BITE is here to support young people from Ballymun progress into third level education. We offer different programmes of support at different stages of their educational journey.

Junior Cycle

Our junior cycle activities are aimed at students from 1st to 3rd year. BITEs aim is to support these young people to have a successful start to their secondary education through a targeted after school provision, four days a week.
During this time, students are supported with homework, gaps in their learning and broader skills which support academic success, such as time management.
