"You teach me today and I will teach you tomorrow".  This is the slogan of the U3A organisation. The slogan helps to explain the original philosophy of U3A. (U3A stands for University of the Third Age)

U3As are not-for-profit, self-help, self-managed, lifelong learning co-operatives for mature people no longer in full time work, providing opportunities for their members to share learning experiences in a wide range of interest groups and to pursue learning not for qualifications, but for fun. There are no age restrictions.

Teesdale U3A is here to encourage you to:

  • Share your skills & interests with other members;
  • Develop new skills & interests by learning from other members;
  • Engage in learning as a leisure activity - we are learning for enjoyment and satisfaction, not for qualifications.
  • Make new friendships;
  • Widen your social circle and your horizons;
