What's in a Time Bank? Five Events in L.A. and O.C.
Sharing skills: Time banks access untapped resources by sharing skills in exchange for volunteer credits, called Time Dollars. One hour = one Time Dollar.
Leveraging resources: These weekend events in Silver Lake, Pasadena, Orange County, Long Beach, and Whittier leverage member skills - using Time Dollars - to create community workshops, educational events, direct services, and service opportunities. Events include the following:
- Silver Lake Library Barn-Raising (Aug. 17)
- Repair Cafe Pasadena (Aug. 17)
- Kale Chips Dehydrating Workshop (Aug. 25)
- OC Mini Maker Faire (Aug. 17)
- Grupo de Conversación en Español (17 de aug.)
How to participate: You can participate as a volunteer, learn new skills, receive services, and attend events in exchange for Time Dollars or U.S. dollars.
