The Guelph Wellington TimeBank was launched at the 2013 Resilience Festival (hosted by Transition Guelph).
The TimeBank has three main goals:
Strengthen the fabric of our community.
Serve people and give them a means to serve.
Establish new relationships and meet real needs of our community members.
We recognize that each person has talents to share, and that the overall community is strengthened when neighbors help one another. For every hour that you help meet the needs of another member, you earn a time credit for the exchange. This time credit can then be redeemed for services from others, and the never-ending cycle of sharing continues.
The GWTB is coordinated by a coordination team. This team is a group of volunteers who meet to plan activities and make decisions about how our TimeBank will run. If you want to contact the coordination team, or are interested in joining the coordination team, email at us firstname.lastname@example.org.
