In this chapter we examine the program implementers’ views (N = 328) toward the community-based Tier 2 Program of Project P.A.T.H.S. targeting adolescents with greater psychosocial needs in Hong Kong. Results showed that program implementers generally had positive views toward the program content, program implementers, and program benefits, with no grade differences detected. Program implementers who served participants with “social problems” or “other problems” were more satisfied with their work performance, compared with those who served participants without such problems. Programs with different modes of delivery also showed differences in satisfaction ratings: program implementers who implemented programs with the element of “adventure-based counseling” or “interest-enhancement” were more satisfied with their work performance; program implementers who implemented programs with “work related” element or “other element” had more positive evaluation of the content of the programs.
