Abstract: The Tin Ka Ping P.A.T.H.S. project was designed to promote positive youth development in junior secondary school students in China. At the end of the first year of implementation, 1049 students from four schools completed a subjective outcome evaluation form that measured the participants' views of the program, instructors, and effectiveness of the program. Multiple regression analyses showed that perceived program and instructor qualities predicted perceived benefits of the program. At the same time, 21 teachers were invited to respond to a subjective outcome evaluation form assessing their perceived views of the program, themselves, and benefits of the programs. Results based on the data collected from the program participants and implementers generally showed that different stakeholders had positive perceptions of the program, instructors, and benefits of the program. The present findings provide support to the effectiveness of Secondary 1 curriculum of the Tin Ka Ping P.A.T.H.S. project from the perspectives of both program participants and program implementers.
