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.
