Co-ordinator of the WOWM Justice Youth Opportunity Desk

Celeste Davids came to the Centre at a stage of her life when she needed a light of hope like our Centre. She came mid-year of 2017 and made use of the opportunity to join us every day. Celeste came with her own lived experience and her transformation was and is so remarkable that it becomes our pride and joy to speak about her triumphant narratives.  As a born networker she encouraged visitors to apply to various opportunities in the City. Her inquisitive mind, diligence and instinct to take initiative has groomed her to be the best co-ordinator for the Youth Opportunity Desk. Because of the high unemployment rate of our youth (18-35years) Celeste created the Opportunity Desk to inform all the ladies and youth of training and employment that are available in the City.  Celeste started a filing system, WhatsApp group for the unemployed youth and attended network opportunities with Young at Work, Harambee, City of Cape Town. In a workshop about the name for this new department we realised that Celeste created and continuous to create ‘OPPORTUNITIES’ for our unemployed Youth.
