The Jesuit University Services Training (JUST) project, based in Ballymun, Dublin, which has seen more than 50 people avail of its services this year, will be spending the summer break concentrating on promoting access to third level education in the area. They plan to reach out to the growing immigrant community and will have the services of a fluent Polish speaker, Prof. Helina Czosnynka, during the summer, as well as connecting with the Polish ministry based in Gardiner Street. JUST is also exploring how it can work with the second and third level Jesuit education network in Ireland. The JUST offices are currently in the old shopping centre, Ballymun, and they are awaiting news of, hopefully, a new main-street premises with the reconstruction of the new shopping centre. The death of Liam Greene SJ is still keenly felt by staff and students.
