Culture Hacks

What is a Culture Hack?

A Culture Hack is a young person who volunteers in one of Lancashire's Libraries and helps make inspiring activities happen. Culture Hack is open to anyone aged 11-24. Young people can volunteer on a regular basis or for specific period, such as the summer holidays. The amount of hours can be flexible and agreed locally.

Being a Culture Hack is a great opportunity to build skills, gains confidence, meet new people and inspire others. Volunteering can provide valuable experience to go on your CV and can count towards other awards such as the Duke of Edinburgh.
