Our goal is to help stimulate the economy by placing older workers at non profit, state and local organization to support those organizations; while providing paid training to San Saba citizens. This places money in San Saba that may result in increased employment for older workers.
If your organization would like to partner with Experience Works and gain some paid support Staff, or, if you are an older worker who would like to support local organizations while being paid to increase your skills please call Peggy at 254-675-2024, or you can contact me, Liz Cox, by email at: Liz_cox@experienceworks.org

Senior Community Service Employment Program - The largest program offered by Experience Works is the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP). This program, funded under Title V of the Older Americans Act, enables us to help thousands of low-income individuals, age 55 and older.
Through this program, seniors benefit from training, counseling, and community service assignments at nonprofit organizations and public agencies in their communities, prior to transitioning into the workforce. SCSEP participants gain valuable new skills and experience that help them secure meaningful employment and provide valuable services to their host agencies and communities. In our last program year seniors on the SCSEP program contributed more than 11 million hours of community service and in the last ten years more than 55,000 low-income seniors found employment through our SCSEP program.
