“I am enjoying my time here at Wings. I am learning so much, like Excel and Publisher. I feel very useful here helping out with the credit card statements, bank statements, and even signing off on expense sheets. I am very grateful that NICOA placed me here with Wings. I am currently working on the year end reports and compiling all kinds of numbers for different aspects of our reports. I am really learning so much.” – Doreen Tenorio
NICOA, through SCSEP, is part of a network of national organizations and state governments that offer a federally assisted job training program focused on the needs of low income older adults. SCSEP is authorized by the Older Americans Act Title V and administered through grants from the U.S. Department of Labor. NICOA, which has been a grantee since 1989, is an agency serving American Indian elders with funds set aside specifically to serve that population. SCSEP fits well within NICOA’s overall mission to advocate for improved comprehensive health, social services, and economic well-being for American Indian and Alaska Native Elders.
The goals of SCSEP are to transition participants into unsubsidized employment so that they can achieve economic self-sufficiency, and to promote useful opportunities in community service.
