RENEW Implementation Team Manual

RENEW Implementation Team MeetingA team responsible for implementation is an essential element of successful and sustained provision of RENEW (for more information on implementation research, see Fixsen, Naoom, Blase, Friedman, & Wallace, 2005). RENEW Implementation Teams are responsible for:

  1. identifying staff to become RENEW facilitators,
  2. identifying youth who are eligible for RENEW,
  3. identifying training and coaching support for RENEW facilitators, and,
  4. collecting and reviewing data on RENEW outcomes and implementation.

The RENEW implementation framework includes a step-wise process to guide agency or school administrators who want to adopt RENEW as a new practice, beginning with an Exploration Phase (i.e.: "Should we do this?" and "Do we need RENEW?") through the training, piloting, and eventually the full implementation process. It is important to know that RENEW will not be sustainable in any school or organization if it is not supported financially and administratively.

RENEW Guide to Implementation

Many youth have experienced success using the RENEW model, and any organization that is interested in implementing it as a new practice should have a practical understanding of its many facets. Effective RENEW Implementation on all levels will determine whether or not youth will experience positive outcomes with the RENEW intervention. This practice guide summarizes strategies and tools necessary for successful RENEW Implementation.
