At The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, a course entitled “Tomorrow’s Leaders” focusing on positive youth development constructs was developed for the students admitted under the New Undergraduate Curriculum in 2012/13 academic year to fulfill the requirement of “Leadership and Intrapersonal Development” under the General University Requirements. The subject was piloted in 2010/11 school year with very positive evaluation results. To refine the subject and to accumulate more experience, the subject was offered again in the first term of 2011/12 school year. The course content, evaluation strategies, and some initial findings based on the second piloting exercise are presented in this chapter. Consistent with the first piloting exercise, evaluation findings based on different strategies generally showed that the subject was able to promote the holistic development of students taking this subject.
