TimeBanksNYC is a citywide network of neighbors helping neighbors. It is a way for people to share their skills, learn new ones, spread their passions and support their neighbors. For every hour that a TimeBank member provides a service or shares a skill with another member, he or she earns a "time credit" for the exchange. This "time credit" can then be redeemed for a service from someone else in the network.
The TBNYC database offers members a clearinghouse of volunteer opportunities. Members can access the database, post individual service offers and requests or read the service exchanges posted by other members. TimeBanksNYC offers you an opportunity to help your community, save money, and meet new people.
