Sourcewise Senior Employment Services operates the Senior Community Services Employment Program for Santa Clara County.
To qualify for this program, participants must:
Be 55 years of age or older.
Meet the household low income guidelines (no more than 125% over the federal poverty level during the last 6 months).
Be a legal resident with the ability to work in the United States.
Be a resident of Santa Clara County.
Be unemployed and able to work.
Sourcewise Senior Employment Services provides qualified low income seniors with employment experience and training. We have partnered with local organizations to provide on-the-job and/or classroom training to assist seniors in developing contemporary skills and work experience to facilitate their transition to permanent employment opportunities.
Senior Employment Services works within a network of community resources. If we are unable to accept you into our program, we will connect you to local employment resources such as America’s Job Center of California (AJCC) which is coordinated by the Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration at State of California Employment Development Department.
Community Resource Specialists are available to help Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., excluding national holidays. If you are interested in participating in Senior Employment Services, please contact us by phone at (408) 350-3200, option 5.
“Your program not just gave me training but lifted me from my depression of not being able to work. I am working full time and earning a wage that has improved my life, thank you - I am indebted to your company.”
My time and OTJ training ... in Gilroy was the best thing I have received. This training experience lead to me being hired in a full-time position, after thinking I could not find a decent job at my age. Thank you!
Thanks for the time and training I received at my host training agency...I am now fully employed and making a nice living wage, I will always be grateful.
I was unemployed for over two years and the SCSEP training program made me so confident and found me a job that I truly enjoy – thanks to your staff.
Thanks for the training and assistance in finding my job that I love...
