SEE: Senior Environmental Employment Program

SEE Program Overview

The Senior Environmental Employment Program, also known as SEE, assists the Environmental Protection Agency and other federal, state, and local agencies in meeting their environmental mandates by using the talents and experience of workers 55 years of age and older.

In the 1970’s, farsighted EPA staff recognized that experienced workers aged 55 and over were extremely underrated. As a result, the EPA created the concept of what was to become a national showcase for the skills of mid-career and older professionals who are now acknowledged as major players in a rapidly aging society.

Enrollees increase their technical skills, access new training opportunities, and take on meaningful tasks to contribute to the environment and to their own financial well-being.  The SEE program links federal, state, and local agencies with professionals 55 and over in administrative and support positions that range from clerical to scientific and field positions.

NAPCA matches seasoned professionals with government agencies nationwide from three field offices, located in Washington, D.C.; Chicago, Illinois; and Seattle, Washington.

NAPCA does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability in our programs and activities.
