In addition to participating in courses, you can become a TALK volunteer. To find out the perks of becoming a volunteer check out our "Become a Volunteer" page. 

How do I join?

Anyone over 50 years of age can join! All you need is a membership (annual cost of $10.00) and you can register for TALK's courses. To find out more about our upcoming courses, check out our "Courses and Registration" page. 

What kind of courses can I take?

TALK prides itself on providing a variety of course options from Health & Wellness, Arts & Culture or even courses that include taking you on tours off campus such as to the CityTV Headquarters in Vancouver!
