Community-Driven Classes Have Arrived at GetSetUp!

GetSetUp News Jul 27, 2020

GetSetUp is launching community-driven classes! That means members of the GetSetUp community have submitted their class ideas and passed the GetSetUp evaluation process that includes a test class to have their classes approved for the GetSetUp community at large. These new Community-Driven Guides come with a variety of expertise and past learners may recognize some familiar faces as GetSetUp Guides come to teach their passion in a new class.

Community-Driven Classes allow us to offer learners a wider variety of classes from a number of talented members in the community. We still offer our same great classes and have new ones coming on the way, but why not check out a Community-Driven class and let us know what you think?
