Dear Andrea,

we had a chance to discuss the idea of participating in a case study in 
the partner online coordination meeting this morning and I'm glad to 
confirm on behalf of the partner consortium our readiness!

  As to the implementation teams interview (focus group), there is 
readiness from all partners, who have piloted one or both training 
programmes with young people, to take part, and a request that our 
project external evaluation takes part as well as a silent observer. 
Would that be a feasible option for you? We would be ready to conduct 
the talk in English (four countries) and would ask you to offer us 
several options for an interview appointment as soon as possible, as 
agendas are pretty busy. As al alternative we could offer to conduct the 
interview after our next coordination meeting that will take place on 
18th April from 11:00-12:00 CET.

As to mediating contacts to young people who are active as role models 
after passing through the MOLA training (that's the name of the adapted 
training based on  POL ) the best would be to contact one of our 
Bulgarian partners, OSF (https://openspacebg.com/eng/) who can assist in 
contacting young people, who could participate in an interview in 
English. For the others that would be a threshold.

The contact details are  Pepa Peneva <pepa_p at openspacebg.com>.

Looking forward to your feedback as well as to the data protection 
informed  consent forms for all participants in the interviews.

Best wishes,
