, long term unemployed, and wanting to re-enter the workforce.

Eligible persons are assigned to local public and non-profit organizations 20 to 25 hours per week and are paid a training wage of $7.25 per hour while preparing for and seeking permanent employment. The goal of this program is to help those 55 and older get back into the workforce by updating skills and providing services that will assist in their job search, while providing an income to help sustain them during their search.

These positions are funded by Title V of the Older Americans Actand are subject to eligibility restrictions. Grand Gateway is an equal opportunity employer/program.  Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request.
