The National Indian Council on Aging’s (NICOA) Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) works with elders to find employment in their communities to become self-sufficient. 2nd Chances Thrift Center in Bismarck, North Dakota, is a great example of how the program works in our communities!
Carol Schumacher started out as a program participant and soon became the assistant store manager. With her work experience, she was able to gain the skills that allowed her to apply for the position.
Store Manager Brad Wahl is a big supporter of the NICOA SCSEP and the progress of the participants that are placed there. Employers like these make it possible for SCSEP participants to gain the necessary self-confidence, skills and job opportunities.
We would like to take this time to thank all the employers that we work with in all states we provide services, and let them know how much their contribution means to us and the participants we serve. If you are a nonprofit or governmental agency, and would like to find out more, contact NICOA at 505-292-2001.
