Umuzi supports young people to become independent value creators.

We are empathetic and demand-driven in our mission to understand and support young people on their journey towards high-value careers.

We continuously experiment with new ways to increase our impact across our ecosystem of products.

skills development

We recognise that young people, even if they are unemployed, have huge potential. We identify high-value career paths, and support young people to access them through free online learning, paid learnerships and internships, and work experience at top employers.


Umuzi Plug places our recent graduates in high-value roles, at top employers. We also keep in touch with our alumni, and support them to manage their careers, linking them to high-value mid- and senior-level opportunities at our partner employers.


We’re changing the narrative by celebrating our community’s success stories. Check out what our talented videographers, animators, designers, copywriters, coders and data scientists are up to. By showcasing the work of recruits in our Umuzi studio, and our alumni, we hope to inspire more young South Africans to dream big, and reach their potential.
