Workforce Alliance of South Central Kansas

Meet Donna

Workforce Challenge

Donna lived in a very small Kansas town and had been out of the workforce for over a year with no luck of finding employment. Employment opportunities in her town were hard to come by, even for individuals with an advanced education and experience. Donna was concerned that her advanced age was keeping her from finding work.

Workforce Solution

Donna was enrolled into the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP). While in the SCSEP she was assigned to perform 20 hours per week of paid community service at the local congregate meal site for seniors. She was also referred to Dress for Success.

Outcomes & Benefits

After just a few weeks of being on SCSEP, she applied for a Site Manager job at the congregate meal site where she was assigned. As a result of the training she had already received while on SCSE,(and the excellent work ethic she displayed) she was hired right away at a a pay rate higher than what she earned on SCSEP and for more hours!
