RENEW Facilitator Training Institute

A Three-Day Training

Learn to Facilitate Success for Our Most Vulnerable Youth


A three-day, in-depth training on the Rehabilitation for Empowerment, Natural supports, Education, and Work (RENEW™) model and process. 

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.

A brief overview will covernecessary system supports to ensure successful implementation. Attendees will leave with the knowledge and skills to implement RENEW in their practices.

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.

  • 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.
