Cape Town’s Youth, From Victims to Victors. In June 2014, Salesian Life Choices launched a ’30 Stories in 30 Days Campaign’ to celebrate South Africa’s National Youth Month.

Salesian Life Choices is a Cape Town based youth organization. Motivated by youth everyday who rise above  their situations, Salesian Life Choices shared one inspirational story a day of a youth in Cape Town, for the month of June.

Due to the success of the campaign, in 2015 Salesian Life Choices developed a blog to showcase the stories of youth. We hope this platform

  • Gives a voice to youth
  • Inspires other youth to share their story, and
  • Creates awareness of the realities that youth face today.

As a youth organisation, we are motivated every day by young people who rise to the challenges of their situation. Through sharing 30 inspirational stories of young people around Cape Town through the month of June, we hope their stories will inspire you and help you see the value of investing in youth.
