Community Skill Exchange~Sacramento, a Friends and Neighbors Time Bank, is connecting city neighborhoods by matching time bank members to share their skills and talents. Inspired by the ideas of Edgar Cahn, a time bank is a sharing core economy that has gained in popularity both nationally and internationally (Go to timebanks.org)
Time banking is based on the simple formula that one hour of sharing a skill or talent with another member equals one time credit. The giving and receiving of services among members is recorded as an exchange using online open source software. Members manage their own profile and account, and can get assistance from the time bank Community Weaver Coordinator. Our Monthly Potlucks grow the trust and support needed for a robust, friendly, trading community.
We like the time bank concept because we feel it is beneficial to individuals and families by creating a way to make new friends, to give and receive help, have some fun and encourage face to face, real time relationships.
We look forward to meeting you!!
