South African Graduates Development Association

The South African Graduates Development Association (SAGDA) is a Section 21 Company established by a group of unemployed graduates in 1997. The graduates were faced with challenges emanating from the South African economy's inability to create adequate job opportunities thereby rendering hordes of graduates unemployed. These young men and women decided to establish SAGDA with an emphasis on assisting graduates find employment and participate in the South African economy.

SAGDA has influenced public policy and has well sought after advice to institutions such as the Presidency, National Youth Development Agency, Department of Public Service and Administration and the Department of Trade and Industry. In November 2010, we launched a new organizational strategy and adopted a new vision/mission to navigate the graduate empowerment trajectory through viable partnerships, footprint to rural and remote areas and research .

  • Successfully placed over 1500 graduates in 2013.
  • SAGDA interns have assisted the Department of Public Works under the auspices of KPMG to save R34 billion within their property portfolio for the financial year ended March 2014.
