At adolescent students, the problems are generally caused by the negative evaluation of their daily activities, particularly in the school area that appear the negative affectation. Hence, this research aimed to find out the effectiveness of the “SENANG” training program in order to increase the subjective well-being of adolescent students. This quasi experiment was conducted by using the untreated control group design with dependent pretest and posttest samples using double pretest. The technique of collecting data was done by using Subjective Well-Being of Adolescent Students Scale. The subjects of this research were 18 adolescent students at range of age 15-17 years old with subjective well-being score in medium category. The results showed that the subjective well-being of adolescent students at the experimental group was higher than the control group after the intervention. The “SENANG” training gave a contribution to the subjective well-being of adolescent students up to 78.4%.
