Present-day entrepreneurship discussions reveal the importance and influence of entrepreneurship Orientation (EO) on organizational performance and profitability, yet its findings in the literature vary. Apart from that, the entrepreneurial self-efficacy (ESE) discussion also shows its influence on organizational performance. However, knowledge of entrepreneurial orientation influencing at the individual level such as ex-juvenile entrepreneurs is still lacking. Therefore, this study aims to examine the entrepreneurial orientation and the influence of self-efficacy on the positive behavioural change among ex- juvenile entrepreneurs in Katsina state, Nigeria. This study employed qualitative design and data collection through semi-structured interviews; and thematic analysis, as well as NVivo 12 Pro, was used to organize data obtained from 10 cases of ex-juvenile currently conducting entrepreneurial activities in Katsina state, Nigeria. The results of the study show how entrepreneurs who were ex-juveniles successfully make behavioural changes through the approach and application of entrepreneurial-oriented behavioural development. Apart from that, ESE is also able to influence the positive behavioural changes of ex-juvenile. In general, the superiority of SE influence in self-well-being, demonstration and self-realization of emotions makes ex-juvenile entrepreneurs more positive and increases their confidence in entrepreneurial self-efficacy and guarantees behavioural change as expected. Basically, this study fills the knowledge gap through testable prepositions and it concludes that entrepreneurial orientation and entrepreneurial self-efficacy influence ex-juvenile entrepreneurs’ positive behavioural change. Likewise, this study shows the importance of its contribution towards developing the field of entrepreneurship in general and to be precise ex-juvenile entrepreneurs. Keywords: Entrepreneurial orientation, ex-juvenile entrepreneurs, delinquent behavioural changes, entrepreneurial self-efficacy, Nigeria.
