GetSetUp logo

GetSetUp is designed for older adults with the purpose of encouraging lifelong learning and socialization. Free classes are offered in a wide variety of subjects, including social media, financial planning, aging in place, and many more. They even offer regular social hours and other social activities such as book clubs. 

Take advantage of live and interactive virtual enrichment classes for FREE! Use the code CSL-Burbank upon registering for your classes to waive any fees.

Classes are taught by Guides, experts who are over 50 years old and bring their wisdom and experience into the class. Classes are small, relaxed and allow you to learn by doing. Questions are encouraged and will be answered live. Classes are made for everyone, regardless of experience or education in the subject. Seats are limited so that learners can actively participate and ask questions. 

GetSetUp has a catalog of over 500 classes exclusively for older adults. During the week, GetSetUp offers more than 40 live classes every day as well as 25 on weekends. It offers classes for older adults just learning technology, as well as classes in the following categories:

  • Physical Health (exercise, healthy cooking)
  • Mental Health (stress, meditation, dementia) 
  • Social Health (book club, gardening, pets)
  • Vocational Health (resume writing, interviewing)
