Hosts needed

The AARP is in need of nonprofit and government organizations in Livingston Parish to serve as host agencies for the Senior Community Service Employment Program. The SCSEP is a Title V government program that provides workers at no charge to the organization, a news release from the AARP said. These workers obtain valuable training in order to prepare them for employment, the release said.

Those eligible must be 55 or older, must reside in Livingston Parish and must not exceed federal poverty guidelines.

SCSEP pays the participant’s wages and workers compensation insurance, the release said. SCSEP participants are not volunteers; they are paid for their time in training and generally work 18 hours per week as bookkeepers, office assistants, child care workers, outreach workers, computer operators, custodian/maintenance workers, couriers, drivers, receptionists, secretaries, health care workers, sales associates, library aides and nutrition aides.
