Welcome to the St. John Valley TimeBank!
What Is A Time Bank?
- A TimeBank is a group of people who trade an hour of work for an hour of work. The time is banked so you can trade accumulated hours with anyone within the network.
- TimeBanking is a rapidly growing movement that allows people to trade assistance, and helps build healthy communities.
Missions and Values
- We are all assets.
- Redefining work – to value whatever it takes to raise healthy children, build strong families, revitalize neighborhoods, make democracy work, advance social justice, make the planet sustainable.
- Reciprocity – “How can I help you?” becomes “How can we help each other build the world we both will live in?”
- We need each other – Networks are stronger than individuals. People help each other reweave communities of support, strength and trust.
- Respect – Every human being matters.
- We serve a limited geographic area.
- That area is initially the Northern Aroostook County.
