Funded by the HK Electric Centenary Trust and administered by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS), the U3A (University of 3rd Age) Network of Hong Kong was established in 2006 and covers 34 elderly centres to encourage local retirees to pursue lifelong learning and contribute to the community through volunteering.
Upholding the "learning for pleasure" principle, U3A has its own innovative learning model and is not bound by accreditation, assessment or any qualifications to be gained, but rather advocates interest-based and self-initiated learning. Classes are taught and run by elders for the elders.
U3A Learning Model
Students with similar interests come together to learn.
Students regard themselves as both learners and teachers, sharing knowledge among themselves.
Students plan, promote and conduct classes.
Students take charge of the operation, finance, administration, and recruitment of students and teachers for U3A self-learning centres.
According to a social impact assessment conducted by CSR Asia on the programme, 98% of U3A participants have achieved or maintained an active or extremely active level of social engagement after joining the Network. 75% of participants have become more confident in sharing views with others, boosting their confidence and self-esteem.
