Peer Instructor, NOPLAY Program
Wanda is a 2012 graduate of NOPLAY. While earning her GED wasn’t an early priority, she decided to register and was amazed at how open and welcoming the site was. After enrolling, she worked diligently toward earning her GED while working a full-time job, and graduation led to the improvement of other aspects of her life. She was promoted, got a raise, and was invited to take the Civil Service exam. In 2013, YEP hired Wanda as a Peer Instructor at the NOPLAY-Westbank site. She is dedicated to helping others and says, "Since becoming an instructor, I’ve realized how much I enjoy helping others, and I have plans to further my education by studying the education field."
