Abstract: High quality pre-implementation professional training is the cornerstone for successful implementation of positive youth development programs. A qualitative evaluation study was conducted to understand the experiences of the potential program implementers of the Project P.A.T.H.S. in Hong Kong. The findings showed that participants highly valued the learning experiences acquired from the training program, particularly in the areas of knowledge acquisition and personal growth. Participants who benefited from these dimensions developed attitudes and skills that are desirable for the implementation of the Project P.A.T.H.S. Implications about the conditions that are conducive to the P.A.T.H.S. training program in promoting knowledge, skills acquisition, retention, application, and generalization are discussed.
