About Us

GetSetUp is on a mission to help the third of the world’s population who are over 55 to learn new skills, connect with others and unlock new life experiences. Older adults have incredible knowledge to share and new mountains (literally and figuratively) to climb, but until now they haven’t had their own place to pursue their passions and continue creating, growing, and giving back.

Empowering

We know older adults have so much to give and learn! We equip them to keep growing and we celebrate them.

Curious

GetSetUp learners are hungry for knowledge. We feed that hunger.

Hospitable

We are a virtual community where you learn with peers in a non-judgmental, supportive environment.

Soulful

We are a place for opening doors, deep thinking, and deep friendships.
