Statement of Purpose and Code of Conduct

Statement of Purpose of North Alabama Mensa Kids Trek
It is our belief that individuals who find areas of interest
and who receive opportunities and support become self-motivated learners.
It is our belief that self-motivated learning unlocks the door to the development of intelligence.

The purposes of American Mensa are:

1) to identify and foster human intelligence for the benefit of humanity;
2) to encourage research into the nature, characteristics, and uses of intelligence; and
3) to provide a stimulating intellectual and social environment for its members. 

Therefore, it is our belief that by creating a wide spectrum of frequent opportunities for exploration of potential talents, Mensa may enable individuals to determine their forte.  Therefore, it is our belief that the North Alabama Mensa's Gifted Children program should consist of a two-part system as follows:

A wide variety of programs open to all children up to age 18 who show avid interest in the topics and who have accompanying adult support.

Special interest groups for children up to age 18 who demonstrate exceptional ability and who have continuing adult support.

Mensa Kids Trek is free, open to the public, and geared for all ages.

Children must have adult partners.
