The University of the Third Age is an international organisation whose aims are the education and stimulation of those in their third 'age' of life. By the early 1980's the U3A groups acknowledged that retired people have a lifetime of experience and, collectively, a vast amount of knowledge. The self-help aspect is used to start groups on a subject where each meeting is led by a member of the group with specialist knowledge. - Wikipedia

South Africa's first U3A was established in Cape Town at the start of the new millennium.   Each local branch is autonomous - although connected through support and sharing. U3A is a voluntary non-profit making organization.
Monthly Meetings : Various guest speakers are invited to address members on interesting and varied subjects.
Course Activities : Run by Group Leaders, usually at their homes. Members from all walks of life, share their knowledge, skills, interest and hobbies with others.

We meet every second Tuesday of the month at 10h00 in the Wesley Hall of the Northfield Methodist Church, Aerodrome Drive, Benoni. The entrance is in Hurricane Street.

Our current annual subscription fee is R50.00 per year to cover running costs. An entrance fee of R10 per person at the monthly meetings to cover tea/coffee and biscuits is charged.

If anyone has an expertise or interest that they would like to share, be it in the form of a group that meets once a month or a one-off talk, please let us know. We are always on the "look-out" for guest speakers that will give of their time to share information with others.
