Education for Adults
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 email@example.com or leave a message at 604-943-0225.
*NEW* this term is the option of enrolling and paying registration fees online either at home or in our office with our volunteer help. In the interest of fairness to all, the registration will open for everyone at 7:00 PM on September 11. You are welcome to go online from home – or come and enjoy the social environment at KinVillage and have a volunteer help you. And, of course, you may still pay with cheque or cash – even e-cheque. Please return to this web page for more updates and complete instructions for online enrollment.

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 (****now ****) credit card. Our goal at ElderCollege Delta is to be self-sustaining.
A refund will be issued only if a course is cancelled. 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.
