Mensa, the high IQ society, welcomes people from every walk of life with IQs in the top 2 percent of the population. The organization’s stated purposes are to identify and foster human intelligence for the benefit of humanity, to encourage research in the nature, characteristics and uses of intelligence, and to promote stimulating intellectual and social opportunities for its members. Mensa provides a forum for intellectual exchange through a wide range of social and cultural activities, and offers opportunities to develop your mind, your social network and yourself. We are volunteer run, so if you don’t see what you’re looking for reach out and help make it happen!

Today, Mensa has approximately 120,000 members in 100 countries and recognized national groups in over 40 countries, with a vibrant online community.
