Integración de bancos de tiempo con otros proyectos y organizaciones

Integrating Timebanks with other Projects and Organizations

Timebanking is often used to provide a resource base and a way for people to gather to work toward a common goal. These can be time-limited projects or ongoing programs. Below are some resources to help recognize and navigate the possibilities.

Has your timebank run projects or programs? Integrated with other movements or social services? If you can contribute documents or writing on these subjects, please see below about how you can help build the Timebank Knowledge Commons, thanks!

Programs

Applied Timebanking is a concept that uses Timebanking to achieve a goal beyond just members exchanging with each other. Some programs that have used Applied Timebanking are Youth Courts; programs for elders with the goal of keeping them in their own homes and engaged in their community; literacy programs; and programs to help health care outcomes in low income areas. Setting up these programs take a higher level of involvement and expertise to have them set up well than a neighbor to neighbor, community building Timebank as they usually require staff to run the program properly.

Projects

Many Timebanks take on projects of all kinds to help their greater community to rebuild the Commons. Sometimes they are in partnership with other organizations or simply out of the desire of the Timebank membership. Helping build a community garden; hosting sharing events of all kinds– especially repair cafes, free markets, or skillshares; running a free store; setting up tool banks or seed banks; weatherizing low-income neighbors homes are all good examples of projects that Timebanks can accomplish.

Shareable’s learn together page (tb-kc) is an excellent resource for learning how to do many programs

Partnerships and Organizations

Many Timebanks have organizational and business memberships that add much diversity to a Timebank’s offers or requests. This report from the Crooked River Alliance of Timebanks in Ohio gives some great ideas on how partnering with organizations and businesses can build community engagement in a Timebank and specific ways that a business or organization can benefit from being a timebank member.
