Local Exchange News

You Made It!

We are very confident the time it took for you to join was time well invested once you fully understand the incredible potential of a service exchange. 

Do know that this is a service exchange and NOT bartering since nothing is being 'exchanged' directly between two people. A service exchange or TimeBank is a network of individuals, organizational and business 'members' that provide services, track and bank their hours and then spend those hours to get their own needs met.  One 'member' provides a friendly, neighborly favor to another and records the time they spent doing so.

 

Some Tips to Get you Going!

We are excited to have you join Hour Nevada County!  To get yourself going we highly suggest you watch the youtube tutorial videos to the left. When done with this, simply click "Login" at the top of your screen using your email and new password. This will take you to your "Home" page where you can see "Requests, Offers, and Announcements." From here you can hit your "Account" button and then hit "Profile" and create a short bio. You can start making requests by hitting the "+ Request" button and you will see a drop down menu that has hundreds of skills that you can request from other TimeBank Members. If a skill is missing, please let us know and we will add it to the list for you!

The "+ Offers" button will allow you to choose the skills/assets you are offering to other TimeBank Members.

The "Home" button will take you to where TimeBank  "Announcements" and "Requests and Offers" reside.

If you hit "Account" you will see what your profile and "Achievements" look like.

To better orient yourself to a service exchange and your community network check out the membership guide, talk to other HNC members, make an appointment for an orientation, join us for our monthly potlucks, create your own TimeBank 'group' to meet your specific needs, or simply learn as much as you can by pushing buttons! You will quickly find your way around and will be impressed by the efficiency of this community network!

We thank you for taking the leap of faith and look forward to Empowering Community One Hour at a Time with you!
