Help Us Change The World One Hour At A Time

Berkeley Lab’s Government and Community Relations Office launched a service portal that offers Lab employees an easy way to learn about, choose, and sign up for volunteer opportunities in the community and with Lab-sponsored K-12 programs.  

The portal is well-aligned with the Lab’s commitment to public service, a core value of our stewardship campaign.  Employees who sign up for an account are helping to provide vital support to people, organizations, and communities in need, while also helping raise the visibility of the Lab and strengthening our reputation as a good neighbor and responsible community institution.   

To learn more about the portal and sign up for an account, visit this FAQ.  Thank you for helping us change the world, one hour at a time!

Stay Current 

Stay up-to-date on opportunities by tuning in to our new virtual webinar, Community Connections Lunch Hour. This monthly series hosted by  Berkeley Lab’s Government and Community Relations Office, provides opportunities for Lab employees to learn how they can support outreach activities in our surrounding communities.  

Each month’s session will feature informational talks by GCR staff or partnering organizations focused on current activities, the importance of the work our partners are doing in the community, and how you can help support their missions.  These sessions are meant to be interactive, and attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and interact with the speakers.
