The DC Time Bank creates circles of giving and receiving. In the DC Time Bank, the unit of exchange is an hour and everyone’s time is valued equally. People exchange language, music, art, cooking, gardening, and design skills, editing and business plan reviews, child and pet care, car rides, and more. There are Time Banks around the country and the world, and the DC Time Bank has over 250 members.
For the upcoming Benevolent Media Festival on November 4-7, we’re launching a Benevolent Media Exchange. We’ll connect people interested in sharing skills with people interested in learning skills for storytelling and design for good. Skills could include anything from exchanging photography skills to sharing social media tips for nonprofit advocacy. By using the DC Time Bank platform, we’ll be able to create ongoing connections between people interested in these ideas! Fill out this form to join in the fun. We’ll do our best to find you a match and send you an invitation to our face-to-face meetup on Saturday, November 5 at 12:00 p.m. at Bread for the City.
