Senior Job Training Program
ACC Senior Services is the Sacramento County office for the NAPCA Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP), a federally-funded program which assists low-income seniors with job training and finding employment. Job trainees receive paid skills training at “host agencies,” local 501(c)(3) non-profits and government agencies. Job trainees build skills and self-confidence, while providing community service at their host agencies.
This program is not employment. It is paid job training and career development, and all enrollees are required to work towards the goal of finding a job. Space is limited and applicants will be admitted based on strict guidelines and their suitability for the program.
About Our Program
- Eligible low-income adults 55 years-of-age and older will be assigned to a host agency (non-profit or government organization) where they will be provided supervision and training.
- Job trainees will train between 15 and 20 hours per week and will be paid the local minimum wage.
- Skills learned through training sessions and placements with host agencies will be useful in helping trainees to transition into unsubsidized employment.
- Trainees may also receive additional career counseling and training based on their specific needs.
- Trainees are required to register with a local job center and actively seek employment while enrolled in NAPCA SCSEP.
Our program has training positions available in many different areas such as office support, retail, telephone reassurance, nursing home activities, custodial, maintenance and more.
