Welcome To The Louisville TimeBank
The Louisville Timebank is a member run chapter of TimeBanks USA whose mission is to nurture and expand a movement that promotes equality and builds caring community economies through inclusive exchange of time and talent.
Everyone has talents to share, and the overall community is strengthened when neighbors help one another. For every hour that you help meet the needs of another Louisville TimeBank member, you earn a time credit for the exchange. This time credit can then be redeemed for services from others, and the cycle of reciprocity continues! The TimeBank as of June 2013 has 256 members and has a wide range of talents.
We can't wait to meet you and help you to start exchanging time!

So What is TimeBanking?
Members earn time dollars by using their time, evergy, skills, and talents to help others. Members trade all types of every day services, including gardening, minor home repair, transportation, computer maintenance, tutoring, etc. Services may vary widely depending on the skills, talents, and abilities of the current members. Time Banking welcomes all to participate, including youth and the elderly.
