Young Mensans can connect with others of similar interests at local, regional, and national events. Young members are welcome at virtually all Mensa events, excluding activities appropriate for adults specifically. Special programming for children is provided at many Regional Gatherings, and several days of excellent activities for kids are provided at each Annual Gathering.
