In this chapter we examine the perceptions of the Tier 2 Program of the Project P.A.T.H.S. among Chinese secondary school students displaying greater psychosocial needs. Results showed that participants held positive views of program qualities, implementer qualities, as well as perceived effectiveness of the program. Significant grade differences in terms of various indicators of satisfaction related to program qualities, implementer qualities, and program effectiveness were found. Correlation analyses showed that there were significant inter-relationships amongst program qualities, implementer qualities and program effectiveness. In line with the predictions, both program qualities and implementer qualities were significant predictors of perceived program effectiveness. The findings provide support for the perceived effectiveness of the Tier 2 Program of the Project P.A.T.H.S. in the community-based project context.
