Youths constitute the most vibrant group in every society. The prospect of national economy and the standard of living of a people could be linked to the availability of gainful employment for youths. With the recent fall in the price of crude oil in the international market, and the resultant economic recession witnessed in Nigeria; the need for entrenchment of Entrepreneurship education among youth became more urgent and necessary. This paper therefore examines Entrepreneurship Education, its importance, challenges and roles in generating employment opportunities and reducing crime in Nigeria.
