Salesian Life Choices

Salesian Life Choices is a small yet robust NPO based in Cape Town. Since 2005, we have impacted over 200 000 people with choices, not charity. We invest in youth because they are 37% of the South African population… but 100% of its future.

Life Choices Academy began in 2017, with the goal of developing school-leavers’ skills so that they can obtain well-paid and meaningful jobs within a period of 12 months. Our academy simulates how companies work so that students are ready to join the workplace.

We run the academy like a social enterprise aiming to be self-sustainable in few years time. We empower young people to change their lives, tying our success to theirs.

This reflects our confidence in the curriculum and the investment we make in our students.
