Resilience, Empowerment, and Natural Supports for Education and Work (RENEW)

Creating Hope, Building Futures, Changing Lives
RENEW is a structured school-to-career transition planning and individualized wraparound process for youth with emotional and behavioral challenges. Developed in 1996 by staff at the Institute on Disability (IOD), RENEW is being provided by schools, community mental health centers, community-based providers, and IOD staff members to youth. The model focuses on supporting each youth to design and pursue a plan for the transition from school to adult life. RENEW has substantially increased the high school completion, employment, and post-secondary education participation rates among our most vulnerable youth.

RENEW Learning Portal

This online resource gives RENEW trainees and practitioners access to RENEW training materials and tools and can help guide the user through the process of achieving optional RENEW Facilitator Certification.

As of July 1, 2021, the portal was fully migrated to the UNH Canvas online learning management system. If you are enrolled in or have completed RENEW Facilitator Training/RENEW Coaches Training and do not yet have access to the portal on Canvas, please contact your IOD RENEW Coach or Cat Jones to invite and enroll you.
