Teachers in schools play an important role as companion students who are in the stage of adolescent development to be able to undergo their development period positively. Positive youth development can be done by providing them with good knowledge and abilities in managing their 5Cs (Competence, Confidence, Connection, Character, Caring). The understanding and ability of teachers in assisting students to direct student development in a positive manner is important because students are in school every day for eight hours. A total of 59 junior high school teachers in Malang Regency were given material on positive youth development. Pre and post-tests were given to measure changes in teacher efficacy in assisting the positive development of adolescents. As a result, there was an increase in the average score between the pre-test and post-test. Future studies can consider a longer time interval in providing pre-test and post-test activities.
