Share time, get acquainted, build trust. Social events are a key way to meet others interested in volunteerism as well as people with simple needs who need some help. The Phoenixville Area Time Bank (PATB) is seeking individuals who love to organize creative events that bring people together, gathering for a purpose.
As we work to increase our visibility in the community, grow our membership and engage more of our members, creative events become more important. Are you up to the challenge? How might we reach an audience diverse in cultures, incomes, interests, and needs?
We have an existing events committee that has focused on monthly potluck events in member homes and 1 or 2 special events a year. As we grow and try to inspire more volunteerism in the Phoenixville area, it becomes important to hold events in public spaces, create themes or other buzz to increase attendance, and/or partner with other organizations to increase community impact.
This role can involve coordinating with the Phoenixville Chamber of Commerce, members of the Chamber, organizational members of PATB, other public or private spaces, and other nonprofit organizations.
Ideas for events would be coordinated through the Board and the Events Committee to confirm alignment with branding and our core values.
Phoenixville Area Time Bank is a non-profit organization that enhances people-to-people support to build a fully inclusive, resilient community through a local service exchange network. The mission of the Phoenixville Area Time Bank is to provide and foster an effective local service exchange system through which participants have their needs met and their personal abilities valued by using hours as currency; the ultimate goal is the building of a strong, responsive, and connected community.
The Phoenixville Area Time Bank (PATB) was founded in 2004. We take volunteerism on some fun twists and turns on our journey to build a resilient community. We support our organizational members (e.g., Orion Communities, Ann's Heart/ Code Blue, Parkhouse Rehabilitation Center, Camphill Soltane) by coming out to volunteer for them, either as individuals or in small groups. Members also help each other. When our members volunteer your talents and time, they earn TimeDollars. One hour is earned for every hour given. All talents and time are valued equally, which results in a nice cross-section within the membership.
PATB is at a crossroads to reestablish sustainability and expand our reach. We have recently benefited from a grant for legal services from the Quest for the Best Foundation. We reevaluated our bylaws, core policies and procedures and reset ground rules to fully support maintaining our 501(c)3 status. We are working to improve community recognition of PATB as a vibrant group of active volunteers that also builds friendships and reduces the feeling of isolation in this busy world.
PATB is a group of volunteers supported by a part time paid Coordinator. We are seeking energetic volunteers to fill several key needs as we transition to PATB 2.0.
