Easterseals-Goodwill provides transitional employment services through the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP). This program offers training opportunities to low-income adults age 55 and older in the state of Idaho and Utah who wish to re-enter the workforce.  It allows participants to overcome barriers to employment by gaining real-world work experience at non-profit and community service organizations, called “host agencies,” in the community.

How it Works

Participants are assigned to host agencies for about 20 hours per week. The objective is to provide current hands-on training that can lead to unsubsidized employment in the private sector. Assignments vary and range from six to 12 months.

In addition, SCSEP participants may receive training to update resumes and learn interview skills. Easterseals-Goodwill staff works with partners in the community to provide training such as updating computer skills, literacy skills, and improving English proficiency. Job leads are also a key component of the services provided.

Why SCSEP is Good for Businesses

For businesses, finding quality employees is always a challenge. By partnering with Easterseals-Goodwill, private employers gain access to a large pool of high-caliber job candidates. Mature workers have the work ethic, enthusiasm, loyalty, and life experience to be valuable assets to any workplace environment. Often the only thing they don’t have is the opportunity.
