In 2014, the My Brother's Keeper (MBK) initiative was launched by President Barack Obama to address opportunity gaps of disconnected and disadvantaged youth, and to encourage positive future life and career choices through mentoring and support networks, while learning about careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
The Laboratory has participated annually in the MBK program since 2015 by inviting minority girls and boys from school districts in Oakland, San Francisco, Concord, West Contra Costa, Richmond, and Tracy to visit and enjoy specifically created tours that encourage and ignite a passion in STEM. In 2017, the event at the Laboratory was renamed to STEM Day at the Lab

More than 180 underserved and mostly minority girls and boys from school districts in Oakland, San Francisco, Concord, West Contra Costa, Richmond and Tracy visited Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory on Wednesday as part of the White House’s “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative.
It was an exciting day for more than 60 disadvantaged youth from Oakland, San Francisco and Tracy, who visited the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) for a special "Day at the Lab" as part of the White House My Brother's Keeper initiative.
