When: Sunday, March 24 from 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm
We are an interconnected community of people who help each other by sharing our abilities, talents and experiences. By both giving and receiving, we learn to appreciate the value of each and every member and also come to believe in the value of our own contributions. When you provide a service for another member you earn one time credit for each hour you spend providing the service. You can then exchange each time credit you earn for an hour of service from someone else. Instead of separating our community into those who need and those who provide, we recognize that we all have needs and gifts to share.
Time Banking is a pay it forward system that connects unmet needs with untapped resources.
For every hour you help another member, you earn a Time Credit. Then you can use that Time Credit to have a neighbor help you: getting a ride, learning the computer, getting a haircut, gardening, etc. Time Credits value everyone’s contributions equally. One hour equals one Time Credit. Time credits can also be used to exchange goods, as well as services.
Time Banks have spread throughout the country, and into many Los Angeles neighborhoods. Come to an orientation to learn whether you should join or start a time bank in your neighborhood.
