ZCC interns meet at the Education Matters office weekly during their two month internships to discuss issues arising from coming home and working as a professional in Zimbabwe.  At these Friday gatherings, they also meet with and hear from young Zimbabwean professionals who studied abroad and came home to pursue their careers.  The interns also hold two college fairs, representing their schools, in conjunction with EducationUSA.
