For all those who have expressed interest in the Tampa Bay Time Bank, you may be interested to know that we've collaborated with the 2014 Beyond Sustainability Conference at Hillsborough Community College to bring inDr. Edgar Cahn, "father" of the international time banking movement, and several other time banking activists. They will be speaking on both sides of the bay, and you are invited to attend.

If you're also interested in the conference, we have negotiated a VERY good rate--$35.00 for TBT members--and are making a one-time special offer of $45.00 for the conference AND TBT membership. You can sign up at the door.

Below is our current schedule of activities.

By diverting teens to peer juries, time bank youth courts in Washington, DC, keep kids’ records clean, reduce reoffending, and dramatically reduce costs. Run by teens, in 16 years they handled 1/3 of non-violent offenses, diverted 6,595 youth away from the criminal system, and cost only $540 per youth, far lower than the cost of the jail/court/prison system. 70% of participants finish high school or go to some type of higher education, and 92% of funds have gone to direct use. (Information from the Youth Court of the District of Columbia website)
