WEBINAR: How to Start a Time Bank & Skill Exchange

Want to exchange time and skills with your neighbors — instead of money? Join this free webinar to find out how! In a timebank, a group of people agree to trade hours instead of money. An hour of cooking lessons may be exchanged for an hour of dog walking, a ride to the airport may be exchanged for childcare, and so on. Time banks are a creative way to strengthen community, promote equity, and allow everyone in the neighborhood to exchange their time and talents no matter how much money they have. On October 11, 2012, the Center for a New American Dream presents a free webinar about how to start up a time bank and skill exchange in your community! The webinar will feature speakers from successful time banks around the country. Guest speakers: * Mashi Blech - Director, Community Connections TimeBank, Visiting Nurse Service of NY (New York, NY) * Janine Christiano - Founder, Arroyo Time Bank/Co-Director, Arroyo SECO (Los Angeles, CA) * Mira Luna - Founder, Bay Area Community Exchange (San Francisco, CA) Blech, Christiano, and Luna will talk about how they got their timebanks off the ground, and answer questions about how you can launch one in your own town! Webinar: How to Start a Time Bank & Skill Exchange Date: Thursday, October 11, 2012 Time: 1:00-2:00 p.m. EDT (10:00-11:00 a.m. PDT) Cost: Free Registration: here
