Community of Practice Spotlight: Older Workers
This month, the WorkforceGPS Team would like to introduce you to the Older Workers Community of Practice (CoP). This CoP offers an online hub to share resources, news, and emerging practices about the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP), which provides on-the-job skills training to individuals 55 or older with limited financial resources.
This site is designed to facilitate peer-to-peer communication among SCSEP grantees and sub-grantees, Federal Project Officers, and the national program office.

Also worth noting, the last full week of September (24th – 30th) is National Employ Older Workers Week (NEOWW). NEOWW annually recognizes the vital role of older workers in the workforce and aims to increase awareness of this segment of workers and develop innovative strategies to utilize it.
