In partnership with Youth MOVE National (YMN),3 the School Crisis Recovery & Renewal project4 hosted
listening sessions to hear directly from young adults (aged 18-24) who have experienced a crisis while in K-12

Mindfulness & Reflection, and Radical Self-Inquiry & Critical Inquiry), examining each competency together to explore strategies and ways to be- before, during, and through crises.
While many school communities have resources, funding, and practices for the immediate aftermath and response to a crisis, too many lack resources to lead schools through the entire crisis continuum and integrate practices that support recovery, and ultimately renewal. The following guide captures content presented in SCRR’s Foundational Modules offered in 2020 providing introduction to the 10 pillars of recovery and renewal.
