JUST another year

June 7, 2011 in General, News

just_01As another academic year draws to a close, demand for J.U.S.T. programmes is booming! With over one hundred 3rd level students from Ballymun now availing of its services, life is busy, but extremely rewarding. The work of JUST’s 8-person team is supplemented by a wonderful cohort of volunteer tutors and counsellors. Of the original group of undergraduates who enrolled in the inaugural programme five years ago, eight are now working on M.A. degrees, while three others are taking the first steps towards a Ph.D.  However, the real success story is the fact that so many Ballymun residents have experienced expanded horizons and career opportunities through the completion of an undergraduate programme. For any educator, it is a privilege to lend a helping hand on this journey. For more information on JUST: http://www.justballymun.org
