Helping youth to
make it on their own
Yvonne Godfrey: Helping youth to
prepare for adult life.
MIOMO stands for Making It On
My Own -- an intensive live-in
experience for 17 to 24 year olds
who have left school.
MIOMO is a 10-day programme
for 12 young adults from every
walk of life. Students discover the
real world beyond mum and dad
and the comforts of home.
Hosted at a well-equipped
facility in Albany, MIOMO
students learn to cook, clean and
take personal responsibility.
MIOMO covers essential life
skills such as fitness taught by
housefather and personal trainer,
and time management from
Robyn Pearce of gettingagrip.
More than 20 experts in their
fields teach other important topics
such as CV and interview skills,
budgeting and goal setting.
Students also receive one on one
mentoring for 90 days after the
programme, plus there is support
and many leadership-style events
are available for MIOMO
MIOMO makes life crystal
clear: The brutal reality of bad
decisions and the incredible
possibilities of good choices.
Students are not told what to do --
information is laid out with logic
to support it.
MIOMO is the brainchild of
Yvonne Godfrey, who taught a
range of skills for five years on a
volunteer basis to youth making
the transition to adulthood. She
was amazed at how badly
equipped young people were for
the adult world.
Yvonne believes that there is a
worldwide problem of how to
empower the next generation to
On MIOMO we equip young
people to think, speak and act as
adults. It doesn't work to have one
foot in the adult world and one
hand in Dad's pocket.''
Warehouse Stationery supports
the programme through
scholarships. Their HR staff also
assist students develop an excel-
lent CV and train them in inter-
The Fletcher Building
Employee Educational Fund also
provides scholarships for their
employees' young adults.
After 10 intensive, fun-filled
days graduation is an exciting cul-
mination. Students speak for
about seven minutes to their fam-
ilies and friends on how they will
apply what they have learnt to
Parents also have their own
session to help them lead their
young adults better.
MIOMO courses will be held on
February 9-19 and March 16-26
and a free leadership day for the
public is on April 16.
