Education for Adults
Welcome to all our returning and new ElderCollege Delta members!
Again we are proud to invite you to participate in a rich educational and cultural feast of more than 30 activities this term. We give special thanks to all our volunteer presenters who love to share their knowledge and expertise.
This term our Program Chairs, Paulette Tattersall and Sally Norcott are again pulling together an interesting program which has a focus on raising community awareness of the many changes in our society today. These areas of interest include our changing geology, climate and increasing understanding of the first nations in Canada.
Please click the button to read the list of courses, or, click the button to Register which will also give you a list of courses.
Registration for all courses begins on Monday, September 17 at 9 AM. You can choose to stay at your home and register online by paying with credit card – or, you can come to KinVillage Community Centre and we will have volunteers prepared to help you register and pay either with credit card or by cash or cheque in our office to the left of the welcome desk of Kin Village.
Once you click “Click Here to Register” you will be prompted for your Password. Just like other web sites, if you cannot locate that password, you may opt to “reset” it and new prompts will be sent to your email account.
ElderCollege Delta membership is $10.00 per calendar year.
ElderCollege Delta (ECD) is a community-based, volunteer group dedicated to a mission of enhancing knowledge and lifestyles. We take a relaxed approach, providing opportunities for lifelong learning and personal growth.
As with other KinVillage Community Centre offerings, our education courses are created based upon the wide-variety of interests and needs demonstrated by our target population of adults “north of 50”.
The courses are short, stimulating and are without pressure or exams.
All of the instructors are also volunteers, experienced in their respective fields. Typical courses offered are in computers, arts (visual, literary, musical), languages, psychology, science, current affairs, social issues, gardening and much more.
Two semesters are available, running in both the spring (April-May) and fall (October-November). With a nominal $10 annual membership fee and modest individual course fees, ElderCollege learning is both affordable and varied. Prior to each semester, watch the local papers for information and the libraries for brochures for current courses being offered, and, of course, here on the KinVillage website.
Over 600 mature students have enjoyed the benefits of ECD education. We always need volunteers and space to accommodate our many diverse learning opportunities. If you can or wish to contribute, kindly contact us.
Inquiries on courses or other matters can be made via email firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message at 604-943-0262.
YOU HAVE THE OPTION OF ENROLLING AND PAYING REGISTRATION FEES ONLINE WITH VISA OR MASTERCARD EITHER AT HOME OR IN OUR OFFICE WITH VOLUNTEER HELP.
Please note that ElderCollege reserves the right to cancel courses which have low registration numbers.
You must be a member of ElderCollege Delta to take a course. Membership fees are $10 per year and may be purchased along with registration fees.
Fees are payable by cheque, cash or credit card. Our goal at ElderCollege Delta is to be self-sustaining.
A refund will be issued only if a course is cancelled or at the discretion of ElderCollege for extenuating circumstances when requested by a student. If for any reason a presenter is unable to attend, we will attempt to provide a suitable substitute.
If you cannot be accommodated because a course is full, you may have your name included on a wait list. You do not have to be an ElderCollege Delta member to be on the wait list, and the registration fee is payable only after confirmation of a place in the course.
It is requested that the use of men & women’s scented products are not worn during ElderCollege courses due to individuals who have allergenic reaction upon contact with these scents.
ElderCollege Delta is pleased to partner with fellow organizations in other geographic areas outside of Delta, BC.

REGISTRATION TAKES PLACE EACH YEAR IN THE SPRING AND FALL. WATCH THE LOCAL PAPERS OR CONTACT US FOR SPECIFIC DATES AND MORE INFORMATION.
