Welcome to Kent Community TimeBank, Inc.
WELCOME TO THE HOMEPAGE OF
THE KENT COMMUNITY TIMEBANK!
We are a community building program where we exchange our skills, talents and passions. When you do something you like to do for someone for one hour, you earn one Time Credit. You may then spend that Time Credit on any of the hundreds of services offered in our TimeBank! We opened our timebank in April 2010 and continue to grow weekly! We welcome you to join our timebank family and enrich your life one hour at a time! To learn more about timebanking in general, visit TimebanksUSA.org
If you are not yet a member of the Kent Community TimeBank, you will only have access to this homepage. To register, you may click on the tab to the right called "Create an account". After you fill out the online application, follow the instructions and our Membership Coordinator will be in touch with you!
Before being activated in the timebank, we ask that you attend an orientation, which will give you the opportunity to learn more about the concept of timebanking in general and specifically, how our KCTB operates. You will also get a chance to see this software before diving in!
