Time Banking is designed to encourage connections between community members on the basis that everyone has something to give and everyone has needs. Time Bank members commit to "give and receive" using Time Credits earned and spent. The "golden rule" of Time Banking is this: An hour of my time is equal to an hour of your time. One hour of service given earns one time credit. For one hour of service received, pay one time credit.
1. Assets: Everyone has something to offer
2. Redefining Work: Building home, family and community is valued work
3. Reciprocity: Encouraging givers to receive - and receivers to give - builds trust and resiliency and sharing
4. Community: We are stronger together
5. Respect: Respect is the root of equality
A commitment to the core values helps people to get into the spirit of Time Banking and helps keep that spirit alive. I understand that the function of Time Bank St. Ann's Bay is to facilitate the exchange of services within the community in the spirit of the core values of Time Banking. It is my responsibility to use the same caution I would in other circumstances to get to know a person, make reference checks, and use my instincts before engaging with another Time Bank participant - especially for babysitting, elder care, and driving.
