Trilhos Alternativos (Alternative Paths) is a community-based program that aims to integrate African-Portuguese urban youth from low-income families into Portuguese society. This article describes the first year of the program and presents formative data about effectiveness of the program. The motivation system seems to be an indirect variable that influences social skills' acquisition by motivating youth to attend. Finally, outcomes are discussed in terms of improving practice in the second year of implementation. (Contains 3 tables.)
