What is Time Banking?
The concept is pretty simple. When you spend an hour of your time doing something for another individual or group, you earn a time dollar. Then you can use that time dollar to "buy" an hour of time from another Time Bank member!
It's that simple yet it has profound effects. You get to know your neighbors and build an old-fashioned extended family of people who take care of each other.
Why a Time Bank?
With Time Banking, you will be working with a group of individuals who are joined together for the common good. It brings out the best in people because Time Banking is a
system that connects unmet needs with untapped resources.
