Kaunas Region University of the Third Age is an institution of non-formal adult education for senior citizens. It was established in 2012. At the beginning the organization operated as an integral part of an adult educational center. It was only in 2017 that it became an independent public body – a non-governmental organization. Currently the organization has 20 members –adult educators-practitioners – involved, who work in the field as unpaid staff. The members of the U3A are not professional andragogues, they are: librarians, teachers, community organizers, social workers, artists, etc. Every member of the organization starting with the director, the staff (adult educators working as coordinators) and ending with the lecturers, are volunteers, who donate their time, knowledge and competences to organize senior citizens’ learning and free time activities in Kaunas Region.
