TUCSON TIME TRADERS
Building Tucson’s Empowerment Network 1 Hour at a Time
Tucson Time Traders is a local Timebank for the Tucson region and we will give short presentations on our new Tucson web-based system during Sustainable Tucson’s August Film Festival on Monday, August 13th. We are also hosting community potluck & orientation meetings on the 2nd Thursday every month at the Tucson Ward 3 Office, 1510 E Grant Road, (southeast corner of Grant & Vine)
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.
