Programs Eligible for Volunteering

Teaching Scholars Program

The Berkeley Lab Teaching Scholars Program is a joint collaboration between the Career Pathways Office and the K-12 programs at Berkeley Lab.

The program seeks to help Berkeley Lab staff strengthen their science communication skills, gain experiences in formal and informal education, and provide connections to the local community. In return, the K-12 programs gain a stronger team of experts capable of explaining difficult subjects to broad audiences. This opportunity is open to ALL Berkeley Lab employees.
