Did you experience a job interview where a potential employer asked you about your experience acquired outside of school? Did you try to make a match between official requirements for a job and your volunteer experience?

The Volunteering Working Group of the European Scout Region is ready to promote the Empower yourself! tool during various events. Why not to try it yourself or to organize a workshop in your association? So far English, Czech and Spanish translations are in use and others in preparation.
