Abstract: This Tracer Study looks at 79 men and women in their twenties; 40 of them had participated in the Adolescent Development Programme (ADP) run by SERVOL in Trinidad almost 10 years earlier, while the other 39 comprised a comparison group. Results indicate that the former SERVOL trainees benefited from the programme in that they became better parents, had improved communication with their own parents, and developed high levels of self-esteem. These findings were reinforced by parents, community leaders and employers.
