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 Wednesday of the month at 5:30 PM, so the next two are December 2 and January 6 at this Zoom link. It would also be helpful to us if you could fill out this short survey ahead of time.

Michigan Alliance of TimeBanks Learning Circle meetings
Generally on the 1st Saturday of each month (barring holidays), 11am-1pm. These potluck meetings are for TimeBank coordinators and those interested in learning about TimeBanking.

December 2021 Meeting: This will be our Annual End of Year Celebration! We’ll gather at Alice’s house (870 Gladstone, Detroit) from 11 AM to 1 PM to share a potluck and celebrate the year we have had. Unless it is raining we will be outside around a bonfire, so please dress accordingly.

January 2022 Meeting: We are meeting on January 8 over Zoom from 11 AM to 1 PM. We will have Stephen Beckett from the hOurworld Co-op joining us to talk about the new version of the TimeBanking software that is coming out after years of anticipation! Since our guest will be joining us virtually this meeting will be virtual only, we’ll return to an in-person option in February.

“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

Our Mission

We are an umbrella organization linking and supporting TimeBanks across the state of Michigan. We help individuals, organizations and communities establish and run TimeBanks.

Building Community

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.
