Learn to Facilitate Success for Our Most Vulnerable Youth

Youth doing futures mapping


This modularized, interactive online training prepares school and community staff to become RENEW Facilitators.

RENEW is a youth-directed planning and support process designed to meet the needs of young people with emotional and behavioral challenges transitioning from school to adult life.

Through virtual group activities and instruction, learn to engage youth, facilitate personal futures planning through mapping, develop individualized teams and resources, direct the RENEW team process, conduct school-to-career planning, and empower youth to lead the process. Leave with the knowledge and skills to implement RENEW in your practice, whether remote, in person, or hybrid.

This training is the first step in full implementation of RENEW, which also includes receiving coaching and establishing an implementation team to oversee the work.


Modules 1–2: Orientation to the RENEW Process, youth and family engagement, personal futures planning.

Modules 3–4: Team facilitation, progress monitoring, resource development, and transition strategies.

Module 5: Problem-solving for facilitators, education and support strategies, employment supports, and planning for adult living and careers.

Who Should Attend

Middle/high school general and special educators, para-educators, psychologists, mental health workers, health care providers, social workers, youth and family counselors, and family members supporting youth ages 12–25.

Presented by the Center for RENEW Implementation at the UNH Institute on Disability.
