Share Skills, Feel Good, Strengthen Community.
The York Time Bank is a platform for the sharing of time and talents on a community-wide scale.
Time Credits and Time Credit Exchanges
Time credits are a special, tax exempt form of currency that anyone can earn by using their time, energy, skills, and talents to help others. One hour of service provided to another human being or to the community earns one Time Credit.
A Time Credit Exchange
A Time Credit Exchange is formed whenever Time Credits are earned and spent.
For every hour that you help meet the needs of another time bank member, you earn a time credit for the exchange. This time credit can then be redeemed for services from others, and the never-ending cycle of sharing continues.
The York Time Bank has three primary goals:
Strengthen the resilience and vibrancy of our community.
Serve people and give everyone a means to serve.
Nurture new relationships and meet real needs of our community members.
We recognize that each of us has gifts and talents to share, and that the overall community is strengthened when we help one another.
“Everybody can be great… because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” ―Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
