It follows the Second Age of employment and the First Age of parental responsibility. U3A is an incorporated non-profit voluntary community organisation providing low-cost learning to older people to encourage them to stay active and engaged.

Phillip Island U3A was established in 1996, starting with about 30 members and 20 classes.  Today they have over 120 active members and run many varied classes and events.
