GetSetUp Guides teach classes in areas in which they have expertise and expertise. The topics taught must be aligned with GetSetUp's main themes.
Classes at GetSetup are organized into these four themes:
- Technology - Technical tools, software products
- Enrichment - Cooking, Arts, Entertainment, Travel, Music, etc.
- Health & Wellness - Physical Health, Mental Health
- Professional or Personal Development - Entrepreneurship, Finance, Career Planning, Volunteering, etc.
Within these themes, class topics are dynamic with new topics continually added to meet the needs of our community.
In thinking about becoming a GetSetUp Guide, think about classes you might teach that match our focus areas. It's important to think about your topic and how it could benefit today’s older adults. Identify 2 or 3 things related to your topic that would be helpful or interesting for an older adult learner to know. Craft your class idea around these benefits.
For example, if someone has interest in technology, has expertise in Google and loves to travel, they might select a class that explores using Google Earth to virtually travel the world. Or, if someone has worked years as a recruiter, they may excel at leading a session on resume tips for older workers.
