Free Classes for Older Adults available through Office for the Aging

April 26, 2021

 

Herkimer County Office for the Aging is excited to offer our older adults an online learning opportunity.

GetSetUp is an online community of people who want to learn new skills, connect with others and unlock new life experiences. The safe, social and interactive learning environment has been specifically designed for older adults. Classes are taught by older adults and kept small to ensure everyone can actively participate. The classes help older adults stay mentally and physically fit, and create economic opportunities through jobs and re-skilling, and we create a community where people find meaning and purpose by helping each other and forming new connections.

ALL CLASSES ON THIS PLATFORM ARE FREE TO ANY NY STATE OLDER ADULT. THESE CLASSES ARE BEING FUNDED BY THE NYS ASSOCIATION ON AGING AND NYS OFFICE FOR THE AGING. THE FIRST 60,000 CLASSES WILL BE FREE.

CHECK OUT THE VARIOUS COURSES WE ARE SURE THAT YOU WILL FIND SOMETHING THAT INTERESTS YOU.
