The study examined principals' management role effectiveness of secondary schools for youth leadership in Calabar Education Zone of Cross River State. The study employed survey research design. The target population comprised all 158 principals in both public and private secondary schools in the study area. The sample selected through random sampling technique consisted of 35 public and 35 private secondary schools principals, bringing it to a total of 70. Three research hypotheses were formulated to guide the study. Data were collected through questionnaire titled: Principals Management Role Effectiveness Questionnaire (PMREQ). They were tested at 0.05 level of significance using independent t-test and Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient statistical technique. Result obtained indicated that there was no significant difference between the male and female principals as well as public and private schools principals in their role effectiveness for youth leadership. Hypothesis three revealed a significant relationship between principal's administrative competence and the development of effective leadership role among secondary school students in Calabar Education Zone of Cross River State. The study concluded that principals' management role effectiveness could be a veritable tool for transforming youth leadership capacities. It therefore suggested that induction courses for principals on management strategies should be organized regularly. Furthermore, funding of institutions should be practicalized to ease managerial stress from principals.
