Trainings can contribute towards generating employment opportunity for unemployed rural youth and thus play a role in improving socio-economic conditions and alleviating poverty. The present study elucidates the impact of training on poultry production to 40 individuals in terms of knowledge gain and entrepreneurship development. Majority of these trainees belong to less than 30 years of age and were educated up to high secondary level. All the trainees were subjected to a pre- and post-training assessment through a set of 30 multiple choice questions. Results revealed that there was significant improvement in knowledge gain as evident from pre- and post-training score. Further after six months of last training it was observed that 80% of trainees had either started a new or strengthened their existing poultry units. Thus, it may be concluded that skill development trainings on poultry farming not only improved the knowledge and skills of youths but also strengthened poultry production.
