The classes are offered by a company called GetSetUp. More than 150 classes are available and range from technological tutorials to crafting, to social hours with specific topics.
The classes are designed for and led by older adults. Classes are offered online but also have a call-in option.
They're being offered for free now for all Michiganders ages 60 and up.
