Goodwill Senior Community Service Employment Program &
MEBA Building Your Career Guides
Marissa Rowe, State SCSEP Team Lead, Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) at Goodwill Industries of Upstate/Midlands SC shares how they have used MEBA’s Building Your Career Guide to enhance participant learning.
“Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Goodwill Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) was able to use Building Your Career by MEBA to allow our participants the opportunity to continue developing their professional skills while at home. This book has assisted our participants with enhancing their employability and improving competency in Job Searching, resume writing, and preparing for interviews. Many of our participants do not have access to the internet, and through our partnership with MEBA we were able to bridge that gap by continuing to provide services to our mature job seeker population through the Building Your Career modules. Our participants find the book easy to use as it helps them build skills, and develop confidence in their ability to find employment. We were able to provide these books to our participants in Lexington, Richland and Kershaw County.
Goodwill Senior Community Service Employment program is a training program for low income individuals over the age of 55 who are seeking employment. Many of our participants are at risk of homelessness, low literacy, veterans, ex-offenders or homemakers who have never been in the workforce. We match our mature job seekers with non-profit and government agencies who provide our participants with part time training.”
