TimeBanks are at the center of a dynamic movement to preserve families, rebuild communities, affect systemic change, and promote transformation around the world.
The focus of TimeBank USA’s work is to continue the spread of TimeBanking, especially for populations who struggle in today’s economy. To that end, we help organizations and communities explore and set up TimeBanking as a tool to achieve purpose and mission by putting the core values into practice.
TimeBank USA affiliated TimeBanks are members of the TimeBank USA network. While there is no formal membership, we do invite TimeBanks in the network to contribute to the learning of others. We provide an infrastructure to share resources and to work together. TimeBank USA holds regular calls for TimeBank leaders to share their knowledge, and works with TimeBank leaders nationwide and internationally to expand the practice of TimeBanking.
We provide Community Weaver, an open source software that TimeBanks can use to share their member’s offers and requests with each other and to track their exchanges and hours exchanged.
