Center for RENEW Implementation
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.

In this short video, youth explain how the RENEW process worked for them.
RENEW Learning Portal
Welcome to the new RENEW Learning Portal!
This online resource gives you access to RENEW training materials and tools, and can help guide you through the process of achieving optional RENEW Facilitator Certification, should you choose to do so.
As of July 1, 2021, the portal was fully migrated to the UNH Canvas online course management system. If you do not yet have access to the portal on Canvas, please reach out to your IOD RENEW Coach or to Cat Jones to invite and enroll you as an active Facilitator.
We are pleased that you continue to provide RENEW to youth!
