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 Circles
Generally on the 1st Saturday of each month, 10 am – 12 pm. These potluck meetings are for TimeBank coordinators and those interested in learning about TimeBanking. We discuss various topics, share our wisdom and lessons learned and brainstorm on how to deal with our challenges. Please join us and bring a dish to share.

Location: Peace Lutheran Church, 17029 W. 13 Mile Road in Southfield (between Southfield and Greenfield Roads). If you are unable to attend in person but would like to participate via conference call, please contact us.

2019 Meetings: January 12, February 2, March 2, April 6, May 4, June 1, September 7, October 5, November 2 December 7
