Senior Community Service Employment Program

Goals of this community service and work-based job training program are to help participants gain skills and confidence to obtain employment, leading to economic self-sufficiency. The program is open to residents of Dorchester, Somerset, Wicomico and Worcester counties.

The SCSEP program at MAC provides training for low-income, unemployed seniors, working to connect their particular skills and interests with employment needs and opportunities at nonprofit organizations and public agencies throughout the Lower Shore, helping groups, such as the Joseph House Workshop, Somerset County Commission on Aging, and Dorchester County Division of Parole and Probation, carry out their missions.

Participants work an average of 20 hours a week, and are paid minimum wage. This training serves as a bridge to unsubsidized employment opportunities for participants.

Low-income adults, age 55 and older
