The purpose of this research is to investigate the often-neglected interactions between the leadership of enterprise/entrepreneurship education, poverty alleviation, and unemployment reduction. The relevance of leadership of enterprise education is to produce graduates with awareness, mindset, and capability to generate original ideas in response to identified needs. The broad aim of this study is to shed light on enterprise education and its impact on poverty and unemployment in Africa. In this modern world, with the rapid development of technologies and an ever-changing market environment, the leadership of enterprise education could be facing significant uncertainty in Africa. The paper aims to identify solutions that would help to remove fundamental barriers to pave the way to the seamless implementation of enterprise education. It analyses a transitional pilot program to test the effect on poverty and unemployment trends. The paper culminates in a set of recommendations based on the findings. In terms of the methodology that was undertaken, a survey comprising of pre-tested and close-ended questions with self-monitoring capability was distributed to participants. Regression analysis was undertaken to understand the nature and scope of interactions between enterprise education and poverty alleviation. Stratified sampling was also employed to gather undiluted data to ascertain the influence of early education, in particular, enterprise education on youth. The study finds that enterprise education creates a supportive environment for jobs and wealth creation. It facilitates individual as well as national growth and development, and it creates sustained employment and poverty elimination. The paper finds that the youth engagement and empowerment can improve Gross Domestic Product (GDP), arrest social unrest, reduce crime rates, and eliminate economic insecurity.
