Abstract: In this chapter, the impact of the Project P.A.T.H.S. in the university context in Hong Kong is illustrated. Based on the positive youth development constructs and programs covered in the Project P.A.T.H.S., a university version of the Project P.A.T.H.S. was developed in the form of a credit-bearing subject, with 42 of classroom contact. Utilizing positive youth development constructs such as psychosocial competencies and resilience, a subject entitled “Tomorrow’s Leaders” was developed at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University to promote the psychosocial competencies and holistic development of the students. The subject was piloted twice in 2010–2011 and 2011–2012 academic years. Evaluation based on objective outcome evaluation, subjective outcome evaluation, process evaluation, and qualitative evaluation consistently showed that the subject, teachers, and program effects were positively perceived by the students and the students displayed positive changes after taking this subject.
