Abstract: The design of the Project P.A.T.H.S. in Hong Kong is described in this chapter. Based on the relevant literature, a 2-tier program was proposed. For the Tier 1 Program, it is a universal curricular-based positive youth development program for students from Secondary 1 to Secondary 3 based on 15 positive youth development constructs. For the Tier 2 Program, it is a selective program targeting adolescents with greater psychosocial needs developed by school social workers providing social work services in the schools. The principles underlying the development of the Tier 1 Program and the major sections (unit aims, learning targets, teaching materials, teaching methods, implementation plan, teaching tips, and supplementary activity) in three teaching units (one teaching unit on cognitive competence and two on emotional competence) are presented to illustrate the design of the curriculum.
