Time4Time Community Exchange is an all-inclusive group of people from greater NW Philadelphia PA who share skills in exchange for time credits instead of money.

To join Time4Time, you need to complete an simple application from our website (www.time4timeXchange.org; then click on "How to Join"), and bring it with you to a monthly new member orientation (every 3rd Thursday of the month.  All T4T orientations and potluck notices are publicized on MeetUp.

Here's how a timebank works: Using time as the currency, one hour of service to another member or community organization earns the provider one hour in time credits. All work is equal: it is the time you spend providing a service that is valuable. By providing services, members accrue time credits that they can "cash in" for services that the they need. We are part of a national network of timebanks. We base our timebank on the following principles: every human being matters, some work is undervalued in our monetary system (like raising children, civic engagement, cultural and art work, and caring for frail community members), we all need each other, and everyone has something to offer. We are interested in rebuilding community by offering a means by which people can help each other one-to-one, or in community projects sponsored by the timebank and its community partners. We offer many opportunities to build trust and community through community projects and potlucks and other gatherings/events.
