The GPS Education Partners program changed me, helped me grow as a person. I am fortunate that my future has more opportunities now. I would definitely recommend this program.
Since joining GPSEd I made the decision to better myself. Whether it’s becoming a better student a better workers or a better person in general. To learning more than I would in high school and being involved in a better environment in the classroom and at work. Now that I have been with GPSEd for a little over one semester, I have been able to focus on myself and choose what is best for me with the help of others.
Before GPSEd, I was antisocial—I could not speak in front of big audiences. This program taught me how to be more open.
I didn't have a solid place where I belonged but after joining GPSEd I have found a purpose to work hard and I have dreams of buying a new car and furthering education in my career. Navigating life is easier because I have teachers that teach me more life skills. I can be extremely proud of myself knowing that I have a head start in my career and gaining confidence that is helping me become a better person.
GPSEd gave me the opportunity to gain work experience. I have been able to work at two manufacturing facilities; where if I was in high school, I would never have experienced manufacturing until I was older.
GPSEd has a positive impact on my life because it shows me what the real life experience is and not the ordinary school scene. I believe that this program is an amazing opportunity and it has furthered me in my career that I am already pursuing.
