NKCAC’s SCSEP has been recognized with national awards in the past and the program was recognized as one of the two highest achieving programs in the country.   The program earned this honor by exceeding five out of six measured outcomes indcluding: participants who entered employment, participants who retained employment, average earnings, service level, and service to those most in need.
