Join a TimeBanking 101 Orientation
If you are interested in joining or starting a TimeBank an orientation is a great place to start, orientations are also great if you are already a TimeBank member but would like a refresher.
Our usual TimeBanking 101 Orientations are the first Thursday of the month at 5:30 PM, so the next two are October 6 and November 3 at this Orientation Zoom room. It would also be helpful to us if you could fill out this short orientation registration ahead of time.

“TimeBank offers us each an opportunity to use our talents to help our neighbors and rebuild the sense of community spirit.” –Stephanie Carroll, Coordinator of Community Relations & Legislative Affairs, City of Auburn Hills
We are an umbrella organization linking and supporting TimeBanks across the state of Michigan. We help individuals, organizations and communities establish and run TimeBanks.
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.
Over the last two years the importance of community connections and mutual aid have become more obvious than ever. You can support us by donating to our fundraiser for 2022 here.
