​Definitions and explanations of Timebanking

Cahn explains, “A time bank is a new kind of extended family, where we ask people what they can do. We have yet to find someone that can’t do 15-20 things that they can’t put on a resume."

"And, for every hour that you give using some of those skills or capacities to help someone else, you get a credit and then they owe it to someone else to pay it forward to return the favor.”​

"Those transactions turn into relationships, the relationships turn into networks, and those networks begin to re-weave community."


Time Banking is a pattern of reciprocal service exchange that uses units of time as currency. -Wikipedia
