U3A South Coast is a non-profit, incorporated body of the 'Third Age' sector of our community. We are generally over 50, retired or part time working. We share educational, creative and leisure activities as lifelong learners.
About U3A South Coast
The University of the Third Age movement began in France in the 1970s and spread enthusiastically throughout Europe and North America. The first U3A in Australian established in 1984.
U3A is now active in most Australian states across cities and regional areas, where, like us, learning cooperatives draw upon the knowledge, experience, skills and enthusiasm of their own members.
Our U3A incorporated on 31 May, 1987 and although the Management and Program Committees meet in Victor Harbor, and the majority of presentations are held there, our groups gather along the coast from Goolwa to Victor.
We offer opportunities to learn, create, inform and socialise in a collaborative environment that contributes to members' overall health and well-being.
Our members have formed interest groups covering a wide a range of topics and activities, presented by members for members.
We make no distinction between learners, presenters or group leaders. We are all what makes U3A.
