Abstract: In this chapter, the lessons learned from the implementation of the Project P.A.T.H.S. and analyses of the evaluation data collected from 2005 to 2011 for the initial phase are outlined. Relevant issues pertinent to the development, implementation, and evaluation of positive youth development programs in the Chinese contexts are highlighted. These issues include types of programs needed, theoretical and empirical bases of the program, multidisciplinary collaboration, training of program implementers, quality of program implementation, evaluation strategies and choice of program outcomes, and sustainability of the program. Finally, future directions regarding the development of adolescent prevention and positive youth development programs are discussed.
