Think about something you enjoy doing and would love to do more of. That would be something you could offer to the OC Time Bank. Now think about something you don't enjoy doing, need help with doing, or would just rather someone else do for you. That is something you can request from other members in the time bank and pay the time hours you earn for someone to do that service for you.

As a part of the Orange County Time Bank you can help others while doing what you love.  You earn a time hour or time dollar by providing your skill or service to a member.  You can then redeem your hours from the “time bank” and use them for services of another member.  Everyone’s service and time is equal.  No matter what you have to offer an hour is an hour.

This group is open to all of those that live, work, or spend a great deal of time in Orange County, CA.

The Orange County Time Bank is a project of Catalyst Network of Communities ( , a 501c3 non-profit.
