MIOMO set me up with the confidence and life skills to live independently and build a successful career. I wouldn’t be where I am today without the incredible knowledge I soaked up during my time on MIOMO.
Your future is too important – don’t hesitate to attend MIOMO. Your life will never be the same!

MIOMO is held 7 kms from Auckland City and is easily accessible from most parts of Auckland by bus and train.
Young people attend MIOMO from all over NZ, Australia and even Kuwait!

Since MIOMO is not live-in you will need to find accomodation in Auckland. If you don’t have transport, we recommend you find accommodation that is walking distance from the venue at 300 Great South Rd, Greenlane.

You have to be 16 yrs old to come on MIOMO and there is no upper limit. Most people attending are between 16 and 24 years of age.
Great news! Respect and positive expectations are how we roll on MIOMO. We treat you like a young adult and not a kid.

MIOMO is more like a conference than school. And, if you don’t like writing or struggle with it – you’ll be happy to know that there isn’t a lot of writing on MIOMO. There’s lots of exercises and talking in groups. And, if you are the shy type – that’s OK too. On MIOMO we want you to be yourself – contribute how and when you have something to say!

You sure do! And you can also say you have been on MIOMO on your CV that we will have professionally edited for you.
Yes, We encourage all graduates to be involved in the MIOMO Online Community.
