It's time to give time.
WHO WE ARE
Located in Kingston, Ontario, our 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
This website acts as a place where people can connect with people: from learning how to code, speaking a new language, pet-sitting or volunteering for various organizations, Kingston TimeBank hopes to make Kingston a better place.
WHAT IS TIMEBANKING?
Timebanking is a time-based currency. Give one hour of service to another, and receive one time credit. An hour of service is always one time credit regardless of the nature of the service performed. Designed to increase our individual and community well-being, Timebanking takes place through exchanges by members as they give and receive services to each other, or through group and community activities and projects. Members can include individuals, groups and organizations.
Everyone has skills to share: our mission is to connect people with people –young and old, students and teachers, shy and eager– and make the most of everyone's abilities. We believe that nothing is more precious than time.
With the help of local organizations, there are always places where a helping hand could be used.
Kingston TimeBank is a not-for-profit which operates entirely off of volunteers and donations. With the support of each member, a small annual donation could keep the website running for years to come.
