St. Pete Timebank is a network of individual, organizational and business members that provide services, track and bank their hours and then spend those hours to get their own needs met.
A Timebank is NOT a barter network, since nothing is 'exchanged'. One 'member' provides a friendly, neighborly favor to another and records the time they spent doing so!
To support the growth of a time-based community that teaches its members to exchange goods and services without the exclusive use of cash.
We envision a city where the time and resources of ALL PEOPLE are equitably valued as a community asset.
Here's a WELCOME MESSAGE from our Chair, Sandy Bigler!
Here's a LINK TO THE CALENDAR for the software trainings mentioned in Sandy's video!
OUR FIVE CORE VALUES:
→ Assets – Everyone has something to give. We are an asset-based society. Everyone's time is valued equally. We are the expression of abundance and we share what we LOVE to do with others.
→ Redefining Work – The market economy says the more demand there is on a product or service, the higher the cost or value of that item. Conversely, things which are plentiful, have little or no value. We value all work here, especially work that money doesn't usually pay for like building strong families, revitalizing neighborhoods, making democracy work, neighborly favors and advancing social justice. Time is our currency. Time spent doing tasks are what is recorded, or credited.
→ Reciprocity – each exchange is a 2 way street with both a giver and a receiver. You can't give without someone receiving, and we value both giving and receiving equally. We practice reciprocity in our community by looking at our accounts and making sure we give AND receive on a regular basis. A one-way extension of resources is not always sustainable.
→ Community – A supportive, loving community is built through the equitable sharing of goods and services. (We refer to this as Social Capital)
→ Respect – Just like Assets, EVERYONE deserves respect and everyone is respected for where they are in the moment, not where we hope they will be at some future point in time.
Here's what St. Pete Timebank looks like in an organizational chart. MEMBERS ARE AT THE HEART OF OUR ORGANIZATION. Without our members, we are not successful. Let us know how we can help you, and how you can help us!
