TimeBanking for Change Makers

TimeBanks.org seeks to create an economy that values caring, reciprocity and a passion for justice. TimeBanking creates and circulates a tax-exempt currency that people earn helping others and building community. All hours are of equal value. One hour = one Time Credit.  TimeBanks.org has pioneered social and system-change by promoting civic engagement at the grass-roots level through the use of time banking. Time banking is a tool for you to use to further community-based efforts to advance social justice. Its use is spreading worldwide. There are now over 500 independent time banks in the U.S. and more than 400 time banks internationally in 38+ countries. 

As a proven social technology, TimeBanking provides a platform for activists and community leaders to tackle local problems by engaging citizens as co-producers of outcomes. In various communities, time banking has been used to enhance school performance, divert youth from the school-to-prison pipeline, reduce violence in neighborhoods, provide respite to caregivers, support  families coping with disability and create partnerships that bridge lines of race, class, age, national origin and gender.
A sample grant proposal will be provided with illustrative problem statement, narrative, goals, tasks and timelines.

New TimeBank software has just been released; it operates on smart phones, tablets, laptops, desktops. The session will include a hands-on demo so bring your laptop or smartphone; learn how to take access to the software home.
