Time Banking - Mar 14

Learn more about "time banking" from Calvert Resource Exchange, a southern county community time bank. Time Banks have been established in 34 countries, with at least 300 Time Banks in 40 US states and in numerous other countries since the 1980's. The "time" one spends providing community services earns "time" that one can spend to receive services. As well as gaining credits, people can gain confidence, increase social contact and skills through giving to others. Communities use time banking as a tool to forge stronger intra-community ties.
