Support Community Partners

In 2021, Berkeley Lab’s 90th year, we’re celebrating past achievements and imagining tomorrow’s solutions. As we focus on the next 90 years, Berkeley Lab will reaffirm its commitment to outreach, education, and diversity by supporting non-profit STEM organizations that help prepare young scholars to become our next leaders and problem solvers. Berkeley Lab is providing institutional donations to each of these organizations, and individuals will be able to participate in the charitable giving initiative by contributing personal donations and/or volunteering.

Each year thousands of student participate in STEM fairs, competitions, informational interviews and many more activities that prepare them for a career in STEM. Find out more about those opportunities here and through the Galaxy Digital Portal.

The Berkeley Lab Teaching Scholars program is a joint collaboration between the Postdoctoral Scholar and Early Career Enrichment Program and the K-12 STEM Education Office at Berkeley Lab. We aim 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 order to have a stronger team of science and engineering enthusiasts capable of explaining difficult subjects to broad audiences. This oportunity is open to ALL Berkeley Lab employees.
