The paper examined poverty eradication and economic empowerments through entrepreneurship education. It lays emphasis on the importance of entrepreneurship education in tackling poverty in the society and the types of entrepreneurship training that can be introduced to reduce poverty in our society. The study considered the level of insecurity posed by unemployed of the teeming youths in Nigeria, and recommended that the government at all levels should; as a matter of urgency, facilitate the establishment of more entrepreneurship training centres. This will help to impact knowledge in the youth as they will be more willing to become entrepreneurs rather than seeking white collar jobs that may not be available.
