Tampa Bay Time Bank is a community skills exchange, also known as a “time bank.” While Building a Resilient Community and Supporting the Shift to the New Economy. We are creating a new economy of abundance and social justice. By offering what we like to do and asking for help we need, we make friends while making the Bay Area more sustainable, resilient, and fair.
Time banking is a way to exchange services as a compliment to the cash economy. In Tampa Bay Time Bank we trade skills gained from work, education, life experience, hobbies, and volunteering, while making friends and building community.
Time banking is egalitarian. All activities are valued, and all activities are valued equally. One hour equals one hour. Each hour of work is equal to every other, regardless of the activity. We earn credit by doing something for another member, then we can use the credit by having any other member do something for us.
Everyone can participate in the time bank
Everyone is welcome and anyone willing to maintain a high level of trust is invited to join the community. Everyone has something to offer and everyone has needs. By participating, each member contributes to creating a resilient and sustainable community. Tampa Bay Time has members throughout the Tampa Bay area.
