Disasters are sudden catastrophic events that disrupt patterns of life and property in addition to multiple injuries. India is one of the most disaster prone countries in the world, affecting over all 85% of Indian land and more than 50 million people thus far. This study was aimed to assess the effectiveness of awareness program on disaster management among the members of the youth club in Pillaiyarkuppam Puducherry, 40 samples were selected by using purposive sampling technique and Quasi-experimental design (One group Pre-test- Post-test design) was adopted for the study. The study result shows that the pre- test mean score was 11.85 with the standard deviation 3.12 and in the post-test mean score was increased about 32.5 with standard deviation of 5.03 and p-value<0.001**. The pre- test and post-test mean difference for knowledge was 11.85, 32.5 respectively. Thus there is a significant difference between pre-test and post- test score knowledge on Disaster management. Hence there is a significant improvement in post-test level of knowledge, hence it is highly effective.
