For over 40 years, VANTAGE Workforce Solutions has connected Ohio seniors to employment by offering job training and placement to low-income adults age 55 and older. We oversee the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP), funded by the U.S. Department of Labor and the Ohio Department of Aging.
SCSEP promotes the self-sufficiency of older workers. We connect low-income, unemployed adults, age 55 and older to paid job training. Job training takes place at community-based and government agencies. These agencies are able to build their capacity with SCSEP support. For profit businesses may also use our contract training program to hire.
Who Uses the Senior Community Service Employment Program
- Older adults who are talented, hard-working, professional, reliable, trained and willing to work in part-time, paid job training opportunities with the SCSEP program.
- Host Agencies who are 501 (C)(3) non-profit agencies, community-based organizations or government agencies wishing to provide opportunities for work training while receiving support for their mission.
- Private Sector Employers interested in filling open positions by providing on-the-job training for older adults, paid for by VANTAGE Aging, with the goal of hiring the employee.
Together, we can make a positive financial and emotional difference in the lives of thousands of people by improving the job readiness of older adults while expanding services to the community.

At VANTAGE, our goal is to provide wrap-around services to our clients to be sure they are receiving all of the services they need. Becoming a client in one program will also provide you with access to other services that will support your desire to age in place. These may include Meals on Wheels, non-medical care from Home Wellness Solutions, access to the TeleCare program from RSVP to prevent social isolation, and counseling from our Behavioral Health Solutions team.
