Engaging Immigrant Seniors in Community Service and Employment Programs: A Guide for Providers
Adult ESL staff at CAL teamed up with Senior Service America to create a resource for organizations that assist immigrant seniors entering or re-entering the workforce. Engaging Immigrant Seniors in Community Service and Employment Programs: A Guide for Providers is intended to provide guidance for the staff of Senior Community Service Employment Programs (SCSEP, a U.S. Department of Labor project that subsidizes part-time employment for low-income seniors), workforce development agencies, agencies on aging, and other providers of services to older adults. The guide provides background information on immigrant seniors in the United States and the services available to them from SCSEP and partner organizations, and gives practical advice for employees of such organizations for working with seniors from linguistically and culturally diverse backgrounds.
