Thanks to a passionate Learner community, dedicated partners, and entrepreneurial staff, GetSetUp is turning two and continuing to grow exponentially! 

As we look back on how far we have come we know we couldn’t have gotten here without all the support of our community. Committed investors, staff, and volunteers have all contributed to creating a movement that truly focuses on a positive and empowering community to age in, from anywhere in the world. 

As we continue our mission to help those over-55 learn new skills, connect with others and unlock new life experiences, we are helping people globally to stay mentally and physically fit, creating economic opportunities through jobs and re-skilling, and offering communities where people find meaning and purpose by sharing their knowledge and passions and forming new connections. 

How far we have come

  • Over 100 partnerships including 7 statewide partnerships (MI/WA/NY/CA/WY/SD/VT) + 57 healthcare partners who recognize GetSetUp as a health and wellness benefit for their 6 million eligible older adults¬†
  • 4.6M older adult learners who have benefited from our service¬†
  • Over 31,917 classes taught on the largest global community focused on healthy aging¬†

Our impact

  • Fitness - Improved the quality of life for older adults globally that didn‚Äôt have access to a senior center or gym, needed virtual classes, or classes adapted for aging.
