MENTOR: (NOTE: We are in a continuing conversation with her so this feedback will most likely be able to be updated in the coming hours or days) °That it is advantageous to be an NGO registered in both Mexico and the United States. °That this type of opportunity to create a sense of belonging and community is critically important to return migrants on an emotional level. °That we appear to have given significant thought to critical questions and should continue to test some of our questions.
USERS: °That the story board we created parallels their experiences and resonates with them. °That teachers will be willing to pay for part of their training costs. °That they wish this program had been in place when they returned to Mexico
EXPERT: °That it will be important to test whether return migrants are willing to fund part of their participation. (We are continuing to test this -- see above.) °That it will be important to consider partnerships with companies that are seeking a pipeline of English-speakers. °To test our assumptions regarding whether this program should incorporate a Bachelor’s degree or be a stand-alone shorter program. (We are continuing to test them; this is providing us direction for a proposed first pilot.)
