YAM – Young Adult Mensans

Hello. Due to the exceptional situation (COVD-19), the YAM team has decided to start again with only one event a month that will take place outside while respecting the new health recommendations of the province.
Please, only join us if :
you are feeling well
– you feel comfortable being around other people
– you are not at risk (or in close contact with populations considered at risk).
Thank you and looking forward to see you.

YAM is an acronym that stands for Young Adult Mensans. It is loosely defined as persons aged 19 to 45-ish. They are events for this age range, organized by persons in that age range. Everyone is welcome but note that events may include sitting on the grass (no chairs), walking and alcohol (not appropriate for minors).

YAM Social events: Lets meet for an interesting event (conference, exhibition, drinks…TBA as things come up). The location and details change every month, find out the details here, on the Mensa BC Facebook page and our WhatsApp Group. RSVP preferred for the main activity but not necessary if you only want to join us for drinks after.

Please don’t hesitate to drop by at any of our events to check us out ! We will be happy to meet you.

Our current YAM Coordinator is Céline Maisonneuve.
You can contact us at yam.vancouver@mensacanada.org or at 604-243-0900 if you have any questions.

ps: Working in the health sector I have been really busy lately so if you want to get more involved and you have some time to help organise the events (they can be of all sorts as long as they are COVID friendly ^^), please don’t hesitate to contact me 😉 Thank you
