TimeBanksNYC is a free reciprocal exchange network in which people provide skills and services to one another by using time instead of money as the currency. The Timebanking model relies on the strengths and assets of individuals to bolster the overall community. All Timebank programs value one hour of service given to another as one time credit. It is a way for people to share their skills, spread their passions, meet their neighbors, and support each other.
As a member of the TBNYC community, you can help to:
- Identify untapped skills that you and your neighborhood residents have to offer.
- Promote skill sharing as a way of accessing services and support.
- Build networks, trust and mutual aid between the residents and neighborhoods of NYC.
