The Development Action Group is made up of a dynamic team of urban sector professionals. In order to develop capacity in the sector we often recruit local and international development professionals to work alongside us as volunteers on our programmes and projects. DAG also engages with students in the Architecture, Urban Planning and, Social Science fields and offers opportunities for them to complete their internships and research through the organisation. This could include providing assistance with housing design, media, web development and research and documentation.

If you are interested in volunteering, or becoming an intern, on any of DAG’s programmes or projects we would like to hear from you. Please send your CV and a letter of motivation to:, or for further information call 021 448 7886.


Help us continue our work to shift the unequal housing landscape in South African cities and create sustainable human settlements for poor and marginalised citizens.
