The “SAVF Jeugtuiste” Youth Centre has a long and renowned history.   The tenacity and endurance of the ladies of the “Natalse Christelike Vrouevereniging” culminated in the result that the “NCVV Dameshuis” was built and completed on        20 November 1954 after years of planning and deliberations. Dameshuis served as a safe haven for Christian Afrikaans girls who came from the “Platteland” to come and work here in Durban in the factories.

From 22 January 2000 male students were taken in.   The first floor was allocated for men and the second for ladies.

The NCVV amalgamated with the SAVF in 2003.  The proud “Dameshuis” became part of the SAVF and it was then re-named to SAVF Jeugtuiste, Durban.
