SCSEP – Host Agencies

The foundation of the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is built upon a partnership between VANTAGE Aging and our Host Agencies.  Your organization can become a Host Agency if it is a 501 (C)(3) non-profit agency, community-based organization, or government agency willing to provide a realistic job environment to SCSEP participants. While SCSEP participants are trained to become a valuable resource to the Host Agency, VANTAGE pays their wages and associated payroll benefits.

Benefits of becoming a Host Agency

  • Increase the ability to deliver community services with an expanded workforce, at no cost to you.
  • Demonstrate community collaboration and leverage community resources as a VANTAGE Workforce Solutions partner.
  • Receive the benefits associated with hiring an older workforce, including strong work ethic, respect, responsibility, wisdom, experience, and integrity.
  • Gain the satisfaction in helping participants develop new skills and experiences needed to transition to full time, unsubsidized employment
