Abstract


Lithuanian, as well as other contemporary societies, is undergoing the times full of new technological, political, economic, social and scientific changes.
In the changing society, non-formal adult education as a factor for the socialization of adult has become a popular form of adult education that helps a person to develop his or her cultural interests, creative powers, skills and acquire theoretical knowledge necessary for person’s professional activity, enables a person to upgrade his or her current qualification and helps to become an active citizen of a democratic society.
In Lithuania there is a tendency for the number of participants in non-formal adult education to increase, however, inadequate financial possibilities and lack of information are the main reasons that limit the number of participants in non-formal adult education. Insufficient attention of the state and society to non-formal adult education hinders the solution of these problems.
