Hey All TimeBank Members,

Make Saturday a TimeBank Day, attend this event for your community, and your community will do something for you. Really?

Yes, members that build community through civic efforts are rewarded with spendable TimeCredits. Read the details below of Saturday's fun event opportunity to earn community service "TimeCredits".

Send me, a short email describing your participation. Please include the preparation and drive time. As TimeBank Event Coordinator I'll enter your time into your TimeBank Credit account. How cool is that!

This is time banking, a new form of mutualism in which people who live in communities hear a new message which goes, “If you do something for your community, your community will do something for you.”

In reciprocity,
Tony Budak

If you think that young people are the solution and not the problem, then join our effort?

Help create Community Justice with Time Bank Youth Courts in the Mahoning Valley.

The reason why people (kids and adults) aren't constructively involved in their communities' justice issues is that there are not enough opportunities to practice civic engagement.

You reader are the leaders. Help yourself and create Community Justice Time Bank Youth Courts in the Mahoning Valley.
