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 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.

Day 1: Orientation to the RENEW Process, youth and family engagement, personal futures planning.
Day 2: Team facilitation, progress monitoring, resource development, and transition strategies.
Day 3: Problem-solving for facilitators, education and support strategies, employment supports, and planning for adult living and careers.
