The Jesuit University Support & Training (JUST) in Ballymun is an initiative of the Irish Jesuits which is designed to contribute to increasing 3rd level educational opportunities for the people in this Dublin suburb, helping them to realize their full potential in a real, tangible way.
Jesuits have lived and worked in Ballymun for over twenty-five years. Worldwide, they have been involved in 3rd level education since they were founded in the 16th century.
Building upon the experience gathered from a quarter-century of pastoral involvement in Ballymun, J.U.S.T. focuses on the specifically educational dimension of the area's present and future development. The aim of the project is to encourage more people to enroll in university-level studies, and to offer the necessary personal and academic support to those who have decided to take this life-changing step.
