55+ and Looking for Work?

The Washtenaw County Michigan Works! Agency will host an onsite event with AARP on Wednesday, March 26th from 9:30 am - 12 noon at the Washtenaw County Michigan Works! Service Center. Representatives from AARP will be onsite at the Michigan Works! Service Center to talk with older workers (55+) about the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP). This program provides both community service and work-based training. Working an average of 20 hours a week, participants are paid the highest of federal, state or local minimum wage and are compensated by SCSEP directly. Participants are placed in a wide variety of community service activities at non-profit and public facilities like day cares, senior centers, schools and hospitals. This on-the-job training experience can then be used as a bridge to find employment opportunities outside of the program. To be eligible you must be age 55 or older, unemployed and financially qualified.
