WHO WE ARE
The University of the Third Age (U3A) is a non-profit organization for retired people or senior citizens, people in the “third age” of their lives.
It is committed to providing lifelong opportunities for people no longer in full time employment and rejects the oft held view that there is inevitably an intellectual decline as people become older.
It is a fact that older people are well able to organize interesting activities and that there is a wealth of skill and knowledge available among retired persons
U3A aims to provide stimulating courses, lectures and outings where knowledge can be shared and new skills learned. The accent is on learning and fellowship.
Please find out more below.
Today U3A is active in over over 30 countries around the world including Central and Eastern Europe, Canada,
U3A in SOUTH AFRICA
The first local example of the UK model was launched in Cape Town in February 2000 by Sylvia and Arthur Schrire.
U3A on the WEST RAND
In April 2016 the West Rand branch of the University of the Third Age (U3A) had their first meeting.
