Goodwill Central Coast is looking for seniors who are having trouble returning to the workforce and may need training.

The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) provides part-time work-based training up to 20 hours per week to unemployed seniors who meet income guidelines.

While helping seniors gain the ability to become self-sufficient, it also strengthens communities by placing seniors to work at non-profit community support organizations and government organizations.

The program is for Monterey County seniors who have poor employment prospects and are unemployed. Individuals who participate in the program must:

  • Be a resident of Monterey County
  • Be at least 55 years of age
  • Have low income

Goodwill assesses a qualified individual’s skills and abilities to identify a position with a nonprofit organization or public agency in the community. Eligible military veterans have priority. Participants acquire valuable experience and skills while having the opportunity to work in a professional environment. Participants also receive job search support with the goal of returning to regular employment after participating in SCSEP.

For more information about eligibility and enrollment priority (e.g., Veterans have priority) please contact:
