Share skills. Feel good. Strengthen Community.

A time bank is a community skills sharing platform in which hours are the currency.
You can join the York Time Bank here: York.timebanks.org

The York Time Bank (formerly York County Time Bank) strives to nurture resilient, interconnected community where everyone’s time is recognized as having equal value.

When you join a time bank, you strengthen community. You are acknowledging and acting on our interdependence which enables you to find more contentment and satisfaction in life.

You get to know your neighbors better. You learn to ask for and accept help from others. You break down the walls that separate us, reduce economic segregation, and build up your sense of belonging and well-being.

Since 2013, over 200 members have been making that mission a reality in  York!

    Hi what a great idea! Our homeschool group was just pondering a similar idea exchanging mentorships for kids and adults. Small business owners or people that are good at something can teach others who want to learn.I forwarded the info to them. Thanks!

    I read about Ithaca hours years ago and thought it would be a great idea for York. And, here you’ve done it! Good on you 😀

      Hi Katona,

      If you click on the join link on the home page, and follow the directions to sign up for the Time Bank, I think that is the most direct way to become part of the team effort. There is a meeting at 7 pm on Thursday May 12, at the Quaker Meetinghouse, 135 West Philadelphia St., York if you would rather come meet some time bankers in person before signing up, and they can help you with the sign up process and answer any questions you have about how the time bank works.

      Thanks for your interest!

    I run local girl scout Daisy (soon to be brownie) troop. This would be a great way to find out information and ways for the girls to give back. 🙂
