GetSetUp is an online community of people who want to learn new skills, connect with others and unlock new life experiences. Our safe, social and interactive learning environment has been specifically designed for older adults. Classes are taught by older adults and kept small to ensure everyone can actively participate. We help older adults stay mentally and physically fit, we create economic opportunities through jobs and re-skilling, and we create a community where people find meaning and purpose by helping each other and forming new connections. Founded in 2019, GetSetUp is headquartered in San Francisco.
GetSetup Guides-Instructors teach online classes, part-time
to older adults (50+). They design, develop, and teach classes in subjects for which they have knowledge, interest, and passion. Guide-Instructors teach small, interactive, instructive classes. They use their love of teaching and excellent communication skills to engage, instruct and delight our older adult learners as they learn new technology and topics. They have demonstrable expertise that they are able to transfer to learners by covering class material by demonstrating, conducting exercises, evaluating and observing application of material.
Guides represent the GetSetup brand and receive comprehensive training in our tools, customer engagement and virtual instruction so that they are highly effective at meeting the needs of our customers. They host at least 5-10 online sessions per week.
