Utilizing the client satisfaction approach, the present paper reports the program participants' perceptions of a positive youth development program (Tin Ka Ping P.A.T.H.S. Project) in China. Upon completion of the program, altogether 7,289 Secondary 1 and 2 students completed a valid and reliable questionnaire (Form A) to rate on different aspects including program content, program implementers, and program effectiveness. As anticipated, most students evaluated all three aspects positively. Grade differences were observed, with Secondary 1 students reporting higher satisfaction on program content, program implementers, and overall satisfaction than did their Secondary 2 counterparts. Furthermore, perceived program content and implementer quality predicted perceived program effectiveness. In short, the findings underscore the effectiveness of the Tin Ka Ping P.A.T.H.S. Project launched in the academic year 2015-2016. Copyright © 2018 Nova Science Publishers, Inc.
