A Note on Successful Implementation of RENEW

It is highly recommended that any organization interested in providing RENEW to youth begin by establishing an implementation team and a plan to receive ongoing coaching. Having the right structures and supports in place will help Facilitators maintain fidelity to the RENEW model, and ensure the team is tracking the data they need to measure outcomes and make informed decisions.
