“That experience at CMS is the main reason I’ve got to where I am”.
James, 18, knows the difference our support can make. James successfully completed his Junior Cert at Peter McVerry Trust Learning Centre – CMS and with ongoing support from Peter McVerry Trust, started further education.
Today, James works on site at a large multinational blue-chip company, where he services and maintains complex machinery worth millions.
