At the Modern Maturity Center, we help older adults find work, develop new skills and talents, and build their financial security by sponsoring the Kent County Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP). SCSEP is an on-the-job training and employment program funded by the U.S. Department of Labor. The program is designed to help those unemployed, age 55 and older update their jobs skills, build work experience and confidence, and continue to have economic security and well-being. Call the SCSEP Office to learn more.
