Abstract: The conceptual framework governing the development of a positive youth development program in Hong Kong is outlined. Scientific literature on the positive youth development approach, including the argument for paradigm shift from psychopathology to positive youth development, ecological assets, thriving, spirituality, engagement, connectedness, and positive youth development constructs commonly used in youth programs, is reviewed. Based on positive youth development constructs derived from the successful programs, 15 constructs were adopted in the Project P.A.T.H.S. These included bonding, resilience, cognitive competence, social competence, emotional competence, behavioral competence, moral competence, self-determination, self-efficacy, clear and positive identity, spirituality, beliefs in the future, prosocial norms, prosocial involvement, and recognition for positive behavior.
