Innovative training opportunities enrich participant experiences

In addition to the live occupational skillsĀ training received at their host sites, a4td’s SCSEPĀ participants have access to a wealth of other training opportunities. One of our most innovative trainings: the Money Smart program, administered by the financial professionals at Merchants Bank. Every SCSEP office in the state of Vermont has offered Money Smart to participants. How exciting!

Letter from Senator Sanders supporting OAA

The need for programs for older adults and workforce development are higher than ever! The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is the only federally funded jobs training program specifically targeted to mature workers.

We are proud of the efforts of Vermont’s Senator Bernie Sanders to support the Older Americans Act (OAA), which includes the SCSEP. In this letter, he and other U.S. Senators support the increase of programmatic funding levels for the OAA.
