Growing young South Africans with the skills and confidence to lead happy and productive lives

Second Chance Trust is a public benefit organisation that educates young people on the dangers of alcohol and substance abuse and empowers them with knowledge and skills to make healthy life choices. It also facilitates interventions that promote healing and growth in victims of social issues such as rape, HIV, abuse and gangsterism - which are very often associated directly or indirectly with drug and alcohol abuse.

The Trust was founded by Jarryd Smith who has lived through, survived and overcome chronic addiction. In addition to his role as founder and Program Director, Jarryd is the author of a highly acclaimed autobiography entitled 180º Had to die. To live. This hard hitting autobiography is a brutally honest account of his downward spiral into the sordid world of hard core drugs and his excruciatingly painful journey back to a healthy and productive life.
