In 2021-22, EducationUSA, in partnership with Education Matters, provided a unique opportunity for 50 Zimbabwean high school career and college counselors to be part of a professional development program. The program trained, supported and empowered counselors who play a vital role in assisting students in applying internationally and in particular to U.S universities for admission and scholarship.
The program began in September 2021 and was delivered over 10 months through a series of virtual and in-person workshops. The professional development helped high school counselors build and strengthen the university and career counseling programs at their schools. The program also published a monthly newsletter to share resources with all counselors regardless of enrolment in the Counselors Program.
