Meet Fred

Workforce Challenge

After a recent move with his wife, Fred, who was already enrolled in the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) at his prior location, needed assistance in finding a job in his local area.

Workforce Solution

Fred was given the opportunity to perform 20 hours of paid ($7.25/hr) community service at the senior center near to his residence. He performed duties that enhanced his ability to coordinate, communicate and serve as assistant to the director.

Outcomes & Benefits

Fred continued to apply for jobs and obtained a part-time position as a Para-Educator at his local school district. He is now earning almost $10/hr for 34 hour per week doing something he loves - helping children to excel in academics.
