About Lach Howarth
If you drop by the Clubhouse, you’ll come across one friendly face in particular – Lach Howarth. Lach is YWCA Canberra’s Clubhouse Coordinator, and he loves his job! Lach has a background in software engineering at university and a passion for music. He got in to the community sector teaching music at a youth program as well as running ukulele classes at the YWCA Canberra Lanyon Youth Centre and loved it.

Lach loves all kinds of technology, so make sure to pick his brain about the exciting projects you want to try out at the Clubhouse!
