This chapter investigates the effectiveness of class learning of service leadership in the Global Youth Leadership Programme (GYLP) using qualitative evaluation, which is the first qualitative evaluation study conducted for non-credit-bearing service leadership education in Hong Kong. Students reported their perception of class learning through three descriptors and one metaphor. Findings based on 47 students' reflection showed that 93.29% of the descriptors and 91.30% of the metaphors used by the students were positive. Together with other quantitative evaluation findings, this study suggests that service leadership education in the GYLP is effective to promote participating students' personal growth and service leadership development.
