The research finding showed that it is necessary to implement a strategy to improve KUBE management as a matrix result of weakness and opportunity factors. The weakness of Karang Taruna is that the purpose of developing entrepreneurial activities has not been achieved yet, and the other side there is an opportunity to develop entrepreneurship through Business Group (KUBE) management intervention to improve its performance. KUBE is a kind of social assistance program for underprivileged people by forming micro mini enterprises so that they can become economically empowered.
