Aurora Time Bank

What is a Time Bank?

A Time Bank is a community of people who support each other. When you spend an hour to do something for an individual or group, you earn a Time Dollar. Then you can use that Time Dollar to buy an hour of a neighbor’s time or engage in a group activity offered by a neighbor. Take a look at the Time Banking Way cartoon to see some examples.

It's that simple. Yet it also has profound effects. You get to know your neighbors and build an old-fashioned extended family of people who take care of each other. Time Banks change whole communities.

Why Time Bank?

With Time Banking, you will be working with a group of individuals who are joined together for the common good. It brings out the best in people, because Time Banking is a system that connects unmet needs with untapped resources.

In that simple way, Time Banking changes the world. It may be through a single exchange between two friends. Or it might be by changing the dynamics of human service systems that serve thousands and even millions of people over time.
