OUR MISSION

The Michigan Alliance of TimeBanks is an umbrella organization linking and supporting TimeBanks across the state of Michigan. We help individuals, organizations and communities establish and run TimeBanks (community skill exchanges).

Building Community, One Hour at a Time

For every hour you spend doing something for someone in your community you earn one hour. Then you have an hour to spend on having someone to do something for you. It’s that simple.

Michigan Alliance of TimeBanks Learning Circle meetings
Generally on the 1st Saturday of each month, 11am-1pm. These potluck meetings are for TimeBank coordinators and those interested in learning about TimeBanking. During the Pandemic we are meeting via Zoom (so no potluck) on the 1st Saturday of the month. Look below for video call information for our next meeting and future meeting topics

November 2020 Meeting: On November 7 our topic will be Project Planning. While TimeBanking doesn’t take any special programs or projects, many TimeBanks organize special events, group projects, or other programs to encourage more people to get involved. We’ll discuss the steps to go from idea to reality.
