Organisation Description:

The Unemployed Graduates Association of Ghana (UGAG) was formed in 2011. It is a non-partisan organization which seeks to promote the well-being of all unemployed graduate and unemployed youth in general.

The association’s priority is to assist students to be creative and take up internship opportunities to enhance their skills and knowledge about the corporate world; at the same time creating platforms for graduates to take up opportunities or create opportunities on their own. We also engage university administrators on the need to create a direct link between students and corporate institutions, so that their training will meet the demands of corporate Ghana and also engage government and other stakeholders to create an enabling environment for doing business.

To help find solutions to youth unemployment by actively engaging all stakeholders while advocating for the creation of small businesses and huge investment in agriculture.

To empower the youth to take up entrepreneurial skills development activities while advocating for a friendly environment for doing business.

To ensure that all unemployed graduates in Ghana become members so that the plight of the unemployed graduate and all left high and dry youth can be pursued cohesively for the betterment of our dear nation.
