Senior Community Services Employment Program

The Senior Community Services Employment Program (SCSEP) offers part-time on-the-job training positions to qualified persons. To qualify for the program a person must be at least fifty-five (55) years old, an unemployed resident of San Bernardino County, and meet federal low-income guidelines.

The purpose of the Senior Community Services Employment Program is to offer a temporary "stepping stone" back into the work force. Positions with the Senior Community Services Employment Program are not meant to be permanent employment. The Senior Community Services Employment Program is a pathway to employment, not a job in itself. Consequently, individuals are required to conduct job search in order to seek a job off the program so someone else may fill their opening.

The program is funded through federal Older Americans Act Title V funding.

Many people apply for the program and there may be a wait before we have a vacant training slot for which you can be considered.

What we offer:

  • On-the-job training with government and non-profit agencies for twenty hours per week at minimum wage.
  • Workshops to teach you the best methods for searching out, finding, applying, interviewing, and getting the right job for you.
  • Referral to agencies who have funds to pay for additional classroom training if appropriate to your job goals.
  • Occupational training to help you acquire new job skills or upgrade the ones you have.
  • Referral to other employment and training programs.
  • Referrals to other senior and social programs to help you in other aspects of your life.

In order to meet your needs at the local level, SCSEP Staff are assigned as partners at the Employment Resource Centers (ERC), formerly called One Stop Career Centers, in:
  • Hesperia – 15555 Main Street, Ste G-3/G-4
    Hesperia, CA 92345
