We need your support!

We are a registered Non-Profit Organisation (004 -920 NPO) and for us to implement the Award Programme successfully, particularly for youth in marginalised areas, we do actively raise funds from the corporate sector, government departments locally & internationally.

Welcome to The President Award

The Award Programme is the most inclusive youth development programme in South Africa, enabling young people from correctional centres, community youth groups, residential youth facilities, resourced and under-resourced schools, tertiary institutions and youth organisations such as Scouts, Girl Guides etc. to participate and collaborate in Award activities as they work towards completing a Level or more.


Our Alumni network includes Bronze, Silver and Gold Award Holders.  Gold Award Holders belong to the South African Gold Award Holders Association (SAGAHA). SAGAHA was established with a view of creating a means and platform for Gold Award Holders to stay involved with The President’s Award.  The primary objective of this Alumni network is to afford Award holders an opportunity to mentor other young people, provide financial or in-kind support to enable others to participate in the Award programme, as well as Market the Award programme within their own professional platforms.
