What is a Timebank?

A TimeBank is a volunteer membership organization. It is a community of people who support each other.

When you spend an hour to do something for an individual or group, with Timebanking, you will earn one Timebank hour. Then you can use that Timebank hour to receive one hour of a neighbor’s time or engage in a group activity offered by a neighbor.

With Timebanking, you work with a group of individuals who are joined together for the common good. Timebanking brings out the best in people because, as a system, it connects needs with resources and skills.

In this simple way, Timebanking builds relationships and community. You get to know your neighbors and build an extended family of people who take care of each other.
