To realize this vision we promote the understanding that all work is important and should be valued equally. We help people recognize that they have much to contribute to others and facilitate connections between those who would like to give and those who have a need. We strengthen people’s ability to meet their own needs by exchanging talents and keeping resources in the community. We empower individuals and communities by reducing isolation and improving access to services and resources, all while having fun.
The values that drive our vision and mission are:
Inclusion – welcoming all in the community to share talents and interests, with a special focus on including people who are often left out of community life.
Reciprocity – acknowledging the importance of both giving and taking, valuing mutual exchange.
Interdependence – valuing the belief that we are all mutually dependent on each other, that none of us is truly independent or dependent.
Respect – noting that healthy communities are ones where people see each others’ worth and value each other.
Social Capital – believing that improving cooperation and building networks between individuals and groups benefits all and creates stronger and healthier communities.
Trust in one-another – knowing that we can believe in and rely on each other.
Community – strengthening bonds between individuals and groups in the community, knowing that others are there for us.
Caring – valuing empathy and concern for each other, providing for community needs as they arise.
Integrity – engaging in our work based on our values, treating each other with tactful honesty and respect.
The worth of all people – knowing that all people are important members of our community and have something to give.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has funded a team of researchers at the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), and the Pennsylvania State University (PSU) to conduct scientific research into timebanking. Their goal is to understand timebanking practices and the role that technology plays in enabling them and to develop new innovative technologies to make it much easier to do and more popular. This material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. IIS-1218544
The hOurworld founders and software architects have agreed to support this research free of charge.
All the Best,
HEP, hOurworld, PARC and PSU

All Time Bank members must attend an orientation session before you will be able to start exchanging hours. At the orientation you will learn more about the Time Bank and about our online system that you will need to begin exchanging hours with other members. You will have two hours credited to your account for attending the orientation. Orientations are listed in the calendar.
We are excited to get the Time Bank up and running, and the more people we have on board, the more services we can offer for each other. Please share this information with others. All are welcome at both of the orientations. Please let me know if you have questions.
